Life Update!

Hi Friends,

Anna here.  I just wanted to update you a little bit on what’s going on in the world of the girl behind The Little Blue Mixer. 🙂 Life is busy.  Very, very good, but busy.

I have decided to take a step back from the blogging world for a few months.  It really makes me sad, but I think it’s best for right now.  This does NOT mean that I am going away and never coming back to blogging!  No!  I’m just taking a much-needed, semi-extended break to rest, enjoy the holidays, re-group, and work on some other projects.  I hope to post every now and then, just not every week as I have been for the last year and a half.

As for those side projects I will be working on… Hubs and I purchased our first house this year!  I’m really excited to take some time and make it into our home.  So far we have remodeled one room (happy dance!) and we are working on the office next.  After the office, we are headed downstairs to the main living area, dining room, and then KITCHEN!  Saving the best for last. 🙂  We both have so many ideas and can’t wait to see the finished product.  I may have to share some of our house re-do photos with you along the way.  I’ll just be over here trying my best to channel my inner Joanna Gaines. 😀

Lastly, I need to let y’all know just how much I appreciate you.  You are the best.  Really.  Thank you so much for following along with my baking journey.  Your sweet encouragement and helpful tips are so appreciated.  I will still be baking up a storm in the background, and I want to hit the road running when I meet back up with you in 2016!

Until next time, happy baking!

Anna
