Hi, Y’all! It feels different writing this because I have been on a short term hiatus for the past two weeks, and to make a semi-come back statement, I am saying that I am still here, and big things have been happening lately.
Big things really came up in our household and the most important is the one at the last part of this post. So lets just save the best for last and let me start with the rest, okay?
Firstly, I don’t want to start off negatively but I have been running low on inspiration the past weeks. It just happened in a snap: I don’t feel like browsing thru my favorite food blogs; I haven’t been feeling adventurous to try recipes and here is something big, hold your breath, I have been too tired to lift a spatula to bake. Major huh? I would think so because baking seems to make up 50% of this blog.
That might seem a weird thing to admit, but then I thought, If there is anything I would want this blog to be, that is for it be real. And if there is anything I owe you , my readers, that is the truth. And the truth is , baking and food photography seem to want to take a back seat for now.
Last Easter long weekend was a blast. Despite my lack of energy and enthusiasm, things came along to fuel me up somehow and got me on my feet . First, a friend of mine asked me to make three cakes for her family and those were the first official cake sales I have made. Second, a much awaited filming of an interview for a local TV show called Blog town finally happened in our home. I am both grateful and humbled by these two events that despite me being such a slacker and lazy girl , I got these two big things as rewards.
Here are is a snapshot from the shoot: ( I will do a separate post for this next week).
And the last thing and actually the most important BIG thing that happened, and probably the reason for my sudden apathy and lack of enthusiasm is my second pregnancy! Yes, yes, I am expecting again and I am beyond happy, excited and thankful. So my lack of energy, this strange thing that is happening to me- the sudden lack of motivation, they are all hormonal.
This happened during my first pregnancy. Before I knew I was pregnant, I lost all interest in my work, in my day to day routine and everything in general. So when this phenomena, together with constant fatigue and laziness set in the past weeks, I knew I had to take a pregnancy test. And I wasn’t dissapointed.
I am expecting our second child!
But the unwanted symptoms are here to stay for awhile.
And no matter how much I want to push myself or maybe feel bad about my lack of energy , I am just being nice to myself , knowing that this will pass and I need this time to slow down and really rest.
So there! A little bit of my life lately. And the baking and recipes, I am gonna try to make it up to you okay? but not now, maybe not yet.
Thank you for being here today! See you around!
