There are times in your life that things seem to fall into place and the signs are all around you, nudging you into new and amazing directions. This year has been one of those times for me. I sometimes, in my rare times of quietness, sit back and marvel at everything that has happened. Building a business is much like a stream etching its way through a mountain until it can become a strong flowing river. It requires patience and perseverance and hard work and there are points where it seems like you will never get there, but little by little you work through it and come out wiser and stronger. I went through a great many rough spots where I felt like throwing in the towel but standing at the front of the kitchen at my very own launch made me so grateful that I stuck it out.
Months of planning finally came to fruition this past Thursday at the official launch of my classes at The Dirty Fork Studio. Thank you to media that attended. I had an amazing, fun time with all of you.
A special thank you to Nadine from The Candy Buffet Company as well for setting up the most adorable candy cart to display all my goodies and to Chef Jacqui Brown for envisioning and creating a venue like the Dirty Fork Kitchen where people can share their passion for food.
A final thank you to my family, who have gone wife-less and mother-less for many days and nights while I toiled away. It is only the beginning of my journey and there is still a long road ahead but I am thankful everyday for such an amazing support system. I love you guys!
The class information and dates have been published here so go to book and I will see you there!
Here are some of the 500+ photos that Justin took on the night…
