on failure and success
I recently got an email from a site I follow entitled "Have you Ever Failed at Anything?" Preach it. Before having a kid I probably would have found it hard to admit much failure. I was on top of things and loved getting them done, not on time, ahead of time. Now I feel like I drop the ball all the time. But do I really?

...the thing that keeps me going is realizing that with each failure, comes a success.So, I haven't been great at posting recipes, the whole reason I started this blog. But here's the thing, I'm growing a baby, a recipe that takes serious hard work and is completely out of my control. I'm also raising a very active little boy- one of the greatest blessings of my life.
And for me, the successes (especially this one) is far more important than any failure.
So, there you have it - I've failed quite miserably at keeping in touch with you - but I've succeeded in being a mother of two babies. And that's a big deal!!
I've had to let go of looking at other bloggers thinking I should ditch this thing all together, start a new site that will surely look more impressive, or better yet get jealous and envious of people I don't even know and angry at them wondering when the heck they have time to read books, take amazing pictures, make amazing food, edit all those pictures, raise kids, homeschool, etc etc etc.
I'm having a blogging reset. I really want this space to be inspired by what lb's good spoon is dishing up not just on the table, but in my day to day life. This site has evolved into that and it's here to stay.
So, thanks for sticking with me, reading, commenting, and being excited for us in this new season of our family's life!
