Client love

When you freelance, you have a love/hate relationship with clients. You love them for the juicy projects they have and the fact that they help pay the mortgage.

Just what I needed on a day when other parts of my life are a little off.

Three cupcakes later, I’ve finished a 1,000-word article (likely fueled by the sugar) and the warm fuzzy feeling is still going strong. Thanks best client of the world!

    Oh my God, 24 cupcakes! I would have had to stop working for the entire day so I could give them the proper amount of reverence before licking the frosting off each and every one. I want some of your clients (well, maybe just that one)!!!

    As is the case on so many days, I yearn to live next door to assist you in appreciating your clients through the fine act of cupcake consumption!
