Yes, I’ve been away. I got to visit all the best places and people. I got to meet my brand new nephew and hang out with my 2-year-old protégé. It was fabulous. I can’t wait to tell you about it!
Oh, the People I’ve Seen!
I had such high hopes. So many plans and ideas. I was going to bring you with me on this journey. So what happened? Well, I DID do most of the things I had set out to do on this trip, and I photographed all of it. But it AMAZES ME how completely impossible it is to sit down for some peace and quiet with a laptop when toddlers and babies are in the house. It also amazes me how COMPLETELY SAPPED of energy a person is at the end of a day with said little people. When I nannied and babysat as a teenager I had hours of boredom even after cleaning, finishing my homework, and watching a few episodes on Food Network. What happened? And how do parents do this full-time? Oh, did I mention that I was the third adult in this house? I feel like an incredibly inferior human right about now. Maybe 30 really does mean something…
Oh, the Things I’ve Discovered!
Not to worry. All of the recipes and posts I dreamed up will be coming your way very shortly!
