A New Year; A New Blog

I was fortunate enough to have a job right out of college. I was a travel agent! I thought I had landed my dream job. I hoped I would someday get to travel. I assumed I would know the ins and outs of booking flights and hotels and would fulfill my dream of traveling the world! Ahem....then real life settled in. Sound familiar? Yeah. I found myself swamped in the summer season when everyone wanted to go on a cruise (note: cruise NOT flight) and bored to tears during the other seasons when everyone wanted to plan their own vacation (read: I still know nothing about booking flights). Fortunately, my boss was great. He understood that there wasn't enough to do, so he let me shop online and surf the Internet. (!) Unfortunately for me that meant my credit card bill went up (at least my closet was stocked!) but it also meant I had all the time in the world to look at food blogs and plan my cooking adventures.

Oh, those were sweet days. Of course, all good things come to an end... for this situation, it was my appreciation for a lack of deadline. As such, I eventually landed a new job. It was a great change, albeit my days of arriving to work, pouring a not-so-great cup of coffee and sitting down to a plethora of food blogs were over.

I always wonder why I did not start my own food blog during that time. I had plenty of time to work on it and I was cooking every meal for myself -- how could I not when I drooled over so many great options all day! However, I believe everything happens for a reason and whatever that reason may be I am starting my first food blog now; several years later.

Funny enough, my current job is stressful and exhausting. I already feel less motivated to come home and cook dinner. Yet here I am: thrilled to begin this process in reality -- not just in my head! I'm sure there will be times where the last thing I want to do is cook (and cook wholesomely) but I'm hoping this blog will be an encouragement for me to do so anyway.

Here's to cooking often and cooking well!
