follow up on the bakery thing...

Friday, January 27, 2012


remember this post? a lot has changed since september.

sometimes when you open yourself up to new opportunities, other opportunities arise and slap you in the face. i stick to the theory that everything happens for a reason.

to start the bakery, a lot would be given up and a lot would be gained. i'm not ready to sacrifice the things that would be given up just yet.

sometimes i feel like i'm onto something with this photography thing. other days i feel like it's a pipe dream. but a little project is in the works that i'm excited to share with you soon.

i have very little patience, but these things take time. more time than i expected. not to mention, things change. this bakery thing may go down and it may not. either way, i'm ok with that.

also, how many times did i use the word THING in this post? a lot.

peace out until monday, guys.

First of all let me tell you that you look wonderful in this picture...and in love(with the photographer!)...
I am also in a stage of my life that I need to DECIDE some things with my family, and this envolves moving houses with my husband & children and make a new start in another town, job, schools, etc. I am making my decisions in a very quite,inner way....and like you without letting many people to knoe the details of these decisions.
Whatever you do, think also with your heart.Life is too short no to thing with our hearts.
nice talking to you now....NY-Greece!

This coould hav been written for me. I am in the middle of decision making and with each one made another can of worms and questions seems to open--and the worst bit we can't really tell anyone without them giving us their opinion, which we don't really want {I am a nice person really, I promise}.

And I am not patient either so am finding trying to wait and see so difficult--glad to know I am not the only one.

Spill the beans, sister.

PS- Awesome photo of you!

if/when you open a bakery, i am there on my next nyc trip!

Jennifer Rod said...

i really love this photo of you. and i will agree with you on this, things happen for a reason... so take it one step at a time.

ana {bluebirdkisses} said...

funny but I actually thought about opening up a bakery too...then I researched it ALOT and realized it wasn't such a great idea, for the same reasons you mentioned. So for now i'm focusing on my son, and my full time job...and the blog on the side :)

nicole said...

What a fantastic photo! Good luck with your latest venture! I always enjoy following along. (oh, and *so* many projects and pipe dreams dance around in my head; thanks for the inspiration.) xo.

Great post. As a new reader I didn't know of your plans for a bakery. That is my secret dream too - though, at 48 I know that it will never happen. BUT - I did start this blog to give a voice and platform to that passion (and it IS a passion), and I've never been happier. I truly admire how, at 27, you know to listen to that inner voice that is uniquely yours, and that you have a partner that is really a solid teammate in life. I look forward to seeing where you go next! And yes, I LOVE your writing!

Greetings from Texas! said...

you're definitely onto something with the photography thing. and that pic of you is super cute! keep up the good work sister! =)

EvaForeva said...

What a beautiful photo of you!
My mom always tells me to never regret anything. Just listen to your heart and do what you feel comfortable with. You are so talented, things will fall into place and you will just KNOW.

Whatever it is it sounds very exciting. I used to believe that pipe dreams were the only ones bc doesn't it always feel so daunting and scary to take on something where you have absolutely no idea what the result will be or where it will take you? And even if you achieve your dream or whatever it is, it's still scary not to know what comes next.

It was really great to meet you last night. Thank you again so much for making the trip all the way downtown in the pouring rain! And maybe we should get together to go on a photo walk or something. I think it would be fun. I love your photographs. have a great weekend!

Hannah said...

excited to hear about your new project!

Atsuko said...

Nice to hear new adventure. Especially first few sentences caught my eyes. I am also in the point where I should open to new opportunities. It is hard to step out of the comfort zone. But like you and others said, life is too short. Therefore, whether I may loose some money or grate patient, I should try. Thank you for the post. I hope your project will go well. Excited.
P.S. What a beautiful photo of you:)

First - beautiful picture

Second - lately I have learned to go with the flow and know that "Some Things Take Time" I too am impatient with things I want. (There is that damn things word!)

I am having those moments a lot lately. The waiting and knowing all will be how it's supposed to be.

Rebeka said...

Good luck figuring out what you want to do. I've been dealing with the same issue lately. Life is funny and hard sometimes. It's definitely difficult to take the leap and make sacrifices - part with stability and current happiness - for something that you can only hope will be better than what you have now.

I keep telling myself: you only live once. And asking myself if I'm going to regret not doing something/missing out on a opportunity that I don't take. It's just really hard to know, and really hard to make those decisions sometimes. But maybe I just have a hard time with change? I don't know. Ha!

Good luck deciding, or on your journey, or something!?

And P.S. your pictures are awesome :)

It sounds like you have some good options, but you're right about the patience. That's the hardest part about starting something new. Good luck with whatever you choose to do! Oh and your photography is ridiculously amazing. You're extremely talented!

Holy shit do things change. And the best thing is to be available to whatever's coming.

Ok, so I'm not sure one should admit this.. but I've come across your blog and read back through a whole year of posts. I love it! I love your writing, photos, dog, style and city. (And the no-poo thing won me over even more. I'm doing experiments in that area myself.)Hello from Australia.

Crystalin said...

I think you and photography make a great couple. Excited to hear about your little project!Hope you're having a lovely weekend :)

Best of luck with the project... looking forward to hearing about it! (& Smiling at the some opportunities slap you in the face, too true!!)

Lauren said...

If you listen to the Quakers, they have it right, I think when they talk about "way opening." So be patient and the way will open. Excited to hear about your project. Hopeful for you. Hopeful for all of us who struggle with self-doubt.

The Remarkable Redhead said...

I can sympathize, I feel like so many of my dreams are "pipe dreams" also, but I still try to take baby steps in their direction. Maybe we still have more growing to do before we're ready to conquer our dreams?

By the way, you look adorable in that coat : )
