Oh thanks so much, you guys!!!!! You can't imagine how sweet it was to wake up and read all these notes today. I must have hit a nerve with that post--it's had over 310 views already
costumeczar...I know, right? I didn't even think that list of *Doing This*...instead of... *That*, would end up going so long, but when I started thinking of it as a comparison, it was ALL true (plus so many more)...
You're right, that list *should* be required reading, lol. Just a reality check, really. Make sure you're willing to be doing...*this*...instead of...*that*. -It's not all sugar and spice and everything nice... ;) Obviously, feel free to share any of that with newbies; if my experience can help anyone, I'm all for it.
I love my life so much now; and it's just absolutely heartwarming to hear all your lovely support!! I do plan to keep blogging and whatever, because it's fun, so feel free to follow there, and thanks for the shouts out on Twitter, too!
I can (almost) feel a cake for our family coming soon...I'm actually kind of craving cake lately. It's been over 6 months since I even picked up a piping bag or greased a pan, and I haven't eaten a bite of cake in that time, so probably soon, maybe.
I will be adding all my prior recipes to my cookbook project, so I'm sure the craving for cake will increase accordingly.
Thanks again, you guys are awesome
Heading out to pick pickles and basil :D
