When I started this blog MANY years ago I wanted to use it both personally and for business. I thought it was so important for my clients to truly know my family and I. Most of my clients over the past 10 years have become close friends who follow along on this journey of life through my Facebook. But some of you are either new clients or just coming to check out my website. If this is your first visit, hello! I am so passionate about my business and my family. It is so hard to believe I have been in this business for 10 years now! My daughter is now 15 and we have another girl on the way. I joke and say God must have one huge sense of humor bringing me another girl after so many years. 12 years ago my daughter was a tiny 3 year old and we first met when I was her preschool teacher. I knew I loved her from the very first day I met her! A few months later I became her mom. For years I couldn’t understand why God wouldn’t bring us another child so she could have a sibling to grow up with. I prayed, cried, and begged to be given the chance to carry a baby and complete our family. God had other plans with my life that now I completely understand! Through those years I watched my daughter grow into a beautiful young woman. Sometimes it is hard to explain the love I have for her. There are times people tell me that I will never understand until I have my own. Those people are absolutely crazy! Our little Zoey has been baking for 7 months now and the love I share for them is the exact same. I explained it last week as this, “Zoey was given to me from God. I didn’t fight for her, shed 291293 tears over or for her, and I haven’t been given 13 years with her.” Adoption doesn’t make anyone love less. I truly know I have the exact two Blessings that were made just for me. Those 13 years I was given the chance to grow my business into what it is today and still spend time running Olivia around traveling with soccer. I was able to focus just on her. I’m just so thankful that this business has given me a chance to be with my girls now and still do what I love every single day! I’m looking forward to another busy year of business and figuring out this new mom thing. It will be one busy year that is for sure. Can’t wait to meet your family and hear all about your story.
