I haven’t posted in ages, but I’ve been busy! Busy moving, changing positions in my company, meeting new friends, spending time with family and trying to settle into a new slower paced life.
I have been cooking…on an electric stove. After six months, I think I may be getting the hang of it. I miss our old gas stove terribly. The good news is there’s a gas line in the basement that runs under the stove. Kitchen dreaming!
The decision to move happened quickly and quite unexpectedly, but here we are! We fell in love with our house the minute we set foot inside. It reminds us a lot of our apartments in Chicago – hardwood floors, plaster walls and plenty of character. There are things we’d always dreamed of having too – a washer and dryer, garage, a yard, a porch, gardening space…
We saw more snow this winter than I think either of us have seen in many years. Until recently, we’d forgotten that we have outdoor space to use. I’m dreaming of patio furniture, a grill and fresh vegetables from our own garden! One thing at a time though. We still have things to unpack and pictures to hang.
I need to get back to sharing recipes soon. Hopefully summer will bring longer days and more free time. So, here I am. Back in Michigan sixteen years after I left. I guess I need to come up with a new blog name! Any suggestions?!?
