It took thirteen months and 7 days for us to close the bakery and take a vacation. So we closed for ten days. Two of those days I still had to work to fulfill orders (under protest). I suppose it is already over because today I did the shopping and I made the Living Whole Burgers and Living Whole Buddha Balls (they are baking as I type).
Yesterday was my birthday, which I made sure fell inside of the “on vacation” window. In the morning we went for a lovely walk in Playa de Muro. Photos…
For the afternoon, I literally did my best to do nothing. I slept, I relaxed, and did nothing. Then, our two amazingly lovely, beautiful, kind, sweet, amazing friends Kathryn and David took us to Villa Vegana for dinner. What a beautiful, relaxing, peaceful evening. The food was amazing. The owners are amazing. The animals are amazing. And of course, the company was outstanding.

So, now it is back to the grind… We were not able to save nearly enough money for the winter so far, so I am REALLY hoping that a miracle happens over the next two months. We need money to pay the bills. I am looking into getting a part time consulting or teaching job for the evenings to help, but it will be hard.
I have started a patreon account. A few people have offered to support the business on a monthly basis. I can use the help. So, in turn I will post recipes, have talks about baking, give some tips and coach the members through their baking experiences.. and a few naked photos of my breads 🙂 I would be endlessly thankful if you thought about doing the same.. you can find me at
And last but certainly not least, I was interviewed on the radio this morning (Mallorca Sunshine Radio 106.1). Well, truth be told, I was interviewed on Monday, but it was broadcast today. I really did not do as well as I would have liked during the interview. A lot of “ums” and other sounds.. and a few pauses which I was not happy about. But Jan was amazing, a great professional, and super sweet to spend some time with. I am so thankful to her for that opportunity.
Here is a link to the section of their website where the podcast is posted. Once it is there I will update you with that exact link. I would love to hear your feedback too <3

1. in the first photo of the long doc, there were people standing on it, but I did not want them in the photo, so I removed them in photoshop 🙂
and 2… those jeans I am wearing at dinner last night, today had two major breakouts.. one in my ass, and the other just below the zipper. Only funny in the sense that I noticed this while checking out in the food store today when a) I went to my back pocket for my phone, and then when I heard a noise pulling the keys out of my front pocket…
