Contemplating change…

This isn’t a food post. No pictures of delicious cookies, savory dinners or family friendly side-dishes. Nope. It’s just me, sitting at my computer, having a cup of coffee and contemplating the future…

Here we are a full month and a week into 2013. So far, it’s been a delicious year. I’ve gone on two great food-filled walking tours. I’ve taken a class or two. I was “recognized” for the first time at a demo recently. That was awesome!! I’ve met a lot of new friends on Facebook and Pintrest. I’m learning about Google +, YouTube and Instagram! There are exciting things on the horizon! I can’t wait to see how they unfold! Mostly, I’ve been happily cooking, baking and blogging away in my little kitchen.

In the next few months though, my cooking and baking times may not be as plentiful. We have a mortgage that needs to be paid, and sadly, it requires more than cupcakes or perfectly steamed clams as currency. Too bad, right? 🙂 So, I’m going back to work. Starting Monday, I’ll be “Miss Sara” for a group of adorable 4 year olds at a local Pre-School.

I’m excited and sad at the same time. I’m excited because I enjoy working with kids! I get to wear jeans every day, my commute is less than 10 minutes and I’ll be working with people I love. Plus, I’ll have a whole new group of taste testers for all my recipes! 🙂

I’m sad because I loved, loved, LOVED being home the last few months. I wanted to see what would happen if I were able to go back to school and put 40+ hours a week into blogging! Who knows! Maybe someday that will happen. This girl has BIG DREAMS and I’m not waiting around for them any more. We’re going to go out and MAKE THEM HAPPEN! Well, after school is over for the day we’ll make them happen. Heehee!

Please don’t give up on me if some posts are left percolating on the back burner and my fingers are occasionally coated in washable paint instead of bread dough! Without all of you, I wouldn’t be able to do ANY of this and like I said before, I’m not giving up! Stick with me and I’ll find a happy balance between paying the bills and sharing great food with you! We’ll reach the stars together, wait and see!

    Oh those darn bills! They always ruin everything! I wish you well in your new job and trying to figure out the balance you need to have everything you want! 🙂

  4. Will miss hearing from you. Teaching children is a very high calling, God Bless You !!

  5. Everyday…life gives us new beginnings..forks in the road to ponder. You will be just fine and “us” Facebook fans will treasure your time and compassion when you have time to share what’s in the kitchen…Hugs!

  6. I’m so equally happy and sad right now, I simply don’t know what to do with myself! I need a good cry… happy tears, sad tears… NO! I need bacon! No… not bacon. I need SARA hugs! THAT’S IT! That’s what I need. ❤

    I'm SO SO happy for you! To be able to do what you love is such a wonderful feeling! I wish you the very very best and I DO expect some updates on how it's going, sweet Sara! I love you!

    • Don’t be sad Becca! I will still be cooking and baking up a storm!! You’re not getting rid of me THAT easily! Sheesh!! 😉 I love you too silly friend!

  7. Best of luck in your endeavors–both in the classroom and in the kitchen.
