39 out of 40 posts. OK, I haven't quite reached my goal yet. But the day is still young. And I'm making a ham so I'll be sure to post pics later.
What have I learned from this experiment? For one thing, committing to something every day is really tough. Especially when you're the working mother of a soon-to-be toddler. Things don't always go as planned. For instance yesterday, I didn't post because I spent most of the day making a cheesecake for today's brunch. Today when I did the big "cheesecake reveal" (opening the springform pan) I discovered that the crust was black-black. I made it out of graham crackers, not Oreos (almost said grammy-grahams; forgot I'm not talking to L.E. here). Needless to say, cheesecake will not be my brunch-date today. I had to bust into the for-emergencies-only Ghiradelli caramel brownie mix. What does this have to do with being a mom? Nothing really. Except being aware that you always have to have a backup plan just in case. And what constitutes a brownie emergency? Uhhh.....
The biggest thing I've learned is how much I love writing. I've always written a bit here and there but this is the first time I've fully committed to writing and embraced it whole-heartedly. I know a lot of my musings have been complain-y and I've worn my insecurities on my sleeves. But it's felt really good to know that you are reading this, despite the whining. It's definitely incentive to keep posting. Not on a daily basis but at least once a week. I promise.
I wish you all a Happy Easter. If you're not into celebrating Easter, then Happy Sunday Funday. Thanks for reading.
