Sometimes I think too much about change before it happens and I let my brain spin.spin.spin.

Currently, I’m mostly freaking out about winter and the fact that I don’t own (Ugg) boots (yet). Real life.

And then I realized…if this is my big life worry, this life is seriously good.

I’ve been reading this over and over again these days. It’s my current feel good verse.

‘For know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’

Jeremiah 29:11

Also…I’ve realized I’ve changed. Without freaking out about it. (Which is ridiculously good.) My focus is different. I’m not here obsessively every day. I sometimes make dinner after it’s dark, and don’t take pictures, even though I know what I’m eating is worth it.

The truth is this, I kind of love my new job. And yesterday, after a lot of stress at work, I went for a run and baked an apple pie with my husband. It was perfect.

What I want to say is this, I love you. I love this place. But it’s not my number one like it used to be. And I don’t have a recipe (again) today. I will next week (promise), but I don’t today. I hope that’s okay. I hope you’ll stick around even though things are just a little different.

And, I hope there’s doughnuts in your weekend. Those kind of weekends are my favorite.

It makes me happy to think that in the forever, we’re going to stand shoulder to shoulder as sisters; not just in worship, but in baking and cooking the most amazing goodies. Congrats on a full and wonderful life!

Living life is much better than living life through/for your blog.
Enjoy yourself!

I’m glad to hear your life is so full and well rounded. I enjoy reading your blog, so I’ll definitely be here whenever you choose to write. But carpe diem!

It’s good to have a life outside your blog! I’m sure your readers will still stick around – no rules to say you have to post recipes constantly :)

P.s. That’s one of my favorite Bible verses – it’s so uplifting and comforting :)

I know what you mean. I love blogging so much but since getting a new job and finding love, I just don’t make blogging as much as a priority.

I so relate. SO. Love this place and will absolutely stick around.
