The State of Things

Y’all, this is the state of my kitchen right now. If you know me well IRL, then you know walking into this room shoots my anxiety levels through the roof. This is also a pretty accurate depiction of my brain right now; there’s a lot going on and a whole lot of mess.

Side note (because I always have one): We’re hoping to start a kitchen “face lift” soon, so this will make one heck of a before picture. Literally, anything we do can only make this disaster look better.

This summer has been good. We’ve spent hours on the lake with friends and family, had long and lazy summer dinners from the grill (my favorite kind of dinner), and wandered through the Canadian Rockies for a blissful week.

This summer has brought some challenges as well. Two friends lost children, both in tragic accidents. My dad was diagnosed with cancer. The prevalence of hatred in our country seems to be growing. Additional responsibilities have been added to my plate, and I’m struggling to handle them with grace.

We’ve unintentionally stepped away from the blog to deal with life. We’ll call it a summer break. However, I’ve got a backlog of posts from June, and I’m planning to share a couple of more recent posts too.

Thanks for checking in with us. Let us know what we missed with you the past couple of months! I’m off to clean my kitchen.
