You guys!! Can I just say OY!!! It’s been a hot minute since I last posted and I realize that I’ve probably lost what few loyal followers I had but I promise I’m working on some new content and it won’t disappoint.
This spring and summer has left my heart truly upheavalled. We lost an incredibly special family member and more than that one from my tribe. I have been reeling to say the least. So I’ve deliberately been taking the time off to get some sort of life balance back and let my heart mourn on it’s own schedule. I’ve struggled with my “comeback post” here on the blog. I didn’t know if I wanted to even acknowledge my absence or if I should just jump right into some fabulous recipe but authenticity got the better of me (which I’m grateful for) and I felt like recognizing why I’ve been MIA was important.
Loss of any kind is hard…and grieving is a term I’m learning has a lot of edges and complexities. I’ve been spending a lot of time with my family, healing and hurting. My new mission has been to fill every single moment right up to the brim and our summer has truly reflected this. One thing I’m learning is that it’s ok to let the pain shine. Giving it validation isn’t something I wanted to do at first. But I’m learning through the support of some amazing people in my life that it is more than ok to cry…and even more so, it is ok to smile again too. One. Day. At. A. Time….but with purpose. That is my mantra.
So with all that said I look forward to getting back online and sharing some of my life with you…the lessons, the little hacks, the delight, the delicious, the time-saving, the messy and all the real.
Thank you for sticking around, I promise it’ll be worth it!
