So I wanted to bake cookies this year. It has been years since I made cookies to share them with family and friends for the holidays. I thought this year enough with the excuses and just do it. I did and here they are.

Well here are some lessons I learned while baking. I do enjoy baking, but wow three different kids of cookies in one day! I have a new admiration for all the bakers who prepare all the goodies for dessert stations and bakeries and you name it. I mean all the work that goes in to making each one look so delightfully perfect is awesome. But then again they probably had help. I did put on the holiday music. Then switched the station to a song that really lifted my spirits: Roar by Katie Perry. Baking is good for the heart, of course when eaten responsibly.  It felt good to know that others enjoyed what I made with my own two hands. I enjoy sharing. It is amazing when we take what we love and share it with others. Not that I am giving myself this much credit but O lpved the way it makes me feel. I learned that no two bakers are the same. Both of them can bake the same type of cookie but it just will not taste the same. All three bakers have been baking for years and deliciousness takes much practice, right. I overheard a lady talk about making tamales for the first time. I guess she made a mistake because she said, “I tried and now I know what I did wrong for next time.” Yes my cookies were good but not like the ones I had before.  This is a great lesson that we are all unique and never compare.  I also thought about the America’s baking competition or even the Master Chef show. I got tired and turned the kitchen into a mess trying to bake my cookies. I can’t imagine doing it timed and under pressure. All those bakers and cooks are awesome! I believe in life there are bakers and there are those who love to eat them. Bakers love to bake and share with others. Those who love to eat just love the delicious sweetness that reminds them of home, of childhood, the holidays or you name it. Life needs bakers and those who love to eat the baked goods. Hey I think I have lots of ideas for new typography are! I also love my family and and happy with all the wonderful that is yet to come.
