As you may know, I’m an avid chef. I’ve spent a large majority of my life baking/cooking and it’s a passion.
I’m also quite ill with a neurological disorder that has devastated me - physically, emotionally and monetarily. Just this autumn, my husband and I had to leave everything we had in Texas behind to start over just to get better medical care on the East Coast.
Because of the severity of my disorder, I cannot hold a job. I’m hospitalized too often. I can, however, bake.
It’s something I take pride in and it’s actually become a coping mechanism for me. Thus, I’m going to be starting an Etsy bakery - titled Vira’s Vittles. I’m open to other names. This is just a working title.
I am not asking for charity. I’m simply trying to open a store that could produce some much-needed money. If you could spread the word, I’d be eternally grateful.
We’re in the process of setting up a bank account to specifically handle our business. This means a lot to me and could be a massive help - not to mention a motivator for me to get up in the morning and actually be able to contribute. I won’t lie - things have been tough emotionally and this could be a game-changer for me.
I understand entirely if you can’t make a purchase; but spreading the word is just as - if not even more - important. It means a lot to me. A lot.
Thank you all for your love and support in all I’ve done. You help keep me going everyday - not matter how bad I feel, how much I hurt, or how hopeless it seems. This amazing community keeps me smiling and pushing forward.
Thanks again for listening and here’s to (hopefully) the start of a shop that will bring joy to a lot of people.
