Late one morning last weekend as I returned from a walk around my parents’ neighborhood, the man who lives up the street spotted me and called out a friendly hello. “I haven’t seen you for a long time!” he exclaimed, and we began chatting.
I asked about his kids, the older of which was the same year as me in school, and he shared a little about their tech industry jobs and how he and his wife drove down to Southern California quite a few times during the year to visit both sons. I wouldn’t mind moving there someday myself—their weather is basically beautiful all year round!
In return, he inquired about me and my job, and I responded that I was self-employed and founded my own small business. When he prompted me for details, I explained, “I run a food blog, so I create and test new recipes of my own, take pictures of them, and publish everything on my website for anyone to make.”
“Wow, that’s really neat!” he replied.
It definitely is… And YOU have made this dream job of mine a reality!
Through visiting my blog and browsing my recipes… Through saving them to Pinterest and printing them out to try… Through sharing those homemade treats with your family and friends… Through directing them to my blog and giving them the recipe links when they ask where you found them… Through leaving sweet comments here and on Facebook… Through taking pictures of the recipes you make and sharing them on Instagram…
While those actions may sound small and insignificant, they all add up and have enabled me to turn Amy’s Healthy Baking into my full-time job. I’m incredibly grateful for what you’ve done for me!
So to say thank you, I’m putting the spotlight back on you today! Here are some of the recipes that you’ve baked 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! ♥
