I know I know I know… it’s been a while.
I’ve… um… ya know.. uh … been busy. with that thing called life.
Actually. I’ll be honest. About a year ago I sorta prioritized things and blogging didn’t make the list. gasp.
The honeymoon period seemed to wear off and it felt like a job. But a really really really really low paying job. Did I mention the workload? I was pretty much in Office Space land.
So I stopped. Why do something you don’t enjoy? (I mean as a hobby- I understand a lot of life is doing stuff we don’t like to do. Can anyone say dishes?! Amen.)
But then something happened.
I started to miss it. My hobby. Photography. Food. Cooking. And connecting with all y’alls. yep, I live in Texas now, gotta embrace.
So I’m back! And totes in style with this rad new cocktail. Limit one. Really. It’s a delicious doozy.
Here’s to being back:
