A Pearl of Wisdom {by Messy Baker}

Messy Baker writes a very informative blog about baking, food and wine pairings called Covered in Flour. I was so glad she submitted a second pearl of wisdom:

Dear 17-year-old MessyBaker,

I know you are upset about that boy, but he’s not really worth being upset about, so dry your eyes and go meet some people. There are going to be more boys to get upset about, but you’re actually going to find love before you are 56, despite what you think right now. In fact, it’s going to happen sooner than you think, so try to focus on your homework for now, okay?

When it does happen, by the way, stick to your guns. Don’t let your parents tell you that you are too young. You’ve always known your own mind, remember that. There’s going to be a rough 4 months when you’re 20 and engaged and your parents aren’t shy about letting you know they disapprove. Don’t worry, they’ll snap out of it in time for the wedding and admit that you were right and they were wrong.

Also, that girl in your sorority that you think is way too cool for you to ever talk to her? Talk to her. She’s about to become your best friend, the person who teaches you to cook (and who you teach to bake), the person you can’t go to the grocery store without, the person who will find you when you are lost, who will fly from Africa to stand up in your wedding and who you will love more than anyone else (except your husband, of course). So quit being shy and evasive, and let her make friends with you. Oh, and get a wooden spoon. Your life will never be the same.
