Something Different

I love being a teacher. It is one of the things that brings me so much joy. But........lately I have been wondering what I would do if I was not a teacher.
I think I would be a chef. More specifically, a natural foods pastry specialist!
I think it would be so much fun to open up a small pastry shop filled with foods that taste great, yet are not terrible to eat.
It would be a small shop right off a downtown street. There would be small bistro tables out front with umbrellas to block the sun in the summer, and twinkle lights hanging down to set the mood at night. The smell of sugar would be intoxicating as you open the door. The walls would be pink and black, to give the effect of sweetness with a little naughtiness.
The cabinets would be filled with cakes, pies, muffins, and all types of sweet treats. There would be gluten free selections, vegan selections, and everything in between.
We would serve coffee from around the world that would transport you with each sip.
We would host a girls party once a month for the women in town to come socialize and meet others.
We would cater your parties and events with class and flair.
We would make wedding cakes to melt in your mouth, while they reach as high as the heavens.

Just a fantasy and dream to share.
Do yall have a dream of doing something else? Please share I would love to know!

before I forget... I highly recommend reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. It is a GREAT book to get you started. I also loved Harvest for Hope by Jane Goodall (I think that is how you spell it). She wrote about a farmer that lives in Washington. check this out - the VERY next day I went to a farmers market and met that farmer. That was last summer. Crazy. We ended up visiting his farm at the end of last summer.

I LOVE your dream! I don't envision myself always doing pt and such. I love so many things.

my daughters both played soccer this morning in the pouring rain. love them. Tallie took a pretty good hit - went down hard. She started crying. Came off the field for the first time all season for all of 5 minutes and right back in she went. I love her. xoxo enjoy the rest of your day.
