A Season

I feel as if I have entered in a new season of life these days, and as it is during anytime, change and transition throws me for quite the loop.

I can honestly say this has been the weightiest few months I remember.   With the wedding last May, things were busy, and while they required attention and detail, they also included a freedom and creativity that I could easily express.

These days, I find myself, no longer a newlywed, but quickly approaching a one year anniversary with my darling husband.  Though our schedule seems ever changing, we have easily adapted to our quaint little routine and I wouldn't change it for the world.  We are no longer a family of two, but a family of three with our precious four legged addition.  Family been in town or we've traveled to see them, which is particularly exciting as we have celebrated the engagement of my sister in law with a dear friend of ours from college!  My best friends have gotten married, christened their first borns, or moved to new cities and jobs.  I've accepted a supervisory position at work and I am doing my best to give 110% each today and share my passion with my incredible team.

With this new 'reality,' as I turned the page of my planner on Sunday to April 2012, I've since been asking myself, "how did we get here?"  The days are flying into weeks and the weeks into months.
 I cannot tell you the number of times I have sat down to update this blog, only to find the task of reconnecting the past few months too monumental and daunting.  I write a few sentences, get distracted or preoccupied, and immediately close my MacBook.

I've missed the blogging community. I've still been reading your posts, and though I admit I have not been the best at commenting, I'm glad to keep to still be keeping in touch on this one way street.  I've missed your comments and interactions, but I hope to be back more frequently with recipes and cute little puppy photos to share.  Thanks for sticking around!


  1. Glad you are back! You certainly have been busy!!

  2. I feel ya! Just wait till you have kids (plural)! At least with the first one, you're excited to document and share every little thing that they do so you still keep up relatively well during your few-and-far-between moments to yourself. Then once you add more kids to the mix, you learn that while documenting everything would be nice, sometimes actually living in the moment and snapping an occasional picture to hopefully spark your memory down the line becomes more important. :) Fortunately, when you don't have the time to really record the details of your thoughts or events, things like facebook give you a place to still record and share at least something and maybe expand on it later. :)

  3. You have been busy! Blog when you're ready! I totally get the feeling of being overwhelmed. Get out there and enjoy life :) xo

  4. I feel this year is flying by too! Glad you are doing well!!
