Do you ever have those moments when you just want to pinch yourself? I sure had that a few weeks ago as I stood in my friends beautiful kitchen and made a huge mess while taking pictures of MY cookies. Cookies that I first made as a gift for my future nephew’s baby shower. Cookies that kinda just fell in my lap and have done so much to save the last year+. I just feel SO FREAKING BLESSED!!! The idea that I can create these works of art and have anyone care about them still blows my mind.
All my life, I have been a creative. I love to dive into a project and really figure out the ins and outs of making it work. I’m a ONE on the Enneagram. I seek perfection, but I have learned over the years that perfection will never come. There is ALWAYS room to learn something new or develop a current skill, and I’m here for it!
Getting to have an incredible photographer take time out of her CRAZY schedule to fit in this session meant the world to me. I have a hard time asking for help and being an obligation to others, so when I feel that weight of stretching someone too thin, I get anxious, but Mikayla was a serious gift for this entire session. I just have all the feels about it.
Sometimes I like to think back to 5, 10, 15, 20 years ago when people asked me what my ____year plan was. Admittedly I don’t think I would have said, “I want to run a sugar cookie business from my home and bring JOY to others through my edible artwork.” Okay, so the JOY part may always be at the center of all I do, but everything else has become a dream I didn’t know I had! Thank you for following along on this journey!
