A few weeks after my mom passed away from lung cancer, my sixteen year old cousin, Abby, decided to start a club at her school called Cakes for Cancer. To put in her own words, Cakes for Cancer is a club that hopes to “raise money to help find a cure for lung cancer and to spread awareness about this terrible disease. This club is a way for me to honor my Aunt’s life and help to find a cure so that others hopefully will never have to go through what my aunt did.”

I helped her and a few of the girls in the club bake cakes for bake sales they held at their school and at the local farmers market. To date, they have already collected close to $10,000! Not bad for selling a few slices of cake.

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
