Ahhhh Fridays - hustle day. This is the day when everything has to come together and all of the weekends cakes must be decorated. I have red gumpaste roses to finish for a wedding tomorrow, and jewels to make for a jewelry box cake.

Things have slowed down quite a bit as they usually do this time of year. Everyone is focusing on Thanksgiving and Christmas and not planning as many weddings. I use this time to do all of the many things that I neglect during the busy wedding season. Right now I'm re-doing my website and almost have that completed. I just have a few more gallery pages to get done, hopefully I'll finish that up before Thanksgiving.

We're not hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year, so I don't have to worry about all of the shopping, cleaning and cooking that goes along with that. I'll miss it tho. We're going to my in-laws so I know that is going to be fabulous! My mother in law, Sheilia, always makes that green jello salad that my Mama use to make - I LOVE that, but I never make it because Greg doesn't like it. WOO HOO - I get to eat lime jello salad in a couple of days *doing happy dance*.

I'l looking forward to the black Friday sales next week. I've got to have an MP3 Player. It's weird.....I didn't care about them for the longest time then BAM! I've GOT to have an MP3 player. So - hoping for good sales on those next week.

It's hard to believe that we're putting up the Christmas tree in a week. Time sure does fly when you're busy. I don't care for the cold, but *shrug* it'll be summer soon! :)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I just have to say that I'm thankful for my wonderful husband, my family and friends, my home and my pets. I'm thankful for every beautiful couple who trusted me with the cake for their special day and every one else who allowed me to make a cake for their special event. I'm thankful for my health and that I was born in the greatest country in the world. God bless America!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Stay safe!

Catching up

It looks like it's been 4 years since I established this blog and made my first entry. Well - it's been a busy 4 years. LOL! We have been making a lot of cakes and meeting so many beautiful brides - many of whom keep in touch even after several years which is really a blessing for me. We've met lots of other friends via cake plus met so many of the wonderful wonderful wedding vendors in the area. We are so blessed in the Lynchburg area to have some really great venues, caterers, photographers, florists, bridal shops and other vendors whom are not only very reputable and skilled in their areas of expertise, but they are great people whom I'm thrilled to call friends.

I'll try to keep up with this blog a little better and share more of my work with any of you who might be interested. Thanks so much for visiting!
