Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes

Right now in the Bean, it is pouring rain. I might even venture to say it is chilly outside. And on television, I just saw a back-to-school commercial. I mean it is July, and at my new job, we are planning our holiday menu! Is it just me, or is this summer flying by? I haven't even been to the beach and suddenly I find my mind wandering to cozy sweaters and warm coffee drinks.
But before I get carried away with my lusty thoughts for autumn, I want to hold on to the summer just a little longer. Lazy days, hazy afternoons and long evenings. Roof tops, grill food and late night walks.
Dripping ice cream cones, sangria and the best fruit the year will offer. So before you get carried away thinking about the rest of the year to come, hold on to your summer for just a few weeks longer. Found this gem on Annie's Eats and would highly recommend the combination between sweet blueberries, smooth cream cheese frosting and zesty bright lemon.

3. To make the frosting, combine the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on medium-high speed until well combined and smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in the lemon juice and lemon zest. Gradually beat in the confectioners’ sugar until totally incorporated, increase the speed and then beat until smooth. Frost cooled cupcakes as desired. (I used a large, unlabeled star tip to frost these cupcakes.) Garnish with fresh blueberries.
