Aaand, what a better way to break a hiatus than to share a photo of a delicious ancient-grain-cake, cherry and dark chocolate infused, fresh whipping cream and candied ginger truffle!
So, hello there dear reader (all 2 of you still left, I’m sure). How have you been? What’s new since 2012. Wondering why I am back, or rather why I ever left?
Let’s answer the second question first. I suppose the truth is that I’m not sure. But the long answer is that I got really busy, really distracted and also my whole focus on wellness evolved. The blog was starting to feel less relevant as I changed. I moved away from just a focus on food and trying to eat the “off white way” to a focus on behavior and tapping into what makes me feel good and balanced. I also finished grad school, did a half Ironman, had a baby, got a new job, moved, moved again, and now here I am.
Okay, so on to the first question, and really the most important. I’m back because I feel that I have something to offer. I feel that in spite of my credentials (yes, I did mean in spite), I feel like my perspective on wellness and my passion for helping people feel ignited about doing things that make them feel good is worth sharing. At the very least it will make me feel good, so, yay! One more happy person.
For a long time I mulled over finding a venue to use to resurface. Should I get a new blog? Should I go a different route? Does anybody even read blogs anymore? Basically, I was making excuses and spent a lot of time trying to find the ideal solution, which in turn, left me stifled. Isn’t this the case for so many decisions? If I can’t do it perfectly, I won’t do it at all. It certainly has gotten the best of me on more than one occasion.
So, here I am – taking the giant leap from contemplation to action, and not caring a darn bit about it being perfect. Over time you’ll see this blog change. I’ll update the background, the pages, and the posts will change. We’ll talk more about the process to finding health and wellness, and yes, there will be some recipes and nutrition information mixed in as well. You might see some guest bloggers, such as my dearest friend, amazing nutrition and wellness professional, Andrea Lopriorie, and maybe even a hello from my husband Matt, who now has is PhD in nutrition (yep, I told you we’ve been busy).
But for now, I want to share with you my newest muse, my most powerful inspiration, the reason I do anything at all: my son Callum. I know, isn’t he amazing?
Be well, friends and we’ll reconnect soon. In the meantime, let me know what you’ve been up to! Can’t wait to catch up.
