I’m just throwing some feelers out there this morning…is anyone else like me in that to “save paper” (i.e. not wanting to wait for the printer to warm up) you just write recipes on sticky-notes in shorthand and then put it on your microwave during the cooking process?
No? Just me?
If you do this please let me know that I am, in fact, not crazy 🙂
This morning I had a hankering to make something warm and comforting, something that would warm me up and help me think. Immediately I thought of sweet Mama Pea’s homemade pumpkin spice latte and knew that was just the thing.
The thing I love about cooking in general is that it’s my comfort zone; it allows me to think freely and focus on one thing all at once. As I’ve experienced freedom from disordered eating my eyes have been opened to all of the possibilities that food can be, and it’s a whole new world! A healthy relationship with food is something that I longed to experience, and now that I do there are no words to describe how thankful I am.
And so, as I sat there stirring my pumpkin latte (by stirring I mean adding gobs of Stevia because I like it sweet) I thought about what I wanted to say this morning. I thought about how things on the blog have been going, where I want them to go, and what’s feasible for me to actually do while still maintaining a relationship with God, my marriage, a full-time job, and actually have a life on top of it all.
No, I’m certainly not going to quit the blog. And no, I’m certainly not going to be cutting back; if anything I plan to blog more often. The thing is, as much as I love food I don’t want every.single.post to be about recipes. Since food is such a huge part of my life I want to share the rest of that with you, my readers. There are new workouts I’ve tried and loved, there are huge kitchen disasters, funny stories, and just plain randomness that I want you all to be apart of…but I realized (duh, Heather) that in order to have you be part of it I have to share it with you.
Quite the concept, right?
All that being said, I am excited to start changing this blog again and bringing you all sorts of crazy tidbits from my crazy, wonderful life. I will be planning and organizing posts and photos over the coming weeks and there’s an incredible redesign that I’ve been working on as well with the amazing Garrison Everest that I can’t wait to reveal when it’s finished! I’m excited to share more of myself with you guys 🙂
