A Dream

No, not the kind you have at night.  The kind of things you hope for and wonder if you could ever make happen.The kind of thing the practical side of you, the side that has bills to pay, responsibilities, and a masters degree, tells you are silly and not going to pay the mortgage.

You may have realized by now that I love baking.  It's one of my favorite things.  What, you say it's your birthday?!  Can I bake you cupcakes for whatever celebration you're having?  Or can I bring a pie for you to take to your next holiday celebration?  Have you had my butterscotch brownies?  No?!  Let me make you some!

So, in my silly little dream I want to have a little tiny bakery.  And just do cupcakes.  And pies, but just cream pies.  And brownies.  And anything else that sounds good at the moment.  Never full sized cakes.  Ain't nobody got time for that.

And there's a tiny little building in the town where I live that would be perfect.  It's adorable.  The building can't be more than 10x10.  I would paint the building pink.  A pretty cheery, bright pink.  With the palest of pink trim and door.  And I would have a cute little easel sign outside.  And because I'm ridiculous, it would look kind of like this.

Except it would have a picture of one of my actual cupcakes.  Not just one I found by doing a Google image search for a pink cupcake...

And I would name my sweet treats after people I know.  What kind of treat would you want named after you?  Anybody else have a wild dream of what they want to be when they grow up?


  1. I love this dream!!! I made cupcakes for Archer's birthday party last month and they were my first fancy cupcakes ever!!! I was super proud of myself and I would totally make cupcakes for any reason now!

    1. Right?! It's totally addicting! I super love making cupcakes.

  2. Oh my word...I know I didn't just read this post. SATURDAY NIGHT (after baking a go-zillion cupcakes, for the yes the 3rd time this week) I WAS SITTING ON THE COUCH AND I SAID TO MY HUSBAND, " I THINK I WILL QUIT MY JOB AND JUST BAKE CUPCAKES FOR A LIVING!". Sorry, I got a little carried away there for a minute. I thought I saw someone learking outside my window this weekend...MARY? (LOL!)
