6:25

So Rachel Heckmann makes me smile. I will never forget her birthday because when we were roommates in college she would let everybody know when it was 6:25 am or pm. And yell something like “bestt daaay everrrrrrrrr”
She started her own business, she is talented and dreaming big,  check out her website http://rachelallene.com
Love you Rachel!

Stephanie is 25! Whoa!
We shared a room for 3 years in college and yeah… we are still friends. I was so thankful to be with her on your 25th birthday. I love this picture. That’s a lemon pound cake with a lot candles. She is silly, creative and honest!

the soon-to-be Mestita’s

Nicole Reed and Steve Mestita are wonderful. I greatly enjoy the time I can spend with them. I didn’t know Nicole this time last year we are newly acquainted-I think we can both agree it feels like we have known each other longer. One of the things we like to joke about is beans. Bean jokes or eating beans. Anyways, I wanted to take a minute to say congrats Steve and Nicole, I am filled with excitement and hope as I wonder what is ahead in your journey together. 

What a gift it is to be apart of this celebration and bringing together of you too. It was fun sitting with Steve and Nicole for there tasting- lots of laughter, jokes and smiling ­čÖé and also thanks for being supportive and encouraging as I explore and learn baking etc.

They tried 4 flavors 

Lemon Rosemary, chocolate, vanilla with coconut and wine cake. 

Lemon Rosemary for the cutting cake and chocolate cupcakes with buttercream! August 21!!

Last month Matt and Emma got engaged. It was with much expectentience, anticipation and excitement. Matt planned a surprise party at her parents which she was very surprised. I made a 6 layer chocolate cake. The days following her engagement Emma was glowing and SO happy. I described it like a little bunny hoppying around ­čÖé congrats!
