Oh you guys. I have been so remiss in posting. I mean REALLY remiss. Like…months and months and months.
I have zero excuses. None. Not a one. Life is busy. (So is everyone’s.) Life is hectic. (So is everyone’s). I have two kids under the age of 6. (lots of people do!) Yadda, yadda, yadda.
Nonetheless, I am cooking. Perhaps not anything I can brag about or post about or photograph, but I’m cooking. (Obviously I am cooking, how else would we be eating?)
See all that above? That was all written about two months ago. That is to say, LAST YEAR.
Yeah…. This whole life thing is getting in the way of me cooking, photographing, documenting, writing and keeping up with this blog. Which makes me sad. Sad, sad, sad. I’ve always loved writing here and the fact that I can’t squeeze it in makes me feel like a piece of me is missing or changing or becoming less…. vibrant.
So, nothing to do for that except keep trying. So here I am. Trying.
New Year’s Eve I made beef wellington to celebrate a year’s end and a new year beginning.
My husband’s birthday is close to New Year’s and the kids and I had fun making him a lego cake.
See? We’ve been eating well.
My kids have been growing well, too. My oldest is now in actual school and so I’ve been making lunches every day and you know what? I actually HATE it. I would’ve thought that I would like making lunches but, nope, not at all. I rejoice every Friday when it’s pizza and jello/pudding day and she wants to buy lunch.
We spend some time being silly, though. Always time for that.
Mostly, however, I am trying to appreciate what I have. My kids are great, my jobs are good and fulfilling, we eat well and laugh often.
I will try, however, to get some recipes up here. In the jam-packed, full afternoons, evenings and weekends, I will try to pause and take the time to document so I can write later. Thanks for checking in once in a while here, and not giving up on me!
