I've already mentioned here and there how I've made several goals for myself in 2016. I don't want to say resolutions because that's honestly NOT what they are; these are things that I want to really challenge myself with. One of my goals is simply putting myself out there.
Two weeks ago a woman posted on a local Facebook group that she was in desperate need of cookies for a baby shower. At first I didn't think my cookies would be what she was looking for as she'd used professional bakeries prior to this but then I thought what the heck - I may as well try! So I messaged her and said I'd love to help if I could!
It's been two weeks...Seventeen DOZEN cookies, over sixteen "customers" and three more orders in the works for next week.
I'm still in absolute shock that my cookies are not only loved by others but that complete strangers are now sending me messages asking for personalized orders! This busyness couldn't have come at a better time for me personally - channeling my energy into something positive for others and opening my eyes to a new world of mothers has given me a great deal of satisfaction and confidence.
There's nothing I love more than sharing my passion and joy for baking with others. In case you're wondering, my secret ingredient is...love.
