Where do you start a post like this one…
This is hard in some ways and easy in others. Hard because I’ve put so much of myself into this space, yet easy because I have not put enough. There are so many things about me that I haven’t shared with all of you. My faith in Jesus and my family & everyday life being just two of them. I guess that’s ok, I mean this is a food blog after all. However, as time goes by those other parts become a bigger and bigger part of me and I’ve come to the realisation that I’ve been living too much on the internet and not enough in life.
My passion for food has become stifled by blog posts and photographs. Although I do still love these things, my food journey has focussed on them instead of on the reason that I first loved food. To revel in the process of creating food that will make those I love happy.
Having come to this realisation, I’ve decided to take a step back. I’m not sure what the outcome will be, but it seems a necessary step on the bigger road of my life. Giving my passion for food time to develop on it’s own terms and allowing my identity to be shaped by the other things in my life.
Perhaps not… we’ll have to wait and see.
