So now that we're all thoroughly pickled, you may be wondering what the heck happened to the ol' blog here? The long answer is I moved, I renovated a house (well, I helped), I got a new job, I started volunteering, I got a dog, I reconnected with old friends, I kept travelling, I kept cooking (at least once a day), and eating (three times a day, sometimes more). I am also freelance editing and writing on the side (check out my website here). The short answer is that life got hectic and blogging became another obligation to worry about. I can't promise I'll post again, but I can't promise I won't, either. I guess we'll all just have to wait and see....In the meantime, thanks so much for reading!
