In the four years since I began this blog, my life outside of blogging has had quite a few transformations as well. I trained for and completed a marathon. I overworked my body and dealt with running injuries on multiple occasions (I think I’ve finally figured this one out now!). I started and finished a Master’s degree. I traveled in just about every direction within the United States. I moved out of our duplex and into a single family home in a neighborhood we love. Through it all, much like with The Sweets Life, I’ve worked to stay authentic, living according to our faith and family values, learning and growing every step of the way.
Starting tomorrow, I’m going to cut back to blogging four days a week—Monday, Wednesday, and Friday will be food posts like always, and I’ll keep up the Odds & Ends feature on Saturday. Sometimes I'll probably swap out a Saturday post for a travel/restaurant post. Although I’m still, for the most part, cooking just as much as always and have plenty of recipes to share, I am tired and don’t have the time or energy to spend so many hours on the computer in the evenings. I figure that will only be more true when Baby McLaury arrives!
I’m hoping that fewer posts will allow me to up the quality and work on some behind the scenes blog stuff that I never seem to get to. In reality, I probably still won’t get to it, and I’m okay with that! Much as I love this blog, my family comes first and life moves too quickly to spend all of my free hours behind a computer screen! I anticipate that the blog will continue to evolve and grow and transform as time goes on, and I hope that all of you will keep reading and cooking alongside of me! Thank you for stopping by, whether you’ve been here since yesterday or four years ago…YOU are the reason I do this!
