Coming Back


It’s almost midnight and I am enjoying the quiet of my living room with a beer trying to figure out what to write after a year and a half of almost zero blogging.  For a time I had switched over to a  blog, but that didn’t work out like I had hoped, then things went completely haywire and I had to take a step back from blogging completely to focus on rebuilding my life.  Today my life is completely different than the one I had when I wrote my last post.  I don’t want to get into the details too much since they are far too personal and there is a lot of pain associated with them.  However, there are a two things that I feel my readers need to be updated on, since these things were such a presence in my blog before.

First, Tom and I separated at the beginning of this year.  We were having a lot of problems over the last couple years and decided that perhaps a break would be beneficial.  I think it has been and we are getting along great, working together and starting to make tentative plans to be a family again.

Second, we temporarily moved back to southern California, which in the end turned into a massive disaster, but that also is getting better and we are planning to move back north as soon as humanly possible.

Brae and Gavin are doing great.  Brae is almost 11 and in 5th grade this year!  Gavin will be turning 3 in October and is a wild carefree sweetheart.  They will be a bigger part of my blog than before since much of my cooking is done with them in mind.

I will not be posting often, maybe once a week and mostly recipes.  I was shocked to see how many people still visit this blog everyday which I am so very happy about.  I miss blogging so much and am excited to get back into it.

Until next time.  🙂
