I long for those long summer days with kids running in and out of the house with wet feet, looking for towels and popsicles. And I miss those sleeping wet kids on a sweltering afternoon, sprawled on the couch. Nothing can stir that exhausted post swim nap. So here I am. They closed Williams Sonoma over a year ago, so no job. I have my cookies, but I really hate being trapped indoors all day on these gorgeous days. My pool will finally get filled tomorrow after a long repair job, and i have to just enjoy the moment for what it is. And I have to write. It really is part of who I am.
My first blog is here. Boy have things changed since then. Nic was just 2 months past high school graduation. Christina was starting her sophomore year of high school. Over the last 7 years, I have documented events at the Air Force Academy, a transition to civilian college at OU, high school volleyball, going to Millsaps, lots of birthdays, holidays, work events and loss. I have baked with groups, I started my 50 chefs for 50 years (started, but no where near finished!), I have cooked, grilled, cleaned, sewn and of course baked loads of sugar cookies. I have come a long way on my sugar cookies in 7 years and 3 cookie conventions!!!
So here is to today, and new beginnings. Fresh starts, new recipes, new cookie designs, and who knows what else! Please stay tuned. I am always so humbled when I get a comment or an email from a reader. Here we go. What are you waiting for? Oh, me! I'll be right back!
