FAREWELL 2009 !!!

2009 was an incredible year .... Clay and I both celebrated milestone birthdays .... we both turned 50 (with a bunch of other friends) ... it was also our 5th wedding anniversary.

I was given the opportunity to meet many wonderful people ... some just by being in this business and some by being in the right place at the right time.

There was success all around me in 2009 ... with pleasure, I helped a friend launch her new business (and became a client); two other friends decided to start their own catering/cake business; I took a friend under my wing .. and with her help we will take Eileen Carter Creations to the next level.

I want to thank all of the many brides who met with me ... many of whom gave me the opportunity to play an important role on their special day. My wedding cakes of 2009 were colorful, elegant, some were very tall ... all were simply beautiful. I got the chance to create over 70 wedding cakes, 50 groom cakes, and countless cupcakes and all-occasion cakes. Based on comments from my brides, I was chosen "Best of Weddings - 2010" as handed out by Thank you.

It was so great to see so many of my 2008 brides return for their 1st anniversary cake this year ... many are either expecting their first child or have already started their family. I wish them all much happiness in the years to come.

I bid farewell to 2009 ... humbled. Thanks to all who made this year so special. I can't wait to see what is in store for 2010 !!!

Clay and I were on our way to deliver our final wedding cake of the year .... travelling 85 south ... I noticed the license plate (tag) on the car in front of me .... SANTA 8

I moved over a lane, and SANTA 8 put his blinker on to do the same ... so I figured, if it really is Santa driving that car, it would be to my best interest to let him cut in front of me. He did, and I moved over another lane.

As I approached the driver door of SANTA 8 ...... there he was, in his white cuffed red suit, rosey cheeks, bright white full beard ......... SANTA CLAUS !!!!

At age 50 ... I still believe !!! Merry Christmas !

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the wedding of Amy Unger and Josh Forrest (4/18/09) has been published in the Spring/Summer 2010 issue of The Knot magazine - Georgia Edition.
