Back in October, I took a trip to a pumpkin patch. It was such a beautiful day, the leaves were still gorgeously vibrant, some of them even still green. I wanted to tell you all about it right away, and I wanted to bake something delicious with all the pumpkins I had picked out. The green ones, the orange ones, the white ones. I had recipe ideas, namely a hazelnut-pumpkin-ginger tart that I could practically taste in my mind.
But then life got busy. One week turned into 2 and then somehow it was over a month after the fact, and not only had I not made anything with those pumpkins, I felt like I had forgotten how to blog. I wondered if I even wanted to anymore. My 3 year blog anniversary passed (happy belated birthday, h&j!) and I did nothing to commemorate it. I was feeling a bit disconnected from this process - even though I love it dearly.
Today though, I received an email from a friend, a friend I met through this blog. Reading her words, I was reminded why I love doing this. I love sharing my recipes & images, I love connecting with you all, (nothing makes me smile like getting an email from someone who has made a recipe & loved it) I love the creative process. I was reminded that this place is a piece of me. A piece I’m not ready to part with.
The leaves are gone, the pumpkins are in the compost bin, and I’m ready for a new season. I’ll be here soon with recipes. Good, creative ones, I hope. I’ve been creating more and more of my own, and I’m excited to share them with you.
See you soon. xo.
