This blog has been a dream of mine for so many years. It all started with a second Instagram account devoted to all the food I so lovingly made and photographed until it went cold. My photo techniques weren’t all that great to start and it was always sort of a side project I never really felt I was going to ever find the time to actually make a blog people would want to read.
As the years went on I started falling more in love with adding those final touches and thinking outside of the box with my ingredients or techniques. As my dietary needs changed, so did my Instagram and my desire to create this blog got stronger and stronger. I went to a life coach a few years ago who taught me a lot about work/life balance and accomplishing the things I truly want to do. I started writing down goals, setting deadlines for myself and getting things done but while working as a restaurant manager 50-60 hours a week I hardly had time to cook, let alone blog.
I started a new job a few months back that has me now working from home and a much more reasonable schedule. On January 1st, 2017 I sat down with a piece of paper to write out my goals for the year and there was an obvious one that immediately came to mind. This was the year I was going to create my blog and spend time accomplishing something I had too often told myself I would never be able to do.
Maybe people will follow it, maybe people won’t, but the satisfaction of achieving my goals pushes me forward. I hope this becomes everything I dream it will be.
