While you know how much I enjoy blogging, I am opting to take a few weeks off. Since so much of blogging is about being transparent, I want to tell you that the pause I am taking is due to the fact that last week we had a fire in our home. We are all fine, though admittedly somewhat shaken up. We are unable to live in our home for the time being, but we consider ourselves very lucky that we are all OK. While I managed to persevere and blog through our kitchen remodel with limited resources, I think it is time to pull the ‘uncle’ card. At this point, we have to eat out, so I am not creating meals in the kitchen. While I realize it seems like a dream come true to many to eat out, if you know me, you know that more than eating out, I L-O-V-E to eat in! To be able to work with the freshest seasonal ingredients to create delectable magic is one of the things that makes me happy. So please understand why that at this time I am going to step back…just for a short while, I hope see you blogside by the 4th of July.
