Social Media. A wonderful way for us to stay connected to friends and family, stay on top of current events, and watch cat videos. While I’ve dabbled with them all it seems, being a Gen-Xer, I typically just use Facebook and Instagram. There was a time that my timeline and feeds would have been filled with football references, weight training articles, wrestling videos and general dude hijinks.
But now, if someone were to check out my timeline, it's shared cookie pic after cookie pic from my unfairly talented wife. My own timeline is filled with other cookiers that I follow. There is more than one instance where I’ll say to her, "Hey, did you see the (insert well done cookie here) that (insert talented cookier) put on FB/IG"…and I’ve seen it before her!
I know you cookiers by your cookie names, your real names . . . what state you live. . . what technique you prefer. . . I know who’s presented at CookieCon, and what you presented on. I’m sure all of my college teammates just love seeing pictures of intricately piped flowers and cutsie little baby shower cookies.
I still manage to sneak in a football post every now and again, but these confections are a huge part of my life now. As much as football, weightlifting, wrestling. . . and cat videos. . .
