I haven't baked or decorated a cake in months. I haven't posted a blog update in months. My only way of posting an update was through my smart phone or iPad mini and I really can't STAND typing a lot on those things. I'm a good old-fashioned keyboard lover. So guess what, y'all? I got a keyboard! It's literally the size of my hand but it allows me to vent to you all without using a touchscreen to type, so YAY! Now I just have to deal with my mid 20's crisis. I'm trying to be a grown-up and work to make a living but I also need to finish getting my degree and I really don't want to go back to school. What do I want to do, you ask? I WANT to bake and decorate cakes and sell my goods (no, not THOSE goods, jeez) and open a storefront, but I can't. The cottage food laws are different in Mobile than they are in Mississipi. It's so much more strict, that it makes it nearly impossible to get yourself out there, and even IF you are able to get out there, you're still only allowed to sell your goods at state sanctioned farmers markets.
So I'm at a crossroads. Either way I will be getting my degree, but will I continue as a baker/cake decorator or will I give up and pursue an actual career? All I know for sure is what I love to do, and that I have to remember to keep my hopes up.
Also I made these.

Be jealous. And remember, you are loved.
