During my blog hiatus, I joined Weight Watchers and rediscovered my joy of healthy eating. I am 35 lbs down from where I was a year ago at this time and feel like I have rediscovered my joie de vivre. For me, my food blog isn't about competing to make the most decadent dish and take the best pictures, it's about relating my joy of preparing healthy food for my family in its simplicity. I realized I didn't have to compete with all of the amazing and wonderful blogs out there. My blog is about my joie de vivre and a way to express myself creatively and at the end of this journey of self discovery, I think that is pretty wonderful.
For my friends and readers who have been gently (and sometimes not so) prodding me to update and post again, you will be seeing me here more often. I can't always promise a fabulous recipe and I definitely can't promise fabulous mouthwatering pictures, but I can promise that I'll write about things, food, and experiences where I find joy.
