Pay It Forward

This past Saturday on our way to the race track, my son and I stopped at our local Starbucks as we always do. When we reached the cashier window the barista informed us the car ahead of us paid our order. First thought that ran through my head was "do I know them?" No, I did not know them. The barista further explained that someone did the same for them and he wanted to extend that to someone else. This is something I have read about but never seen or been a part of. I was so thrilled with the kind gesture I passed it along and paid for the car behind us.

I am committed to do the same thing monthly. Maybe if someone did something nice for someone else for no reason, that will make that day better for someone. Who knows, maybe we can keep that going all day.

Its been awhile

With the blessing of my niece's birth in July (4 weeks early), her being in the hospital twice since her birth (the most recent this past week with a 8 day stay), school ending for my husband and getting ready to start again in a week or so, my son going back to school, business and just every day life, I have not found much time to stop in and update.

I took over my husbands laptop this past week and a half so I can get some work done. Without it I would have had to spend less time at the hospital with my brother and sister-in-law.

With the baby shower last month and another coming in November, I forgot how much I love making certain gifts and crafts. I love making diaper cakes. There is just something special about them. I am going to start making them for local sales. I am not interested at this time in online sales. With local sales I can get a good sense of the shower theme and the guest of honor. Something that is very important to me and why each cake is custom and unique. I may venture to smaller cakes but we will see. I have a few other items I love to make for baby showers. How knows, maybe I have the start to a special local boutique.
