Oh, there you are...

After taking a much needed break to focus on 'things,' I'm happy to say that I feel okay re-entering the blog world.

It's been a trying and exhausting time for me mentally, physically, and emotionally; the detes of which I will not bore you.  I am happy to say that my little family has come out intact and stronger than before.  My blessings stretch far beyond anything I could possibly ever earn in this lifetime.

Things have changed these last few weeks, which will probably reflect in my writing and the direction of my blog, but I'm still me.  My passion is still about cooking/baking, saving money, and being creative.  I've found many different outlets that have simply broadened my horizons, so to speak, and I am looking forward to sharing them with you.

In the past few weeks, I've...

...started working from home.
...become motivated by fitness.
....made a personal goal to read more.
...taken a much needed family vacation.
...called on God many times to lead me.
...spent way to much money.
...studied my butt off for school.
....learned some new easy peasy recipes that are totes worth sharing.

I'll expand on each at another point.  For now, I'll leave you with this:

Nothing about the last few weeks made me want to quit being happy, and I am glad for that.  Nothing about the last few weeks made me question God's authority, and I am grateful for that.  Lastly, nothing about the last few weeks made me feel defeated, and I am proud of that.

Be happy in this moment, for this moment is your life.
