Big life changes are happening around here.
I am now Amy I., MSW. Qualified to manage your cases, write your grants, organize your communities, and mess you up even more in therapy. Grad school is over. I’m so relieved and ready to have more time to read for fun, take more naps, and of course play in the kitchen as often as possible.
The graduation thing is just the beginning of the excitement I have to share with you, though. The real news, the big life change is that…
we’re moving to the Bay Area!
My techie husband got a phenomenal Silicon Valley job, and we could not be more thrilled to be returning to our home state of California next month after several wonderful years in the Pacific Northwest. I’m most excited about living in a foodie wonderland, not to mention the sunshine, year-round veggie gardening potential, and proximity to friends and family. For the next month or so, life will be full of boxes, selling our house (fingers crossed!), and lots of takeout.
So tell me, friends… anyone out there in the Bay Area? Can we play when I get there??
p.s. I wouldn’t dare leave you without telling you about those ridiculously adorable mortarboard cupcakes. Use your favorite cake and frosting as a base (I used devil’s food with cream cheese frosting). Construct the caps using an upside-down Reese’s peanut butter cup, a square of Ghiradelli chocolate, and a thin slice of sour belt. Glue everything together with small dabs of frosting and refrigerate overnight to solidify.
