I wanted to take a moment to post one final message here….As I thought I could do it yesterday and didn’t have the heart to make it through all that I wanted to say!
I have been watching as so many of you have jumped over and liked the new pages I am managing…I’ve received the emails saying that you have subscribed to the new blog I am running…and I’ve been humbled by your support and kind words!
Let me take you on a quick journey as I bring a close to this chapter: I started this page shortly after my husband and I decided that staying at home with the children would greatly benefit our family. I left the corporate world and filled my days with teaching our children, housework, and any other typical mom/wife duty you can think of.
I quickly found that I needed an outlet! (understatement of the year). After some soul searching and prayers, I decided to embark on the world of food blogging. I had a nice camera, I had been cooking for years and years and loved inventing recipes, and I LOVE TO TALK!!! This was gonna be EASY!
As with all things worth having in life…SOOOOO NOT EASY!!! I started a facebook page and began talking…and talking…and talking. For months, nobody talked backed. Back in those days, I thought my photos were pretty rad ~ They were so not rad! Food should never look that color in a photo
I went to work refining my skills and just kept on talking. I vowed to stay ME through this whole endeavor, and I’m proud to say I did just that! What you have seen over the past few years is ME!
I’m passionate about food, I love my family, and I have a ridiculous sense of humor.
What I never expected was the result….I never expected my meals to end up on other people’s holiday tables. I never imagined that I would receive emails asking for help in creating a cake for someone’s most favorite grandpas 70th birthday. I never dreamed that my work would flow into the houses of children who got to create my tin can swirl cakes and that I would receive photos of those precious babes with their creations.
(dang tears again)
The water was cold that first year, however over time, you ALL helped to create the warm and inviting place that became MMC. The nickname so many of you used and that I will never forget.
I want each of you to know the impact that you’ve had on my life…the inspiration you have given me through the tough times. This is why it humbles me and brings me to tears when I see your faces on my new path! I never envisioned this would turn into employment for me and the water is once again cold.
With my head held high, with tremendous amounts of love and respect…I post this farewell to MMC and welcome in new beginnings.
