They say write about what you know.  I think this philosophy applies to charitable contributions as well.  So when I found out that Aunt Rita’s Foundation was hosting a bake sale to raise money for AIDS awareness, I sprang into action ….. in the kitchen.

Last night I baked 75 cupcakes and had a blast doing it. Chocolate & Peppermint, Red Velvet & Cream Cheese, Chocolate Espresso & Maraschino Cherry, Vanilla Funfetti & Amaretto were my contributions. No need to tell you I am “whipped” today, but when I saw the happy face of the volunteer who picked up my little goodies, it made it all worth it.

2010 was a great year.

Super busy.  Super fun.  A little bit spastic……frantic……non-stop……on-the-go…..All. The. Time.  Whew!

I turned 30.  Went to Disneyland.  Took part in 7 weddings.  Baked hundreds of cupcakes.  Gleeked out a lot.  Repeatedly exclaimed that I liked my hair and my haricuts and my whole house was great.  And discovered that I really like double arcs of colored light in the sky caused by reflections of the sun’s rays in rain. (rainbows for you non-scientific folk)

When I stopped to breathe once a week, I tried to focus on the small moments and subsequently captured 1000’s of them on film.   Here’s a snapshot of my favorites.

While taking a look back, it also turns out my online persona is composed of a varied group of categories.  I put them in the shape of a pie because it’s yummy and oddly appropriate in this instance.

50% Foodie

20% Gleek

11% Workaholic

8% Drummer’s Wife

5% Proud Puppy Mama

3% Car Dancer

2% Princess

1% Double Rainbow Enthusiast
