Cupcakes And Cashmere Thinks Your Loss Was Badly Timed

In the wake of recent office and sponsorship drama, Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere wants to explain how her life is more anxiety-inducing than yours.

In the post, titled “An Emotional Few Weeks”, Cuppy shares an “earnest and open letter to my readers” full of deflecting her missteps of the past couple weeks.

It all started a few weeks back when I received a call that will haunt me forever. It was our nanny and she told me that one of Sloan’s best friends, a little boy with whom she’d played daily since she was a few months old, had passed away in his sleep.

Emily claims she was “overcome with grief”, especially since “the timing couldn’t have been worse, with the amount of work and the countless sleepless nights that have been leading up to our biggest project yet (which we’ll be announcing on Thursday).”

She goes on to say she also had to let her famployee go, and then her cat got sick.

Needless to say, I haven’t been myself lately. And these series of events have affected a lot of things, business-related and otherwise, and I’ve been struggling to figure out the best way to handle them.

Because only in blogging can you get out of a self-created professional jam by waving the anxiety-and-hard-life-moments flag. Oh well, I sure hope that big project works out even though that inconvenient death of a child happened.
