Feeling the Cake Love!

With only 5 days until our grand opening, I am feeling lots if things -  from excitement and relief to exhaustion and stress!  But the most overwhelming feeling is one of tremendous love and support...and it has come at the perfect time. 

I've been blessed with a great network of friends, family and even those I've never met!  The encouraging posts to this blog and my facebook page always cheer me up and seem to come at just the right moment.  And the love doesn't end in cyberspace!  A great family friend recently gave me a 'key to prosperity' keychain that I use for my store and kitchen keys - I can't wait to unlock the door on opening day knowing that I'm stepping into a new chapter in my life.  And since this is truly a family business, my biggest fan - my momma - is sending me tiny 'All Things Cake' T-shirts and gear for my kiddos and future shop employees!  Love it!

In the past 24 hours two more wonderful surprises - random acts of kindness -  have come my way.  First, an amazing blog post by Going Green Mom on  It's my cake tale - told by an awesome mom and friend in her funny and heartfelt way. Thank you Kristen!!!

And just this morning I opened my e-mail and found a message from my UK namesake - All Things Cake UK!  They just wanted to wish me well on my upcoming grand opening...and they completely brightened my day!!

Wow - I am feeling the cake love today...
