Cookies have been good to us!

Cookies have been good to us. After 3 years baking, decorating, adjusting, tweaking, learning, not sleeping, and learning how to work together, Zach and I are finally in a groove. This summer we are skipping summer school and spending time with each other and our girls. This is what dreams are made of, right?

About 6 months ago, we were finally in a good enough place to feel comfortable with saying goodbye to my last PRN gig as a speech language pathologist. Zach also waved a slow goodbye to his wrestling and track practice days. We have enjoyed a few more hours a week to eat dinner together, work on things around the house, and play Uno with the girls.

We now have a work schedule for the bakery each week that doesn't cut into our daylight time near as much. We know what we can handle and what we can't (usually). I review orders and create a baking list for Zach each Sunday and he bakes on Monday and Tuesday evenings. I take Mondays off and decorate Tuesday through Friday. All custom order pickups are scheduled on Friday evenings, which leaves our weekends for family and rest unless I'm teaching a class or holding a pop-up sale.
