Dating in 2014

To be honest, I don't know what direction this blog will take in 2014. I've mentioned that cutting back to 4 posts a week has been a good thing for me and for our family, but when we welcome our little one (NEXT MONTH, holy crap!), I know life is going to continue to shift and change and I'll have to adapt. Family and my full-time job will always come before The Sweets Life, but my hope is to keep things rolling here as well. How this plays out remains to be seen, but I'm grateful for my readers who stick around despite the fact that there are plenty of bigger, better food blogs out there!
Long time readers know that I've enjoyed having a "challenge" to fulfill and post about each year...the challenges of the last four years are listed below. This year, with full understanding that things are about to change big time, I'm using the challenge to keep my priorities in line. Dating in 2014 is exactly how it sounds, except it's my husband I'm going to date.
So many people have mentioned the importance of still focusing on your marriage once kids come along and we'll use this challenge as a forcing function. Each month for the next year, Ryan and I will go on a date which will be recorded here on this blog. I'm sure the dates will vary--some at home, some out to eat, all with food in one way or another (hence the tie to The Sweets Life!). Hopefully you'll enjoy the peek into our lives (and more restaurant reviews), and we'll enjoy the quality time with one another!
