We will be teaching our first class in our Spring line up this evening. It is a special breakfast and brunch class. We are going to do recipes that would be great for this weekend. I think serving brunch is a great way to entertain...many dishes are make ahead so it's easier on you. Brunch is served late morning, so you have the rest of the day for other commitments ( most people need to be many places on a holiday) and you can be very creative....no rules really! I'm having a little trouble getting the table centerpiece worked out in my head. I can't make up my mind if I want "Spring Garden" or all out Easter...I like pressure, it's when I do my best creating. So anyway this class should be fun, they always are, and after the weather we have had the last couple of days...fun would be awesome!Then, after tonight, all I'll have time to think about is getting all of my orders done on time! ( and somewhere in there I need to figure out what I am making for Easter dinner and what to do about my Grandsons first Easter basket!...traditions are very important to me...even if he is only 6 weeks old !) ....like I said, I like pressure! Good thing. Right???

I have a great job. I make people happy. Sometimes they come in to escape, unwind. Sometimes they come in to catch up with a friend. Sometimes we are part of a big celebration...babies, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, we even had a proposal once! Sometimes I help make Holidays special...which is great! It's kind of funny to think that the desserts I'm making will come out at the end of the Holiday meal...like a Norman Rockwell painting...( well...in MY mind that's what I see) and everyone will be happy! I'm telling you all of this, not to sound full of myself,or make you jealous, or make you dislike YOUR job! I'm telling you all of this because it is Easter week and I have a CRAZY one in front of me! I thought I could go back and read this once or twice this week ... and that might help!!! or not...we'll see! Hope your Easter week is full of SWEET Memories......and mine is a piece of cake!!!

So, it's raining on a Monday, my only day off, again... so I thought I'd teach myself something new on the computer....and here I am. I am hoping this blog will give me a fun, new way to stay in touch with our customers at Sweet Memories and maybe talk to some other people who create and work for themselves...we will see! I'm still learning to navigate through all of this... it should be interesting because it's all new to me!!!
