We don’t always know what form our luck will take. Sometimes it’s a penny, sometimes it’s a four-leaf clover, and sometimes it’s one extra day with our loved ones.
Earlier this past week, my family and I flew down to San Diego for an unplanned visit. We spent the past four days in the hospital, sitting around Grandpa’s bed while he slept, reminiscing and sharing as many stories as we could recall about him as we said our final good-byes.
As I reflected on the past, I realized that I inherited many of his traits—his perfectionism, willpower, dedication, slight stubborn streak, attention to detail, and love of food—that helped me turn Amy’s Healthy Baking from a hobby into my full-time job and income source. He was always so proud of my blog and cookbook, telling all of his friends about my career every chance he had, and I feel so blessed to have been his granddaughter.
So this week’s Sunday Spotlight is in honor of Grandpa. I’m sharing some of my recipes that you’ve made and posted pictures of on Facebook and Instagram—and many of these treats are favorites of his! I feel truly grateful each and every time you share your pictures; it really means the world to me.
I will be taking this next week off from posting new recipes to spend time with my family. I’ll respond to your sweet comments and emails as soon as I can. I greatly appreciate your patience, love, and understanding during this time.
I can’t wait to see what you try next! ♥
