When I recently started blogging again, one of the things that got me going was the idea that while primarily a food blog, this was not going to be ONLY a food blog any longer. Ultimately the main reason I stopped blogging for so long was that I just did not want to take the extra time to put together a meal to photograph. Once dinner was done, it was time to eat. I had a toddler and a newborn to get fed and ready for bed, a kitchen that needed to be cleaned in order to take photographs, and by the time it’s all set and done – a bottle of wine to open and a couch just calling my name.
And while food is a big part of our lives – we gotta eat, right?! – it’s not the only part of my life. When I started blogging again I decided I wanted to write the occasional post about something else in my life. Whether that’s parenting, health, home décor/projects, books, or even fashion. Believe me, I am NOT an expert on any of this. Like many, I try my best to be a good parent, I want to be healthier (especially after struggling with unexplained weight gain over the last 18 months), I want to be proud of the way my house looks, I unwind with a good book (while setting a good example for my children – see, back to being a good parent!), and – well – striving to look presentable 80% of the time!
So, you may be used to this blog being a place to find relatable recipes, be forewarned that I have some non-food related posts up my sleeves (though, it is summer and they’re short sleeves, as is the list!) I hope you’ll stick around to see what else I have going on in my life. Again, I’m not an expert, but maybe you’re not either and I can inspire you to try something new.
