About the site

This is a space for me to explore and display several of the creative avenues I’m interested in. A blog that keeps me writing weekly and gives me the freedom to share my life with others, an author site to promote my writing (as of Dec. 2019 I’ve finished one novel and am close on several others!), and a photography page to display photos I take of the things that bring me joy!

What’s with the name?

I’m glad you asked! A few years ago a new building went up across from our favorite local diner and Seth and I always joked about how we should buy it and open a business. I don’t remember how but we came up with the idea that it would be a bar and bakery called “Cakes and Mistakes,” for the obvious reasons. We never did open up a business (yet) but cakes and mistakes really became my motto for life.

When you think about it, it works on so many levels. I personally have always loved baking and I have the biggest sweet tooth! So I make a lot of cakes and I make even more mistakes. I’ve made mistakes while making cakes. And most importantly, what’s the best way to deal with making a mistake? Eat cake, of course!

So while cakes and mistakes came about because of a fake business venture, it has become an all encompassing phrase we use when something goes wrong (as it often does).

Thanks for stopping by!

Whatever brought you here, I hope you’ve seen something that will encourage you to stick around. And while you’re at it, check out what’s going on in other areas on the site. It may not all be filled to the brim yet, but I’m working hard to get it there.
