I am married a great man, Channa.
We have a beautiful daughter, Sophia.
Our house is also home to an annoying beagle/jack russell, Louie and the cutest long-haired basset hound you'll ever see, Bruce Lee.
I haven't found a job yet that I loved so much that I couldn't imagine life without doing it forever.
That being said, I was previously working for a wonderful world-wide insurance company processing death claims. Doesn't sound fabulous, I know...but I loved it, the company, and the people I worked with. However it was an hour commute for me each way every day.
With gas prices constantly going up, my pocket-book was shrinking quickly.
So I decided to share my love of baking with people that I knew.
I started a made-to-order, cupcake business from my home in the evenings and weekends.
That grew into cookies and now cakes also.
After lots of cookies, cupcakes and soul-searching, I decided to leave my job in the corporate-world to stay at home with my daughter and bake.
Well I needed some money to buy baking ingredients and packaging...so that led to me providing in-home daycare.
Although I don't foresee myself being an in-home provider forever, until my girl heads off to elementary school, I'm pretty darn happy doing it.
Baking and cooking have definitely become my passion.
I am self-taught in the decorating as I never have attended a class or have been shown by anyone...so it is all trial and error.
I love reading baking blogs for inspiration and for great pointers and tips, and that is why I decided to start blogging!
I dabble in crafts and recently DIY projects now that I'm home all the time.
Now I am here to share my experiences with you!
One of my favorite experiences in life is traveling. I want to share with you all our family travels and tips.
As we always travel on a "budget". Because in reality...who doesn't live on a 'fixed' income? I hope someone can find bits of my life useful!
What works, what doesn't, what I need to improve...all that will hopefully lead me on the path to my "forever" job.
Thanks for taking the journey with me.
