As a senior in high school, I cut a large piece of white butcher paper from an oversized roll in our closet, almost as tall as my bedroom door, and pulled out a set of brightly colored markers to create a lifelong “To Do” list, my pseudo bucket list. I filled the top half with an eclectic assortment of items: finish my MLB tour with Dad, visit Greece and Italy, walk across the Golden Gate bridge, ride the spiral escalators at the Westfield Shopping Center in San Francisco, work in a bakery… Plus many more.
The list still hangs on the back of my childhood bedroom door, and I often smile when I see it. Although I never worked in a true professional bakery, the kind that sells impressive multi-tiered cakes adorned with perfectly piped buttercream roses… I’m always amazed that my entire income now comes from baking and this blog.
And YOU helped make that possible! ♥
By browsing through my recipes and signing up for my emails… By saving the links to those recipes on Pinterest and Facebook… By trying those recipes and giving the treats to your family and friends… By take pictures of your sweets to share with me on Instagram…
All of those small actions have added up and allowed me to turn Amy’s Healthy Baking from a part-time hobby into my full-time job. I’m incredibly grateful for that!
