Don't Worry, I'm Still Alive

Hello friends!

For those of you on the east coast I hope you made it through Hurricane Sandy safely and without too much trouble!  For those of you that have been around you know that I am from Denver, but would you believe that Hurricane Sandy made a mess of my life as well?  Not in a physical way but I do work on a TV show about hurricanes, so I've been working like mad for the past week and a half trying to get everything sorted out with Sandy.

So I'm still alive, I'm exhausted but I am doing just fine.  There has been a lot on my mind as of recently and I just keep fighting it, I don't want it to be true, I want to take the easy way out, be happy now and be done with it.  Have any of you ever felt that same way?

It's like, God put me at the beginning of this path and told me to walk this way, but there are all of these other, prettier paths that I would love to be walking down right now, paths that would give me comfort not and likely heartbreak later, paths that would cuddle me and eventually push me away.  But this path, the one that God told me to walk down, it's kind of lonely, it's not the prettiest and it's not always very comfortable.  It's hard, it's like the climbing the side of a mountain having no idea where the top is and being consistently tempted by the paths leading downhill.  I'm doing my best to stick to the "straight and narrow" knowing that in the end it will be the best.

In other news!  I've been baking, journaling, Smashing and what not.  Check out my trio of Rice Krispie Treats!

We have Oreo, Candy Corn and Crunch Berry!  I'm pretty excited about it to be honest, but there's a chance that these will all end up being a big pile of marshmallow and cereal, I didn't really think that through when I just piled them all on top of each other!  We'll see if we can get them apart tonight!

I don't think there's much else to share right now.  Sorry that I left you hanging out here all on your own, hope you didn't miss me too much.  It feels good to be back, better than expected actually!  I'm not going to make any promises just yet on how often I'll be around, I just have to go with the flow and figure that out, but thanks for being loyal and sticking around.  I've missed you!

This is Not a Recipe

So it's been dark here, and it's been dark here for a while and my first instinct is to apologize for that, but you know, that's what I needed.  I know it's silly, but I just needed some time to be away from the blog, to make sure that this was what I really wanted.

It's lovely that one of my blogger friends asked me to write a guest post for her lovely blog.  It made me remember how fun this can be if I let it, how imperfect of a science this is, because to be honest I have no idea what I'm doing.  But not knowing what you're doing can be good too, it's about learning and developing, not about being perfect.

So, there may be some changes around here, I'm still not certain how often you'll see me around here.  I'm not sure what the weekly schedule will look like.  There might be less recipes and more thoughts, or maybe just a wider variety of recipes, because you see I've learned that I'm awesome at making WAY more than just cupcakes.

I've learned that I'm more than just a baker, it's so easy to define myself as such, because I bake for my friends so often, but to be honest they love me even when I don't, it's on me to think otherwise.

I'm sorry that this post doesn't have any pretty pictures, or anything fun to take away from it, but I'm happy to be back, it feels nice to write and to chat with you all.  Thanks for reading my rambling.  See you around soon!
