A Nice Little Break

all great ach quote

Why hello my dear friends.

I’m not going to lie but I’ve been hesitant to come back to this place. A place that I know all too well, but a place I’ve had to push aside for the past few months for my own sanity and well-being. Even though the only constant in my life is change, when change occurs, like it did nearly a year ago when I started working full-time, I always try to hold on and resume life as normal. Slowly but surely I adjust and refocus, which is exactly what I have been doing for the past six months.


During this time away from my blog, I’ve been itching to write; however, the time commitment required to run a blog that is actually worth both yours and my time has been holding back. I’ve been afraid to come back out of fear that I couldn’t commit to the writing schedule I was on when I left posting five to seven days out of the week.

But then I remembered… one thing I love so much about this place is that it’s always here for me to come back to, however much I want and whenever I want. While I’m certainly am not ready to commit to any large writing schedule, I’m going to try to slowly get back to writing and sharing my passion, after all, that’s what it’s all about.

Quite frankly, I’ve really missed you and this place. I’ve missed your encouragement, your support and the relationships we’ve built through this blog over the past five years.  Although it only started as a space for me to document my journey as a new wife with a small interest in nutrition, as you can see, the journey has been far beyond than that. If you are new to my site, let me catch you up in hopes we can continue through this crazy journey called life together…

Welcome back friend! And good for you for taking a break and living life, that is just as important as writing!
