Boo! Don’t be scared. It’s just me! 🎃👻🖤
I’m here, but not back to cookies. So many lovely (and a fair share of 😬🤨🤯) things have happened since I last posted. I have had a baby (our 4th), been a homeschool teacher (PTL that’s over), sold our house and bought a farm (I’m still local!), downsized within an inch of my sanity, started our kids in new schools (I have a middle schooler 🤦🏼♀️), started building a new house, and tried to keep our heads up amidst all of the stuff happening in the world.
If I’m honest, today has been one of the first times I’ve looked at cookies and even considered getting back into it. Our new (temporary) living situation doesn’t allow for much cookie making, but that won’t be forever. I’ve already picked out the biggest oven you can have in a house and planned cabinets specifically for my cookie cutters. Heck I even have a long term plan to build out a cookie studio in our barn.
All that is to say that I am thankful for this time for myself and my family. I’m grateful for all of the interest folks have shown in my cookies and know that when I do make a comeback it will be when I can pour myself into the creative process without sacrificing my work as Mama.
I am continually inspired by the work I see coming from the cookie community. I cannot wait to jump back in! Take care and be of good cheer. 💗💗💗
