It's been five years since my last blog post. Five years full of life changes, work changes, kids growing up, kids moving out...and five years full of really amazing outdoor food experiences.
Look at the date -- we've been under a COVID-19 shelter in place order for five weeks now. It's taken five weeks to realize I have five years' worth of photos, trips, menus, and food about which to write. It's not like I suddenly have a lot of extra time on my hands -- quite the opposite. I'm sewing my ass off, I'm giving skating lessons via Zoom, we just finished a huge kitchen remodel, and we're navigating the waters of an empty nest much too soon on the horizon. I think what has pushed me toward restarting this old blog is just a change in perspective and a solidification in my head of what we value in this household.
