Hi and welcome to Layla, with a “y”. My name is Layla and I’m a 37 year old pet parent to a 16 year old Siamese cat named Akira and a 7 year old Dachshund mix named Lacey. I’m obsessed with collecting Funko Pop figurines with The Big Bang Theory and Willy Wonka sets being among my favorite. I have a home baking business called If I Were A Cupcake that I’m now on hiatus from after my most recent gastric sleeve surgery.
I had the bright idea to start this blog during a sleep deprived week night while I was pondering the ways of the world and the meaning of life. By the time I got up the next morning, the idea was still swimming around in my brain.
I’ve had several blogs over the years, all concentrating on different subjects but I wanted a centralized location for me to talk about everything: my experiences with cancer, my gastric sleeve surgery, as well as my favorite recipes, places I like to travel, etc.
I’m hoping by sharing my world, I’m able to connect with others but also discover more of who I am.
