Curiosity, Courage, and Cake. Sounds like a new show on TLC, doesn’t it?

Unfortunately, for those of you that still have a hole in your heart after the cancellation of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, this isn’t a new TV show. Its not the latest cupcake cookbook; its not the tagline of the next Alice in Wonderland movie.

It is a way of thinking that has helped me overcome some of the most difficult challenges I have faced in my short, but chaotic lifetime. I created this website to help others discover how a little bit of curiosity can change your entire life… a whole lot of courage is necessary if you are gonna make it out there… and there is nothing, NOTHING that can’t be made a little bit better with cake.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” –Maya Angelou

Every experience, interaction, moment in time helps to define who we are and where we will go. Sharing stories is how we, as a society, shape our reality. Sometimes, it is easy to boil all of what has shaped us down into three little words- curiosity, courage, and cake- and other times, it take a novel. This is my story.
