That’s me, smile-screaming on the kiddie coaster at Happy Hollow this summer. My little girl insisted we sit in the front row, for maximum thrills. I am so not a roller coaster person! But my kids got me on them at least four times over the past few months. And I have to admit, I kind of loved it.
That’s kind of where things are at right now — letting go a bit, enjoying the moment, seeing where things take me. After a loooong summer, we’re all settled into our new house in the Bay Area now (well, the garage is still full of unpacked boxes, but let’s not be concerned with that :-)). The kids have both started their new schools (my little guy finally started today, so I finally sat down for a few minutes to blog!). My family was here to help celebrate my 40th birthday over the weekend — it’s so nice to have nearby family again!
Slowly, but surely I’ve been getting back into a cooking rhythm. There are a few incredible farmers markets near us, which has been very inspiring! We’ve also been dining out a lot, as so many restaurants in the Bay Area are awesome and most are new to us. I’m looking forward to being able to share more of what I’m cooking and eating on the blog again — my Instagram hasn’t slowed down a bit, but I know some of you miss seeing recipes. I’m almost back!
