Thursday Sweets // 09.18.2014 // Ignite Lincoln!

Hey, dolls! It’s Thursday, September 18 – you know what that means? Ignite Lincoln is tonight in Lincoln, Nebraska! A crew of 15 speakers will be getting up on stage at the Rococo Theatre to talk about what drives them and what passions they want to pass on to our great community. I’ll be talking sweets, of course, and about Random Acts of Pastry. Want to know more? Be there tonight!
Are you going? I want to know!
Meanwhile, I’m starting a giveaway on Instagram this morning. A dozen almond-speculoos cookies! You must ‘follow’ Goldenrod Pastries on Instagram and add a comment, tagging two friends you will share the cookies with. That’s the thing about this giveaway: it’s not just for you! Let’s find a way to make time in our day for each other and passing on sweet treats and other great things. Let’s think beyond ourselves! 
Get on over to Instagram and get to following and commenting!
