Last weekend, one of my best friends drove down to visit, and we headed over to our old high school to attend its annual marching band competition. We arrived right as the first band spread out in formation on the football field to start their program, and a few field shows later, the MC announced a brief 30-minute break.
The two of us immediately stopped by the enclosed two-story grandstand to say hi to one of our now-retired band directors, who was judging the field shows. He smiled in surprise and asked each of us what we were up to. When I shared that I ran my own business, he prompted me for details, but he nearly rolled his eyes when I explained my blog…
…until I revealed that I had also written a cookbook and was fully independent as a result of their combined income. Astonishment filled his eyes, and he quickly swallowed the teasing joke on the tip of his tongue. When his wife walked over a minute later, he filled her in on my baking career, and she sweetly exclaimed, “Oh! Maybe we should try some of her treats for breakfast sometime!”
Seeing both of their reactions made me smile. I feel incredibly blessed that Amy’s Healthy Baking has been my full-time job for three years, and I’m so grateful for what you’ve done to help make that possible.
