This hiatus from blogging wasn't planned; or even expected. I was in love with this new found outlet of expression one day, and then, pouf, it was gone- the passion, I mean. I was still cooking, trying out new recipes from fellow bloggers and taking pictures; I just wasn't writing. And then, my computer crashed, taking with it all my notes and pictures. A, meanwhile, had erased every picture from our camera card in preparation for our vacation to Bahamas. I took it as an omen to just sit back and re-evaluate my motive in starting to blog.
