So Where Have I Been....?

I know it’s been a hot minutes since I posted anything on the blog, apologies for ‘ghosting’ you all! It’s been a ~7 week hiatus, but who’s counting haha. Where have I been? Grab a snack or cup of tea and let me tell you…

Self Care

A few of you who have been reading since the beginning might remember a time when I was posting to the blog every single Wednesday (sometimes even more frequently). That was a time in my life when I was really feeling passionate about sharing my story and had so much ‘energy’ to be bold and put myself out there, so to speak. But it’s not always easy to get the motivation to sit down and share about my food, travel and life adventures. I ALWAYS WANT TO! However, in a world of social media and my personal tendency for self-comparison it can get really draining to sustain the creative flow. I didn’t take an intentional break from blogging, but I’m glad that I ‘stepped back’ for a minute. Taking time to just live my life and do the things I wanted to, go where I wanted, and not worry about capturing every moment is very liberating! So here is my PSA for taking self-care. I needed it. You need it. We ALL need it regularly.


Now self-care is something that I’ve sadly been regulating to the weekends. In early February, I got back on the work travel grind. Flying out to the East coast every Monday-Thursday, I’ve been extremely exhausted and no lie at times wondered how I used to do this for 40 odd weeks straight. But one thing that I am starting to learn is that a job is just a job. I’m always looking to make my work meaningful for my life and those within my sphere of influence. Moreover, I want to bring my best self to work. How am I going to make that happen? I don’t really have the answer to that yet, but I do know that I want to seek out contentment more than happiness and peace over busyness. If you have any tips for this millennial in the workforce please let me know!

Looking to the Future

I’m glad to be back in the blogging mindset and look forward to sharing more of my thoughts with all of you who enjoy reading them. My goal is to consistently make content that I enjoy creating and have fun along the way! So here is to all that is to come in my work and life ‘diary’ and of course in my food quests.

Thank you for reading! ♥
