“Each new year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year-the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.” – Peggy Toney Horton
From this quote, I formed my theme for the new year, 2017. Years ago I resolved to never create another failed resolution. Now I mark the befinning of the year with a theme, a general mindset to maintain focus on the things that matter most. Naturally, I plan to continue building my bakery, covering new and old territory. However, I desire to be a better human being this year more than a better business person. When we focus on humanity more than business, everyone wins. Of course, it matters that more individuals learn about my lemon bars, but there is a deeper calling on my life. A strong will that I cannot ignore yearns for me to pour into hearts in contrast to promoting a “hustle” (I’m being honest). Maybe I’ve matured. Maybe it’s a revelation. Know that you will begin to notice small yet significant changes to this website reflecting this year’s overarching theme: gratitude, give and grow.
