Monday Stuff: Where have I been?

Sigh, I guess I have some explaining to do. 

My heart has been so sad the last few weeks, as I have been completely unable to work on my blog, create new content, or recipes for everyone! This blog is my passion, and it killed me to not be around for it. 

Truth is, I have been in excruciating pain for a little over two weeks. I am not ready to share all of my health details publicly yet, but unfortunately, I have some health issues that left me bedridden for almost a full week. 

It is directly related to how I treated my body on vacation. Unfortunately, in addition to my food allergies, I am discovering that there are other foods/beverages that cause flare ups. Flare ups equal not moving much, missed days of work, tears, dramatic calls to my mother for medical advice and my boyfriend doing everything in his power to make my life a little easier. I have some follow-up doctors appointments this summer, and when I am ready to share the full details of my medical issues, I will share it on this blog. I truly believe that talking about issues helps lessen the stigma, but I am just not quite ready to share.

I know it sounds ominous, just know that it is a skin condition, and no, I am not in serious trouble, but it is a condition that causes a severe amount of pain and waiting. 

So you know, that sucks. 

But, good news is, I am on the mend and ready to get back to my normal schedule! And even though I wasn't able to physically work on anything, I did have a great deal of time to THINK about the direction of the blog. And...

You guys. I am so excited. I just can't hide it. I am about to lose control and I think I like it. It is too late to dance, but I would. Because the stuff I have planned, I believe everyone will LOVE. At least, I hope everyone will! Without giving much away before I post the first series, I will say that it involves food all around the country.

I am pretty sure I overwhelmed Jake this week by chattering about it for hours and hours to him. So suffice to say, I am ready to get started on this new series! I believe it will take over about 1/3rd of the content on here, so I really hope everyone enjoys it! 

I do also have some incredible recipes coming to the blog ASAP, luckily I got a lot of work done before I became bedridden. El oh el. Bedridden. I know it isn't funny, but it sounds more relaxing than my last two weeks actually were. 

So stay tuned for some amazing, NEW, content coming your way! 

(I did not mean for that to sound like a commercial, I am a little rusty after a couple of weeks!)
