    My brief stint at Babette's Cafe is over. I have taken the job at Bakeshop, starting full time after I graduate in June. I have mixed feelings - happy to have had a wonderful experience, but sad because everyone that I have grown to love, I am now leaving...I have learned wonderful things from a master, Marla Adams. She is wise, smart, and firm. I am intimidated by her and yet she is willing to help me any way she can. Thank God for people like her.
