Finding a purpose!

I've struggled since our return from France.  Struggled to figure out how to keep blogging.  Because, I wasn't sure what I wanted to blog about back in the States.  I thought I'd just keep sharing my daily adventures, stateside...but they seem so darn pedestrian.  And, it seems wierd to post about what's happening everyday, when I see most of you everyday...or talk to you.  When I was in France, I felt like I was so far away...and since I didn't call anyone when I was over there (except the very occasional call to Susanna to check in on the store)...I had a lot to share in my blog.  Back at home...not so much.

However, inspiration has finally struck.  It's silly that it took 53 days of being home before it finally dawned on me.  Especially since the inspiration is something that I have been doing almost everyday anyway through my Facebook postings.

What do I post about almost everyday?  What do I appear fixated on?  What do I love to think about and plan for and do?  There's one little word that sums it up perfectly.  Are you ready?  That's right, say it with me... FOOD!  Yep, I love it.  Everything to do with it.  The act of creating great meals (and simple meals), the excitement of finding a new ingredient or new recipe, the joy of sharing my creations and information with friends and family.

So, I'm going to blog about my food adventures, and boy do I have a lot of them!  I won't blog about every food adventure...that would be too much, I think.  But, I will blog about the interesting ones and some of the more mundane ones.  I hope you'll come along on this FOOD centered journey.  I hope you'll enjoy what I share and feel inspired.  Inspired to share a meal with a friend, to cook a recipe that you've never tried, to eat at a restaurant that's new to you, to get a little more enjoyment from what our bodies require us to do everyday.  I know that I'm feeling very inspired!

Sounds right to me, Steph. Maybe it should be Jumping Off the Cliff, on to a plate!
