Well, for those that know me well, it is no secret that I have always wanted a tattoo. I don't know why. Just something inside of me. But I didn't just want to get any old tattoo. I wanted it to have meaning. I knew someday that it would come to me. And it did.
26.2. Those are numbers that mean something to me. It is the number of miles in a marathon, which I have now 'run' two of. (The word 'run' being used lightly here....). But on Monday, when I went for my tattoo, it was 26 years 2 months from the day we got married - a marriage marathon. All done with my wonderful husband and best friend and I thank him for running beside me all of those miles and all of these years. I don't plan on 'running' any more marathons with my feet, but am hoping for at least one more 'marriage marathon'!!!
K is in the process of starting a baking business. "As You Wish" custom cakes, pastries etc... She's doing a lot of baking and is starting to get orders, which is exciting. She got her first cake order for a friend's adult son who is a huge Harry Potter fan. This is what she came up with... The Sorting Hat. It turned out amazing.
I thought I would share just a few of the other 'samples' that she has been creating as she learns the ins and outs of fondant; frosting; flowers etc..
Marbled with white roses.
Sunflower with large chocolate chips for seeds.... Mmmmmm...
Little baby cakes for fun.
Whimsical cupcakes. The turtle was my favorite. But the Prince Charming frog had his appeal! (Oh, and the cow and pig had awful cute backsides!!!)
I even got to create my own plate of fun cupcakes!!! It's like being a kid again playing with playdough!!!! (Only you get to EAT it!!) Yum!
Well, K and I are off to St. Louis to visit friends. While there, K is also going to be taking a class at the Viking Cooking School. Stay tuned......
Until Next Time.....
