I have a confession to make. I had an affair.
A pastry affair.
Allow me to explain.
A couple years ago, I studied to be an astroparticle physicist. I spent six years of my life immersed in complex equations, problem sets, and research. I didn't enjoy what I was doing, but I was good at it.
As time passed, my misery grew and I began to seek an escape from my structured life. This is the moment, the wonderful moment, when I discovered pastries. Making pastries, eating pastries, sharing pastries, dreaming about pastries...
It was a delicious affair.
I tried to stay faithful to physics (I really did), but pastries had completely captured my heart. And so I switched careers to pursue a life of butter and sugar.
I love to wear frilly, polka-dotted aprons because they make me feel like a 1950s housewife.
I like to do arts and crafts and go vintage thrift store shopping
I have the ability to be obscenely domestic.
As for the photography, I shoot with a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with a 18-55mm IS lens.
I use natural light for all of my food photography (and a tripod whenever possible). The secret ingredients, if you will.
But honestly, I'm just a 20-something girl trying to find her place in this mad world.
So, welcome to my affair. I hope you stop by for a visit and stay awhile. I always enjoy the company. You never know, you just might find yourself starting an affair of your own.
