I’m back

Wow.  I can’t believe it’s been this long since my last post.  A LOT has happened since then.  Let me get you updated.  At last post, I was in the process of opening my own vegan bakery!!  This was a dream I had had for a long time and I was finally making it come true.  I found a nice little spot for it and was refining the recipes of all the delicious baked goods I’d have there.  I even wanted to do some creamy soft serve ice cream there.  It was going to be fantastic!  Unfortunately, during the process I was realizing just how much was going to have to go into the space and how this passion for baking was completely dissolving into a sort of nuisance.  I’ve always heard of people who turn their passion into their job and then end up hating this passion.  I was beginning to see how this can be.  I decided to let the dream go (or at least put it back on the back burner again) and I got a job back in the corporate world.  I don’t regret any of this, though.  I have a nice job now working normal hours and have more time to spend volunteering with animals (which I absolutely love!).  This is something I would not have been able to do as a bakery owner – or at least not until the bakery was so successful that I wouldn’t have to be there all the time.  Would its great success have happened?  Maybe. For now, I love supporting other vegan businesses out there who did follow through on their dreams.  It takes a lot to take that risk and I have so much more respect for these people than I did at the beginning of this journey.

I also spent most of this time contemplating whether to continue this blog.  A part of me thinks it’s a lot of work taking, editing, and organizing pictures and then writing things about them on a consistent basis – I mean, are people even reading blogs anymore?  But then a part of me thinks that I want to get information out there that may not already be out there – promoting those vegan dreamers and their products.  So I sided with the dreamers.  I hope you will continue this journey with me and check back for upcoming posts about all the fabulous things that exist in this world.
