Lunch Box Chronicles: Day One-Hundred and Twenty Nine (Happy Belated Birthday Emma)
Spelt Right grow while making our bagels and breads the best ever. Life has been challenging - not challenging in a life or death sense - but challenging in a balancing the many pieces of a perpetually busy life sense. Good thing I have good people in my life to reign me in at times.
My time this summer has been split between home and AWAY. The kids' birthdays are one way to anchor me and those anchors have been one of my links to sanity.
Our cake boss days continue - Spencer has been on a cake making mission. He made one in early June for his older sister's birthday - Emma - 19 years vibrant.
As always, the cake was quite amazing - soft, tasty, chocolatey - simply out of this world...On a recent business trip, I brought a piece of cake to my business associate from AWAY. Perhaps not the best move.....We have created another addict to spelt chocolate cake - his simple request each time I return on a business trip - BRING A PIECE OF THE SPELT CHOCOLATE CAKE.
Enough on cakes and more on birthdays - I am very proud of my 19 year old. She did a stellar job her first year in college, and now is doing a stellar job as an intern at the VIA advertising agency in Portland. I like to take some credit that perhaps she learned some of her work ethic from her mom while making bagels at Spelt Right during the past three summers- but maybe I am taking a little too much credit.
Perhaps, this kid, now woman....is just stellar. Happy Belated Birthday Emma.
