A Poem.


If we were shades
who walked here once
over the heather, over the shining stones,
fresh in our skin and bones
with all of the time to come
left to be us,

if we were dust,
once flesh, where a cloud
swoons on the breast of a hill,
breathing here still
in our countable days,
the words we said,

snagged on the air
like the murmuring bees,
as we lay by the loch,
parting our clothes with our hands
to feel who we were,
we would rather be there

than where we are here,
all that was due to us
still up ahead,
if we were shades or dust
who lived love
before we were long dead

Kate Funk: Wedding Cake Baker!

A friend asked me to make her wedding cupcakes this past winter and I said yes, even though in the back of my mind I was thinking "NO way, I'm no professional baker!!" But since I struggle with saying no I nodded my head and said I'd be honored. The last two months have been an ongoing panic attack which has included testing recipes, fondant, gum paste, endless trips to Michaels, discovering my new favorite store Fante's, nightmares, and a constant slew of self doubting messages. Anywho, the day finally came and dear lord was I nervous. I almost yelled at my poor boyfriend for listening to my wrong directions, before I stopped myself realizing, I did this to myself. Anywho, with my boyfriend's amazing little sister and my own I was able to complete a task that seemed insurmountable. The wedding cupcakes and top tier turned out truly gorgeous and I could not be more proud of my master piece. It turned out perfectly and although I vowed to NEVER do it again, I know that if someone asked me, I'd say yes. So please, for the love of God, don't ask me. :)

Happy Birthday to Me!

It's time to admit it... I am officially a quarter of a century old! Craziness. I can't believe that I am this old. Growing up, 25 seemed like an adult, it seemed like an age that came along with engagements and first homes, both of which I am lightyears away from. I guess each year, I have to look at how far I have come, and accept and be happy with the progress that I've made, even if it doesn't look similar to my grand plan in life. To be honest, my life is pretty fantastic today, there really isn't much I could ask for. Hopefully this time next year, I will be able to say the same. Happy birthday to me and thank you to all of the people who made it special!
