I'm dreaming of...

my future bakery! ;)

I may have mentioned a couple of times before that one of my dreams is to own a bakery.
I love to bake and I think the best part about it is seeing other people enjoy eating the stuff I make. :)

I'm thinking I'll start with a cute little bakery first -- cookies, cakes, cupcakes, etc.

bakeries

All bakeries should be so picture perfect...

And then maybe expand into a full-on cafe -- coffee and other drinks, sandwiches...

I'm a sucker for bakeries

...bread, pies, etc.


I want my bakery to be like Katherine Heigl's in Life As We Know It.


And hopefully, it will eventually turn into something like Meryl Streep's in It's Complicated.


*Sigh*

What about you? 
What are you dreaming of right now?

I hope you are all having a fantastic week!

  3. I'm dreaming of the same thing. I want to one day have my own little bakery and milk tea shop. I'd have the interiors in hot pink and black and the tea cups in gold. =)

  9. I'd love to run a bakery! But I don't think I'm cut out for it, so stressful with early mornings. :( Bakeries are so cute, but I think I'm better off just cooking for my friends. xD

  14. I have always wanted to run an independent bookstore. One with cozy chairs and just stacks of books everywhere and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves on every wall filled to the brim with old and new books.

  15. This is my exact dream as well. It's Complicated is my favorite movie for this reason---her bakery/cafe is amazing. I have really been trying to work out the detail of this as I don't feel I was meant to be an accountant. I'm reading "My Life From Scratch" right now about Sandra Bullocks sister who opened a bakery after leaving the Hoolywood life. So far it's a great book. I hope both of our dreams come true.

  24. A bakery/cafe sounds like the perfect plan! I'm definitely down to eat at your bakery. I can't wait for you to achieve your dream. I dream of making it in the film industry. I know it's going to be one heck of a challenge, but I can do it. ;)

    Lots of love, B

  26. I've always been a fan of bakeries and cafes!
    One of my cousins love to bake and would like to
    open up a bakery as well. If you do open one, don't
    forget to invite me! :p I would love to open up a
    cafe, but I'm not very good at baking, even though
    I love it XD I would probably hire people like you
    who could help me out :p

  31. Ya, Katherine Heigl's bakery in "Life As We Know It" has a delightful atmosphere. That's one of the major techniques a store-owner needs to have to entice more customers.

  33. So far, the best bakery I've been to is the huge bakery building called Passion 5 in Itaewon. The scent of the place was heavenly, with the aroma of different pastries lingering in your nostrils long after you've passed them. The pastries and cakes are also displayed in a way that makes you want to grab and eat them right away!
