Easy Dinner Breadsticks

I was not really sure if I wanted to share the reason for my absence.

On one hand I felt like I owed you some sort of explanation, but on the other hand I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to talk about it. In case you didn’t notice I recently took a unexpected month long break without any type of warning. Honestly, I didn’t think about if you would notice, I sat down several times to write and just could not bring myself to hit publish, and I even had several recipes that had been made and the pictures left unedited.

The truth of the matter is…life happened.

I mean real life happened and it hit me pretty hard. At this point it is not even about whether I owe you an explanation or not as much as it is about me getting back to normal or some version of normalcy. I just couldn’t come on here and just talk about all of the fun and great things that happen in my life because that is really not real. I am a real person with real problems and stuff happening. And it really is not fair for me to only give you the good without sharing the bad/real stuff that happens in my life as well. I feel as though we are close enough at this point that I can share all sides of my life with you.

So real life stuff…my grandfather passed away a little over a month ago…I did mention it in this post when I briefly took a break to deal with that. During the process of dealing with that my uncle that had been very ill decided that he wanted to go home and enjoy the time that he had left. This decision resulted in him leaving us a month after my grandfather and my family found themselves pulling out those black outfits much sooner than expected to wear to yet another service to say our goodbyes and pay our respects to a person that was so dearly loved. That ended…but a couple days later…unexpectedly…my cousin passed. Again…black outfits…service….goodbye…respect…dearly love. Another relative gone way too soon added with little time to recover from the previous.

Truth is blogging and social media was not all that important to me at the time. I did not concern myself with any numbers, created absolutely no content, and I was/am okay with that. I actually needed that. I hope you can understand that. Thank you for still being here…

    I’m so sorry. That’s a lot to deal with. Real life is so much more important than blogging, but I’m glad you’re back.

    LaKita,
    I am so sorry for you family’s loss. I cannot even begin to imagine what a hard time you and your family went through this past month, my heart aches for y’all. It just doesn’t seem fair. I’m so sorry. I completely understand needing and wanting time to decompress and take in life. I’m glad you did that for yourself. I’m also glad you’re back. Sometimes writing and creating helps.
    Sending you healing hugs!!
    XOXO
