Let’s get straight to the point: I stopped writing…for months. A lot has happened since then.
After I graduated from Trocaire College, I got a job. That full-time job made it hard for me to continue writing. It took me a while to realize how much I missed writing. It’s my “thing”. It has been my “thing” since I was in elementary school and would write short stories for fun. I was getting anxious sitting in that cubicle all day at my 9 to 5. I started to forget details. I began to realize that I wasn’t giving my full attention to people when they were talking to me.
I finally realized that my creative mind was going bonkers. I wasn’t expressing my creative side anymore. So…I quit my job.
I realize that many people are confused as to why I would quit a job where I was getting a steady income. I just wasn’t happy anymore. I was introduced to Stella & Dot through a friend – a business that sells beautiful, high-quality jewelry and other accessories. I decided to run my own business with Stella & Dot. I have been loving that! I will get into that later…
For my dedicated readers: remember Justin, my boyfriend? We’re still going strong! The main reason I started following the Paleo diet was because Justin’s doctor diagnosed him with a gluten intolerance. We were preparing and cooking these all-natural meals and snacks for months, and he was still suffering from digestive issues. After weeks of trying to convince him to see a new doctor, he finally did. He had gastrointestinal testing done and…guess what?! Justin NEVER had a gluten intolerance! He was suffering from GERD, an infection, and an ulcer, though. This was all eventually tamed by medication. Wooooo! Now he can eat whatever he wants.

We do still maintain a healthy diet, it’s just not as strict as it used to be…which leads me to this announcement: my blog will not be a Paleo diet-based blog anymore. I’m so sorry if this is disappointing to my readers! What this blog WILL contain includes:
- Healthy recipes that I’ve made
- Not-so-healthy recipes that I’ve made
- Recipes I found on Pinterest that I think YOU should try
- Crafts that I’ve…crafted
- Health & Fitness
- Life hacks
- Life experiences
- …and who knows what else!
I just know that I am excited to be writing again. I couldn’t resist – I HAD to come back! Please follow my journey as I open this new chapter in my life as an Entrepreneur. Stay tuned for my first recipe: the Apple Cider Dump Cake.
This is one of those not-so-healthy recipes that I was previously talking about. It is so delicious though, just practice safe portion control and your jeans will still fit just fine. It’s a forkful of autumn in your mouth. Let it happen.
See you soon(er than 6 months),
