Hi there. I have some news today.
I started this blog three and a half years ago. I was single, living with my parents, and wondering what to do with all the words and recipes piling up in my head. So I started this little corner of the web with a hot pink point and shoot camera and a recipe for pound cake.
It's amazing how much your life can change in just a few years, and keeping this blog has been one of my favorite ways to document and remember all those wonderful things. Meeting Justin. Getting engaged. Marriage. Buying a house. Finding out we're going to be parents. Having a baby. Starting new jobs, starting a business.
And it's that business I'd like to tell you about today. I spent this past summer putting my photography on the front burner and it's been more challenging, more rewarding, and more fun than I could've imagined. I've enjoyed meeting new people, getting out of my comfort zone, and watching God bless my efforts. He is so very good.
Somewhere between the marriage and the baby and the business, this blog got lost in the shuffle. That's not to say I didn't think about it, because I did, but when you're on Week 22 of Horrible Morning Sickness and you can't bear the thought of food, you don't cook. You don't take pictures. And you certainly don't blog. (Unless you all would've been terribly interested in what Special K looks like the second time around.) And then when Quinlan arrived, it was a wonderful, exhausting time - and given the choice between making cupcakes or taking a nap, I'm choosing the nap.
By the time things started to be normal again, coming back to this space felt a little awkward. I sat down countless times to tell you about a recipe, but I felt like I was trying to cook in someone else's kitchen. You know, when you've got a perfectly good recipe but you can't find the mixer or figure out how their oven turns on. It happened a few times.
I was starting to feel confused having two different spaces, and for those who are brave enough to read both sites, I don't want you to feel overwhelmed trying to follow multiple blogs. I started to feel like I couldn't keep up with both and I wasn't sure where to put certain things. Part of my photography business includes sharing personal posts along
with my professional work, so after some careful thought and half a pan
of brownies, I've made a decision: I won't be blogging here anymore. The
site and links will remain active and the recipes and writing will
still be here for as long as they're wanted, but I'll only be blogging
on my new site from now on.
Over there, you can find weddings, recipes, engagements, families, personal musings, bits & pieces of here and there's, and some cute pictures of my kid. You are such a wonderful group of friends and I hope you will join me in this small (but much needed) change.
Come on over, I'd love to have you.
