I’ve been away from the blogging world for over a year now and even though I only had a handful of regular visitors, I feel compelled to explain myself.
The end of 2014 and all of 2015 was a rollercoaster ride in terms of stability across all aspects of my life. Though I’ve skirted around the issue for a while, recently I’ve come to accept that feeling stable and rooted somewhere is a huge requirement for me if I am going to do anything but follow someone else’s lead or just veg out.
So to give you some background, C & I had just tied the knot, and since he had accepted a new fancy job in Silicon Valley, we were committed to moving to a completely new and foreign part of California where I had no professional ties and very little social community. We had also decided to take the plunge and buy a house so within a 12 month stretch we had moved 3 times to polar opposite neighborhoods across the Bay Area. All while I attempted to establish my freelance business and hold down a tumultuous, yet very satisfying, part time turned full time turned no time job. And then I got pregnant. Feeling dizzy yet? That was me all of January, part of February and sometimes even now.
So I’ve recommitted to the blog and to you, my favorite reader. I want to talk about a lot of different things: what I’m cooking from my bimonthly CSA box, what I’m growing in my soon to be backyard garden, food experiences, whether that be local or in far flung locals and my insight into work as a Personal Chef. Occasionally you will find a recipe, and there will be updates on my life and some first-to-know details on any in-the-works business projects.
I welcome your comments or requests to discuss specific topics. I look forward to sharing with you soon!
