Why don’t I have the time for my first one? Partly because I don’t make the time, really. That’s the first answer to that question, the honest one. I love my food blog, I do, but I unfortunately don’t have the money to eat out often enough at new local foodie hotspots to be writing new reviews once or twice a week, and I find it hard to find the energy and time to develop, make, photograph, and then write about a recipe more than once a week. Okay, fine, sometimes more than once a month. But still, during all the time I know I should be working on my blog (it’s a hobby…why do I feel like I should be doing anything, anyway?), I also want to be writing. I write posts in my head, but most of the time only the beginning of those posts, the part that has more to do with what is going on in my life than the food.
So, here I am, starting a new blog to focus primarily on those posts that I write in my head, those posts that will focus on more than just food, but that will still hopefully appeal to those of you reading. Posts that will appeal to you, I hope, because you identify with some aspect of them. My love of food, of cooking, baking, and of course, eating, is only a small part of my life, especially lately, and so I am hoping to connect with others through all of my passions and life experiences in addition to that one hobby.

How will I categorize this blog? I’m not sure yet. I’m sure to talk about being a mom an awful lot, so maybe it’ll be a mommy blog, but I’m also going to talk about Disney, and books that I love, and my hobbies, and things that, in my ADD nature, catch my obsessive interest and cause me to ramble incessantly with either praise or criticism. All of the things that, at the end of the day, contribute to my mommyhood but also make me so much more than a mom. So who knows. For now, I’m just going to write. I’ll think about fitting into a box later.
