It's been a long time friends

My last post-it was over a year ago.

What a difference a year makes.  We have had so many changes occur in our lives over the last 12 months, it seems a little surreal.

Our Drama Queen started college...and dropped out. She met a man that may some day be her husband. She moved out.

Our Hermit Crab is in her senior year of college. She is deciding on her Master's program. She got engaged. We will have a son.

We lost my husband's wonderful father, though we are thankful we had him much longer than the doctors ever said we would.  We had the most beautiful day of the summer to have a party to celebrate his life.

We became empty nesters....and we are digging it.  We just pick up and go on the boat, take the street rod for a cruise, or drive up to the UP to celebrate a birthday without having reservations or a plan.

It is awesome.

I also lost my love of creating food. Be it the weird hours that I work or the repetition of 24 years of doing it-my inspiration was gone.

I think it may be back.

Welcome back.....I've always enjoyed your posts and wondered what the heck had happened to you. I know about losing inspiration for cooking and baking. I don't nearly post as much as I used to but it kind of comes and goes....
