I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years


In a couple of days, I'll be the big 3-0! I don't really mind turning 30, but it's still weird to think my days of being a "20-something" are over. The past decade has been an amazing adventure -- college graduation, Bolivia, my first career, my second career, getting married. I'm not sure that they'll be as many "big life" events over the next decade, but I'm sure we'll find ourselves into some excitement just the same.

Oops. I'm desperately in need of an update. Update coming soon to a blog near you....

In the meantime, happy Friday!

Feeding an Army

The problem I have with a lot of art forms is what to do with the final product. I enjoy the creative process and making pretty (or yummy!) things, but I hate to do so without having a definite purpose in mind -- a definite need in my house, a specific person to give the thing to, etc.

Unfortunately, that same hesitation applies to baking. For the most part, I enjoy baking and trying new recipes. Some of the blogs I read are full of brownies, bars, cakes, and cookies that look absolutely decadent...and that serve 16.

Sometimes I feel like I need to find an army or a soccer team to cook for. But only when I feel like it. You know...I don't want an official position with responsibility or anything crazy like that. I just enjoy baking for other people when I have the time and finances to do so. With two people in our house, that can be tough sometimes. Dave and I both have a sweet tooth, but really, do we need to eat a dozen cupcakes each? Tempting, but no.

Oh well. C'est la vie and let them eat cake. There should be more than enough to go around.

Mmm, cupcakes!
