Goodness gracious it’s been a long time. Let me just clean these, uh, cobwebs off the ol’ blog.
What’s my login again?
There’s lots of reasons people take breaks from blogging – burnout, lack of motivation, life changes, lots of stuff, ya feel me?
And for a person with undiagnosed ADHD like me (heh), you can imagine what it’s like when you have 320 tabs open in your brain, and you don’t know where to look next. Ha.
First, I needed a fresh bloggie makeover. I was so fortunate to work with Ana Maria Ciolacu of Visual Pixie. I found her on Etsy and she’s in ITALLLY!? WHAAA?
*my blog has been Italian designed?* YUHESS.
I AM SO CRAZY EXCITED about my new blog banner! I’ve refined my vision.
The Hill Country Cook is a little half hippie, half southern, ya know?
Born in California, but got my little bootie to Texas just as fast as I could.
(Hey, my momma’s got roots here, so I get some cred, k?)
It perfectly captures my sign-off “Peace, Love, and Cooking, Y’all!”
ANYhow, so, girl has a fresh new blog, and a fresh new life.
Well, what’s new with me, you ask?
- We bought a house. Wow. Being a homeowner is crazy. Exciting, but so full of stress, too. Latest project: Operation National Lampoon’s Christmas Light Special.
2. We got married! Best. Day. Of. My. Life. Period.
3. I got a new job! I’m a middle school counselor, and I get to… COUNSEL KIDS. My current position doesn’t have a lot of the paperwork associated with my counseling jobs in the past. I LOVE IT.
AND I love the people I work with. How many people get to say that?
Also spread out in that year and a half, we got a dog, went to Chicago, went to Costa Rica, I accidentally dyed my hair black, & went to Thailand, San Francisco, and New Orleans.
Wow. I guess I do have a lot to write about.
~ Peace, Love, and fresh starts, y’all!
