I’ve contemplated this post for a while.
I believe that change is a good thing. Healthy, natural, it’s what helps us grow up and defines who we are. I welcome change.
For the most part.
I think change is easier when you know that other people support you, adapt to whatever is changing about you, sometimes changing a bit of themselves as well.
That’s where you all come in.
I want to talk about a specific change; namely, the genre of this blog.
It’s kind of happening already. During the summer, I spend more time dancing than eating. And in reality, once September rolls around in a few short weeks, there will not be much time in my schedule for cooking. As my dad would say, “Marie, school comes first.” Thanks Dad. (He’s been saying that since I was in pre-school.) But he’s right. Between grad school, dance, work… cooking won’t come daily.
While food and cooking is a huge part of my life and one of my favorite pastimes, I enjoy an abundance of other things as well. With my re-found love of the gym and working out, my passion for dance and my aspiring running, along with my busy life in general, I am finding more and more that I wish to tell you about. And as long as it’s cool with all of you, I’ll continue to keep this slight change in my blog’s line up.
Will I be abandoning cooking/baking completely? Absolutely not.
Will it happen a little less often? Sadly, yes.
In turn, I hope to turn this blog into a jack-of-all-trades forum where I talk about whatever comes to my mind. Sometimes it will include food, especially the occasional baked goods I will be providing my DanceWorks friends. It will also feature my fitness/running endeavors, school and work updates and of course, dance.
So I pose the ultimate question to you, my readers….is this all okay with you? Will you still find time in your busy lives to read me if I talk about cooking a bit less and life a bit more?
I would love your feedback and appreciate all of your support. Thank you so much for giving me a reason to write and keep my life documented in Chocolate & Wine. This blog is dedicated to you.
