Hey there, blogging world! It has been quite some time. When I decided to take a little break from the blog at the end of 2015, I didn’t really intend for it to be a 2 year break! Wow. I can’t believe it’s been TWO years. A lot has happened since I took that little break, and I am happy to be back!
I mentioned in my last post that we had recently purchased a house and were working on some home remodeling – we have come a long way! We still have a few rooms left to re-do, but this house is more like a home every day. And I can honestly say that I am loving it. It has been a slow journey, but it has been truly good. If y’all are interested, I may do a post or two to show you what we’ve done!
I also mentioned that I would still be baking while the blog was on hold, and I have been! Along with all the normal baking, I had my first bake sale at a vendor/craft fair. It was so much fun! I loved it. Definitely be looking for a post on that before too long.
Probably the biggest news that I have to share is that we added the sweetest baby girl to our family in the spring of 2017! We are smitten. The Lord has truly blessed us, and He is teaching me daily through this parenting journey. We joined a new church family about a year and a half ago, and they have been so encouraging, insightful, and supportive through all of these firsts. I decided to leave my job as an engineer to stay home with our little one, and it has been the best decision! Our days are crazy and the nights can be long, but we are loving it. 🙂
Y’all. I’m excited to be bringing the blog back. I’m still sorting out what things will look like over here at The Little Blue Mixer, but the focus of the blog will still be baking. I probably won’t have a new post for you every week, but I will try to keep them frequent. I may even throw in a few posts about life in general! Most of all, I’m really looking forward to having some accountability to be creative. That may sound funny, but I know that I am much more likely to accomplish something if I have someone holding me accountable. So that’s you! If you have something you want me to bake – let me know and I’ll give it a try!
I hope you all have been well while I’ve been out! My absence was a much needed break, but I’m excited to be back! Here we go, 2018!
