It has been 3 weeks since my last post; all the while feeling guilty about not writing, cooking, and photographing for my blog. It wasn’t that I didn’t have things to do – we had home renovations going; took a trip to West Palm Beach; I was teaching art; I attended a 3 day Atlanta Food Photography Workshop: and lastly I had the privilege to be the sous chef for Laura Vein (she has a wonderful food blog – Sweet Treats: a baking blog. This is a must read and try the recipes, they are out-of-this-world) at another wonderful Food Photography workshop in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
After all the activity I was struggling to return to my routine of creating, writing, and photographing. I kept saying to myself – today is the day I will start again – then I would busy myself and guess what, a day would go by then a week.
What has brought me back from this slump – my quiet time for this morning. While reading, my guilt and feelings of inadequacy where broken. I was inspired. The pages were all about being spontaneous; take some time to enjoy life and the good things that come your way. Take the time to be a Mary and not always be a Martha. Enjoy the special things that come into your life; the work will still be their when you return.
As I was reading I realized I should not feel guilty for participating in all the wonderful things that had come my way. And now I am ready to get back to it – writing, cooking, and sharing photographs of wonderful recipes. I really do love to create, write, cook, and photograph food. My hope is that I make other people happy too.
The recipe today is a beautiful, buttery melt in your mouth cookie. This is a great cookie to have with your morning coffee, at tea time, a sit and take a moment for yourself time.
