The last time I went on a bit of a blogging hiatus (one year ago), it was because I was pregnant and wanted to vomit every time I thought about Pennies on a Platter. This time, I'm not pregnant but other life changes are in full swing. We are moving! Ben recently accepted a job offer in Southern California, so we're packing our bags and our baby boy and heading west.
This is the biggest move we've made, so we're busy searching for places to live, scoping out moving options, packing up our belongings, and trying to spend as much time with our friends here as possible. We love where we live now, and have the best friends and church we could ask for, but we know we're being called to this next step of ministry for a purpose, which excites us to no end.
That being said, until we finish our move and get settled, I won't be blogging as often (as you can already tell). The timing is a bit bad, as I'm starting the baby food process with Judah and can not wait to share my favorite recipes. Some of the next upcoming posts may not be about food, but updates of our move instead. I've come to adore you, my readers, and definitely want to keep you posted!
In the meantime, I'd love to hear your favorite thoughts (food related or not) of California. Chicago is a great city, and I'll dearly miss it. So, to help me not miss Chicago so much, please share what you love about Southern California, or the West in general! 🙂
