a sabbatical

farm fresh eggs

I’m kind of in disbelief that I have been writing here for almost two years.  It started out as a creative outlet and a way to record the things I was cooking and baking.  And while it has stayed the same, my life has changed so much since then.  But all this online presence has added up to a bit of stress, and I’ve increasingly felt the need to unplug.  There are some days where I want to completely disappear from the internet.  But then there are days where I feel so inspired by the things I read online and the way it can open up a window for me to write in.

But more and more recently I’ve wanted to go away.  I’ve come to this space out of obligation, and really that doesn’t do much for any of us.  When I’m trying to think of new things to cook just so that I can write about them here instead of cooking what I naturally want to cook, my creativity suffers.  I’ve been trying to force it too often recently.

And with so much going on in life right now, I’m going to take a little step back.  I’ll probably still be poking my head out over here from time to time, but I want to take a little break from feeling the need to constantly have something going food-wise.  And by doing so, I hope that in a few weeks or a month I will come back with fresh inspiration and be truly and utterly excited about the things I have to share with you.

See you then.

    I totally understand the feeling of needing to take a break. I hope you find that it recharges your creative batteries and I look forward to seeing you back here.
