It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a life update. With all the things that have happened this year and everyone going through so much, it never felt like the right time. But as I count down the last few hours of 2020, I wanted to take a moment to share some personal news and shed some light on some of the changes that happened to the blog this past year and what is to come.
Earlier this year we welcomed a new addition to our family. A baby boy!
I never made a pregnancy announcement, so I know this news comes as a surprise for most of you. As much as I wanted to share the news earlier, I am a very superstitious person and didn’t want to say anything until it had actually happened.
My pregnancy had several scares along the way and all the way up until the final moments, so it made it hard for us to simply enjoy the experience or share the good news. But we are very fortunate that things did work out and he is everything we could have wanted and more and he’s brought us so much joy.
I might share more about the journey at a later time. I’ve debated back and forth whether I should or whether I should keep things just about the food. And on that note…
My limited amount of time is why I’ve cut back on the number of new posts published each week and why most of my recipes are quick and easy ones with minimal ingredients since I have to squeeze in all my recipe testing during baby naps. In 2021 I hope to continue to share more easy recipes, healthier recipes and a few more complicated recipes when I have the time.
San Diego Dining
My San Diego dining posts have been very sparse and it’s not because we haven’t been eating out. We continue to check out new restaurants and support local businesses via takeout. However, with the constant changing of status for restaurants, I haven’t wanted to write a post about an experience that may no longer be accurate by the time I get around to publishing. So I’ve mainly been sharing my dining experiences through Instagram stories, since that platform allows me to share near real time. I plan on continuing to share over on Instagram but also hope to do full posts regularly on the blog again in the future.
Trader Joe and Costco Hauls
I put a temporary pause on my grocery hauls but also hope to continue them at some point in 2021.
