I know it’s been a while since I last posted something. It’s been a whirlwind few months.
M quit his job, and took a month off before starting the next gig, so we spent it traveling and prepping the house for the upcoming major remodel. Then the remodel (and M’s new job) began (and is still going on) – full house electrical update along with earthquake retrofit, and complete remodel of the lower level of the house (it was unlivable). That alone has been very time consuming, and limiting our access to various parts of the house, and I just haven’t been very creative in the kitchen, mostly just making our staple quick and easy meals.
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas my father passed away unexpectedly. This was/still is a difficult time. I’m not feeling too motivated to post anything right now, but I know I will be again soon. Once the remodel is done, we’ve finalized things with my father’s resting place, and I’ve found a groove again I will return to blogging my fave and newly found recipes.
Until then, I wish you all the best in this new year.

Sending all my best thoughts and prayers to you and yours during this powerful time of transition, Veronica. I am so sorry for your loss. Keep taking gentle care of you through ti all.
Thanks, Maria, for your kind words and thoughts. I’m very fortunate to have family and friends who are supportive. xoxo
I’m so sorry for the loss of your Father. But just now it made me think of a flood of positive things which happened since his passing. I got to see you and M. I got to recall your Father’s loving tribute to you at your wedding (still makes me cry happy tears). I got the recent string of e-mails from you reconnecting us. Learning how much more awesome M is than I already knew, and getting to see you guys tonight!
I have yet to know the loss of someone as close as your Father is to you but I’m realizing there are lots of positive after effects to account for.
Greatest of them all is your Father’s legacy in you. The smartest girl I’ve ever known. And you’re beautiful and have a kick-ass personality to boot. There simply isn’t a better thing I can think of if it were my legacy.
Your smile is so happy and inviting so I hope you can list your own account of positive outcomes and let the world see you smile.
Gimme a holler if you ever need to vent, to be lifted up, or just want to share a recipie to keep me from getting fat(ter).
Much love to you!
