It’s been a while since I’ve stopped in to chat with you all - I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. I certainly enjoyed mine, especially having a whole SIX days off of work! The last time I had that many consecutive days out of the office was, well, never! Not since I was in college, which at this point was years ago, so it was a very welcome break. And during that time, I did LOADS of baking… and subsequent eating, and then more baking, and then more eating… and then LOTS of sleeping. It was fabulous. (more…)
It’s been more than a month since I last posted here, and for that I am so sorry. So sorry on a number of levels – for the absence, but also for the reason. In that time I’ve done a touch of baking, some jam-making, and occasional weeknight cooking, but the truth is I’ve lost my appetite for the most part, and I haven’t found the peace or pleasure that I normally do in the kitchen. Because during the last month, other things have transpired too, life-altering, world-changing, heart-breaking things, so life has been a little off-kilter, to say the least. (more…)
Every time I’ve sat down to write here lately, I apologize for my absence, make excuses why I haven’t been around, and feel deeply guilty for my lack of consistency. This blog isn’t my job and I don’t do it to make money, I do it because I love to share food and experiences with other people. But lately, I just haven’t had the time, and I think I need to stop apologizing for that, and start just being okay with it. We all go through busy times, times when we can’t catch up with life’s to-do list, no matter how much we jam pack our schedules, and how much sleep we sacrifice to do it. So I think it’s time for a break. (more…)
It’s been three years since Sweetly Serendipity came into being. I started writing here in my litte virtual world on January 26th, 2010. I’d just returned home from a semester abroad in Australia, desperate for a kitchen, and a desire to chronicle all of my adventures. I never expected to stick with it so long!
I didn’t intend to write much about this, but as an excuse for recent blog silence (and probably a few more days of silence), I thought I’d let you all in on a little secret. (more…)
