So, hi. It's been awhile. In fact, I haven't said "hi" since last year (har har). But, really, I've been absent and I know it.
It turns out that an absent spouse does not, in fact, mean more blogging as I thought it would. You see, Mr Official Taster, was in Stockholm (yup, in Sweden) for five weeks. He left in mid-November and returned right before Christmas.
I had plans, people. I was going to blog a lot and take Roomba on a lot of long walks and Christmas-ify the apartment and redecorate and generally Super Single Woman it up. I tried to tackle blog things, really, I did. I have some recipes drafted without photos and some photos waiting for recipes. I thought about posting, and I felt guilty for not. Plans sort of evaporated; you see, a household that formerly functioned with two (alleged) adults doesn't just simplify itself for one. One tired-all-the-time-full-time-baker-in-the-chaotic-season adult. It was an educational five weeks, because, as it turns out, I can't do it all, all by myself, all of the time. I think that's a good lesson to learn heading into a new year.
So I'm going to finish up my vacation, guilt free, and then come back next week to start my fourth (!!) year of blogging. If you need some virtual warm breezes to cheer up your (snowy?) January, follow me on Instagram @ ShortandSweets
What did you learn in 2012?
