I have a dream that might become reality soon. I wanted to share. I have always thought about owning my own bakery. Well, only in the last few weeks have I been actually thinking about it very seriously. like, actually doing it. I interned at a bakery in high school and so I know what goes on but other than that, I have no clue. This excites me though. Being scared is exciting to me. (I'm weird like that) As you all know, my mom passed away last year and I have been thinking a lot about what she would want me to do with the life insurance. I think first of all she would want me to pay my student loans. That's the first thing I'm going to do. But I've been thinking a lot about actually opening that bakery I always wanted. I mean, why not? For the first time in my life I am at a point where school is about to release me into the world after doing it my whole life and it is super scary (exciting!) and I can actually do whatever I want. I really want to do this. I think that it would make me so happy. I have no idea what kind of bakery or anything like that at this point. I'm going to do research for a long time about this. Locations, how to actually run a business, etc. I think my mom would be a-okay with this idea and I really, really want to do this. I have so many wonderful people in life that are so supportive of me and the few I have told were excited about this idea. I'll let you guys know in the coming months how planning is going and everything. I cannot wait! I'm also going to take the new Dream Job e-course over at A Beautiful Mess  to get a feel for owning a small business from one of my heroes, Elsie at Red Velvet. She is doing what she loves as her job! She is such an inspiration and she makes me think I can actually do this!

Thanks for listening and if anyone has any feedback or suggestions (anything!!) please, leave me a comment!
