it’s been a while hasn’t it? If you’re expecting a recipe or an amazing kitchen story this time around, you’ll be a little disappointed!
You know the saying when it rains, it pours? Well it’s been torrential.
These last 6 months have tested my patience, my resiliency, and my overall ability to just keep on keeping on. I would definitely describe myself as a pretty well-balanced person who’s pretty good at looking at the big picture, planning ahead, but things change.
I know, i’m being vague, so let’s cut to the chase. Kevin and I were involved in an accident in November, which started a series of challenges. His poor Jetta, his pride and joy, was written off, and we’ve been dealing with the complications ever since. An accident affects you, not just physically, but emotionally. He was so attached to his car, it was sad to see how affected he was by it.
I haven’t been able to shake it off, and that’s why the ultimate radio silence on the blog. I wanted to get back to things, I really do, and every once in a while I get these moments of light where I think maybe, just maybe I can swing it. Maybe getting back to blogging about life and making our house a home isn’t so hard, maybe it’s not such a time commitment, but other bloggers will be able to appreciate that there’s more to it than just taking a pretty picture and typing up some words.
You’ll remember that I’m also getting married in June (eek, 58 days), and I’m involved in an amazing dog rescue called Sit With Me. I’m an expert multi-tasker, i’ve got a spreadsheet for everything, and details for my details, i’m organized and proactive and detail-oriented beyond belief, sometime too much (sorry to my rescue fundraising co-chairs!) But this accident has changed something inside me. I can’t quite juggle my projects the way I used to, and sadly, my blog has taken the brunt of it.
I will get back to it soon, I hope, it’s a great outlet, and I know it. It’s a great community of people as well. I must admit, this post was/is scary to write. I feel very bare in writing it, I feel like I’m partially admitting failure, like I can’t keep up.
In due time, I hope to reconnect with the brands and businesses I had started forming partnerships with after the Food Blogger Conference 2014, and really start kicking things into gear. But for now, we’ll take care of each other.
