i will never bake you a home made cake.

that's what i told seth when we got married. he loved baked goods and had always gotten home made cakes from his mother or grandmother for his birthday, home made breads, pretty much everything home made. i came from a box cake, mac n cheese fam... and the only thing i had ever baked was apple pie.. and all i did was peel the apples...

anyway i dont know what the hell happened but if you know me, you know that i'm kind of a baking machine now. seth brought to my attention that this weekend i made home made lasagna with home made sauce, whole wheat bread, zucchini bread, apple pie and two batches of pancakes. and i love it. i would NEVER give anyone i know a box cake ever again... even when we have birthday parties for one of seth's friends... i make them a home made cake.... that's whole wheat. i love waking up on the weekends and knowing i can bake whatever fun treat breakfast we want to have, i love knowing that even if all we have is flour i can make a delicious loaf of bread, i love that if someone comes here and has a desire for something sweet, that my hands have the ability to make it out of nothing and it makes them happy. i love testing just how healthy yet still fluffy and tasty i can make a baked good....

seth really brings out the best parts of me. the home maker. the baker. the vegetarian.... we were talking last night about how crazy it is that if either one of us thinks about being married to someone who ate meat that we wouldn't be able to handle it.. it just really means a lot to us. but it wasnt always that way for me and its so awesome that it some how became that way and i can relate to seth in that way, it may sound silly to people who dont care about eating meat, but its super important to me and seth and its really important that we both understand that feeling....

i'm just so glad that i dont hate baking anymore, or cleaning the house, or not eating meat, or doing laundry, or cooking... its so fun to be a wife and mom, and its so fun to take care of your house for your family... and i'm so thankful that i get o do that for them and that i get to enjoy doing it.

i read the title to this post and thought, well that doesn't sound true, in fact, it would probably be organic and whole wheat and low to no sugar...ahh, but now it all makes sense.

i wanna eat a whole wheat cake with chocolate icing...um. ya. going to go have some water now.
