A lovely hairy frosted vanilla buttercream pup cake made for my old high school friend Sandeep’s awesome mom’s birthday! I’ve had the pleasure of making cakes for his wedding day, and many other birthdays since… so nice to catch up with him every once in a while through the cake biz.
And… it’s hard to believe but next year it will be our TWENTY YEAR HIGH SCHOOL REUNION. Yep, that’s right… I’m no spring chicken! And I’m feeling the age HARD today because I went to “boot camp” fitness class yesterday with my pal Helen and am paying the pain price now! Been trying to ease back into a fitness routine, but maybe doing a super hard class for my first fitness class since having a kid wasn’t the coolest idea ever. Oops.
But seriously, twenty years almost since I’ved graduated high school?? That’s nuts. Time keeps rolling by like nobody’s business. All one really do is try and enjoy every day and plan for some fun things to do in the future, too. When you’re young you never imagine that you’ll ever be 20, 30, 40 years old… but then BAMMM it kind of happens! I remember my dear friend Tara showing me this list of “rules for living” probably a decade ago… and I came across it again recently and it felt pertinent. So… Here it is! Don’t kill me for being a nerd!!
