JUNE? Really, I haven’t posted since JUNE? I am SUCH a doof, especially after writing that I would do better…about writing….(hangs head in shame, wearing sign around neck, large letters…in bold…”DOOF“)!
The title really does indicate why I haven’t written…Life IS Good…but soooo busy lately.
I received a message last night, on the BellaDaddy.com Facebook Page . A rather exciting, but nonetheless, confidential message (for now – stay tuned). But, it made me realize I hadn’t been here in months (JUNE, REALLY?!)
Life Is good. It comes from a friend, a dear friend, Mattie. She’d had it for the whole world to see, emblazoned on the tire cover of her car. (Sadly, it has been stolen a few times that I know of…perhaps the person, or persons, could not find that inspiration, and decided stealing it was a quick fix)… Mattie is truly and inspiration for our family, and anytime I see, proclaim or use the “Life is Good” moniker, I think of her. A truly passionate person, a gifted parent and a super amazing outlook on life. I am truly humbled by her…
So, busy? YEAH BABY, we are SOOOO busy! Bella has been thriving in school…seriously pursuing her Karate aspirations…and in general, just being the beautiful little girl…we all know her to be. Hardheaded…certainly! Fashionable…absolutely! Talkative…OMG! Yes, a real Chatty Cathy…who knew?
Me? Well, as you can surmise, Bella IS my life. Being a Stay At Home Parent for the last 7 years, what else could come of it. I’ve lived & breathed Bella 24/7. But now? Hmmm, now it is time for me. Not surprisingly, it is STILL (of course) about Bella! HA!
Just over a year ago, we designed and made her birthday cake. (after being quoted $650.00 – OH HELL NO!) A first for me…OK, Bella as well! Since then, I’ve done almost 100 cakes for friends, and clients. YUP! CLIENTS!
BELLADADDY BAKES was born…(please, feel free to like my page)…(yes, I inserted shameless plug) and now, well now I am pursuing starting a business. You’ll note: Bella is (obviously – duh!) still very much a prominent part of my life, and now my business…as it carries her name. I am pretty much known everywhere, as Bella’s Daddy…or simply BellaDaddy!
And now…BELLADADDY BAKES
(yup, another shameless plug -like the damned page already, would ya?!)
Check out the gallery, BellaDaddy Bakes Photos and remember, self taught, and I KNOW my Mother is rolling in her grave, laughing…”you are doing WHAT?” (Miss ya Mom)
I’ve designed and created for some amazing clients…well known and not…friends…neighbors…politicians and businesses….I’ll be confirming this business venture soon…licensing and all…as soon as I get some time away from cakes, and the day to day life of being a Parent to file…HA! (not a bad problem to have, really)
Oh, by the way, We’re ENGAGED! (when asked if she would be the flower girls, Bella exclaimed…”naw, I’ve already done that” (Thanks Rosemary & Colin…but she did agree to be our Best Girl)
So, in short…
