Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
White buttercream, 3/4" green ribbon (picked it up at Jo-Ann's the other night), fondant cutouts (indulged myself in some cutters a few months ago...it was hard not to buy them all!), piped dots (that's the skill I feel shakiest about...and shakiness doesn't go well with delicate piping!). Wedding's May 31. I think I need some practice in the meantime. I'm thinking something Valentiney for Sunday's fellowship dinner, and...hmmm...I wonder if anyone's got a birthday coming up next week and wants a snickerdoodle cake...hmmm....

(Please, spare the obvious rebuke that 19.72 years of happy marriage -- not to mention the fruit(cakes) thereof -- are worth more than the prettiest cake ever. I want to enjoy a good whine.)

How's this: When you make it to 25 years, Ray can spring for an all-expense-paid trip for me to Erie and I'll make you a silver anniversary cake. You'll just have to find a place in your house for me to sleep, and surrender the use of your kitchen for a few days!
