Because my parents recently renovated their kitchen, I often use its new spacious layout to film the recipe videos I publish here on Amy’s Healthy Baking. (Psst… Have you subscribed to my YouTube channel yet?? If you subscribe, you’ll be the first to see every new video I post!)
This past week, I set up my special video lights in their kitchen to prepare for another round of filming, and that fell on the same day my mom scheduled a plumber to fix the shower in their spare bathroom. While rummaging around my prop stash in the adjacent room to pick out the perfect napkin and plate for my next video, I overheard a bit of the plumber’s conversation with my mom.
“Are you into photography?” he politely asked, apparently gesturing to the lights.
“No, they’re my daughter’s,” Mom replied. “She owns her own business, and food photography is a huge component of it.”
I smiled to myself, detecting a faint note of pride in Mom’s voice. I feel so lucky that she and my dad (and my entire family!) all supported my decision to launch my own business and make Amy’s Healthy Baking my full-time job.
And you made that possible.
Yes, YOU! ♥
By reading my blog and browsing through my recipes… By printing them out and saving them on Pinterest… By making those recipes and giving the treats to your family and friends… By sharing my blog links when they asked where you found the recipes… By leaving me sweet comments about those recipes here and on Facebook… By taking pictures of your treats and sharing them with me on Instagram…
While those actions sound really small and insignificant, they all add up—and they’re exactly what have allowed 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 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! ♥
