Schools let out for the summer last week in my hometown, as my mom learned when she bumped into a big party of celebrating teenagers at the pool while trying to swim her typical afternoon laps. After hearing the news, I started thinking about my own path since high school graduation.
Entered college as a nutrition major… Finished four years later with an organic chemistry degree instead… Realized my heart loved baking more than studying medicines with anticancer potential… Switched to full-time blogging… Wrote a cookbook… Went on TV… Twice…
Although I never would’ve guessed as a high school senior that I’d start a business and make a career out of baking, I feel so grateful every day that this is my job—and you played a part in that!
By browsing through my recipes and sharing my website with your family and friends… By trying my recipes and leaving comments on my blog telling me how much you loved them… By posting pictures of your treats on Facebook and Instagram to share with me…
Those thoughtful actions, no matter how small, have added up and helped me turn Amy’s Healthy Baking into my full-time job and income source. I’m incredibly grateful for that!
So to say thank you, I’m putting the spotlight back on you today! Here are some of the recipes that you’ve tried and pictures that you’ve shared on Instagram. I truly appreciate each and every time you do that; it really means the world to me! ♡
And if you’re interested in starting a blog too, I have a super easy step-by-step guide on how you can start your own blog here. It takes less than 30 minutes!
