It really has been ages since I blogged. The banner that I had up was my snowflake banner. Yikes! It is now updated and fresh and summery looking. Ahhh. I want to say a big fat thank you to anyone who still reads this and/or checks back to see if I've posted anything. Smooches to you.

I recently moved and as everybody knows, moving is stressful. I hadn't moved in almost 5 years so my brain conveniently erased all memories of moving. As soon as I packed my first box, all the lovely memories came flooding back. Packing and me, we are not friends. But, we have been in our new place for over a week and are unpacked and settled and ready to resume some normalcy.

I've realized lately that I really miss blogging. It really is a stress reliever at times. I also miss baking, which I haven't done in ages. I think Rob misses it too. So tonight, I shall bake in my new kitchen for the first time!

In my blogging absence, I have been spending a lot of time taking and editing photos and posting them on Instagram. I have found a great community of people on IG. It's become somewhat of an addiction. Here are a couple photos, taken from my rooftop:

This move is a first of hopefully many changes for me. It's time for me to do different things in life and I'm looking forward to what the future holds.

If you like the pictures above, you can purchase those and some of my other photos here.

Now I just need to decide what to bake tonight...


  1. You are so talented, baking , photos, an ear that listens well.. I heart you.

  2. I'm so happy you're back. I missed you!

  3. Kara-Thank you! I adore you immensely.

    Ronna-Thank you! I look forward to catching up on your blog. :)

    Marie-Thanks! I've missed you too.

  4. Gordon and I moved ten times in our first 17 years together and it SUCKED. I am so glad we have finally found the place we're supposed to be and settled down!! Hope you enjoy your new home. Love the photos, and I'n glad you're back.

    PS Ronna baked an awesome lemon poppy seed cake for us last night, and made a great prime rib on the barbecue after the power went out!

  5. Isn't moving the worst?! I don't think we'll be at our new place long-term but it'll be great for the next couple years.

    I swear I need to crash your get-togethers! Sounds deelish.
