Reinvention of Myself & My Blog

It's been seven months since I last blogged (if you don't count the hot fudge recipe I just published). It's both been something I've missed and haven't I suppose. If I'd missed it enough I would have been doing it right (maybe that's why I'm finally writing again)....??

So much has happened in the last seven months I don't even know where to begin. From settling into the new house, getting through the holidays, falling in love, finding out he's a liar and I was the other woman, getting a new job, births, deaths, feeling I need to re-find myself. So much.

I'm not sure what the new reincarnation of this page will be. Some weeks it may look like a food blog. Other's may be full of gardening photos and updates on the new house. Maybe some more journalistic like posts as I explore who I am and what it is I'm looking for out of life.

Whatever it may be I hope you don't mind and find something here you enjoy. As for now. I'm writing for me.
