Time for a long-overdue explanation! It’s been quite a while since I posted. There have been a number of reasons for this; for one thing, I’ve had a number of paid writing gigs that have eaten up my blogging time. For another, I got promoted and have been incredibly busy at work– and I’m working a late shift now, so Joe does most of the cooking.
But the biggest reason for my absence is that I’m working on a different kind of project:
Joe and I are expecting our first child, a baby girl! She’s due on my birthday, November 15 (inshallah). I’m six months along and everything is going well so far. It’s been quite a ride so far! Pregnancy has been physically and emotionally demanding, so blogging has taken a back seat– not to mention those four weeks when I couldn’t eat anything but crackers and tacos (weird).
I’m going to keep the posting light for now, but I hope to make use of this space in the future as my life changes.
Love to you all!
