Paulo Coelho may have said it best: “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it is lethal.”
I kept hearing other people say that I was following my passion. Yet I was holding back, afraid to take that next step to realize my own future. The fear of waking up in 10 years and feeling like I haven't reached my potential was at war with my fear of not being able to pay my bills. That push and pull was paralyzing me. And then almost overnight I realized that the only way I'd ever do it is to stop dreaming and start doing. I decided that instead of calling my bakery my side hustle, I'd just hustle harder and make it my livelihood.
So this is the scariest and most vulnerable post of mine yet, and somehow putting it all out there has brought me comfort and peace. I have felt the unwavering support of Nashville, and I'm beyond grateful. I'm looking forward to sharing my love for baking and well thought out food with the incredible Nashville community!
And because nobody likes a bakery blog post without that food porn, here you go. Warning: Shameless plug & mouthwatering picture ahead.
