As you may have noticed, the last blog post was back in October of last year.
I have opened my laptop many many times since then with the intention of posting but something happened meaning that I wasn’t able to. I forgot my login details (which happens on an almost daily basis with one of my passwords for something or other) or the pictures I wanted to use weren’t good enough, or something.
The truth is, i have come to really dislike my little blog corner. It is a constant reminder of what I am not doing. Not a reminder of all that I manage to balance every day. And like any juggler, there comes a time when you just take on too much and something has to give.
I have really tried to re-ignite the initial passion I had for sharing food ideas and recipes but it has been to no avail. I will still be tweeting over @Graciesbakes but be warned, that tweet account is my life. Not a sweetened dusted with icing sugar and presented on a nice plate account of my life. It is mostly good. But like anyone, there are some bad bits.
I haven’t decided whether I will change the focus of this blog. I don’t know yet whether I need that outlet and whether i need to write. Maybe I will just write posts and never actually hit the publish button.
What I do know is that right now, I don’t want to blog. I don’t want to come home after a full day at work and a 3 hour commute to start trying to come up with something witty or clever or pretty to post. I don’t want to spend my weekend in my kitchen doing the same thing when I could be spending it with those people who are important to me in person. Or my gorgeous dogs who never mind what kind of mood i am in but still go apeshit when I walk in the door.
THank you for all your visits and comments in the past 5 years or so. Who knows what the next steps are for Gracie’s Bakes? I don’t right now, but if that changes you’ll be the first to know.
See you on the flip side.
