I Know I’ve Been MIA, Here’s Why

So the last post I published was about our Christmas holidays–over 6 months ago, yikes! But don’t let that fool you into thinking I’ve left the blogging world. I have simply been busy with life & work, and haven’t quite found the balance that allows for me to keep posting about my personal life. That and I stopped inventing or recreating recipes, and opted out of the 365 project for 2018. BUT now that things have settled a little bit after moving into the new house, and while I am much busier with my businesses, I have more of a streamlined process and have a little more time to start writing again.

First things first, I have transitioned from eating keto to eating low-carb and healthy. What does that mean? I now enjoy sugar-free smoothies in the morning that include bananas or cherries, and a tasty glass of [pure] orange juice on the weekends. I still avoid pasta and potatoes, and other culprits like bread and any processed sugar or sugar-substitutes. So yes, some nut-free, sugar-free recipes might be in the works in the future. But for now, I am just focusing on eating healthy, and finding foods that don’t make me feel like crap. So far, so good.

Next, I wanted to let you in on a little secret. If you don’t follow my business blog (pregnancy, baby & parenting), then you probably missed the announcement earlier this year that my husband and I decided to try to start a family of our own. So, if you are interested in following along, the first chapter was released in March, and I will continue to publish further chapters as things progress.

Behind The Scenes Of Starting A Family – Chapter 1

So with that, you’re all caught up and reminded that I still exist. I will hopefully be posting a little bit more often in the second half of this year, but feel free to follow along the adventure on Instagram, as I tend to post there much more often than on the blog.

Next posts: our anniversary adventure, our shed building & renovating awesomeness, and whatever else life throws our way!
