Busy Bee….

So, if I were going to make an analogy regarding how I’ve been feeling since August, it would be this: I feel like one of those miniature marshmallows in hot chocolate. Fighting really hard to keep bobbing at the top, but you can see that they’re slowing dissolving into the big cup o’ chocolate they’re immersed in. As I said, I am the marshmallow and life is the hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is yummy and wonderful and great to be surrounded in. But, it’s kinda taking a whole lot out of me. I didn’t realize that working a full time job, falling madly in love and going to school (for the first time in 16 years) would be so time consuming!

I love The Hedonist Cook, and it is a creative outlet that makes me super happy and inspired. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find a lot of time to work on it right now. And I feel so bummed and guilty and embarrassed that I get a little bit of a stomach ache every time I think about it. All of this came spilling out of me tonight while I ate (delicious) pumpkin pie with my Mom. And as usual, she gave me the best advice ever. Which was to sit down, suck it up and write what I’m writing.

My hope is that if I stop feeling so weird about the website all the time, maybe I’ll work on it when I stumble on free time. Or, maybe life will continue to get super great and busy and I won’t be able to post anything until I get a break in school. Who knows. The one thing I do know is that The Hedonist Cook is not dead or even in a coma. It’s taking a nap, or is on vacation. Something nice like that. And I still love emails and comments or suggestions. Really, feedback from ya’ll is one of the biggest things that inspires me. Love you more than homemade cheesecake, for reals.

    Hi sweetheart,
    I just discovered you on YouTube when needing to figure out a better way to make apple dumplings. Read your post here and know exactly how you feel. I think finding the balance of all the events in life, is one of the hardest parts of life. I hope your lil’ marshmallows don’t melt so fast soon, because I know you can accomplish great things with this dream of a website you have going.
    Take Care and God Bless
