Welcome 2010!

Happy New Year, everyone! I was terrible not to tell you that I'd be away for so long, but I thought somehow I'd drop in now and again over the holidays (pure delusion, I admit). Now here it is 2010!

The boy and I have been on a wonderful whirlwind of a road trip visiting family and friends up and down the East Coast. I had plenty of time in the passenger seat to reflect on the past year and am so thankful — and in so many ways surprised — at all that has happened during that time.
I wanted to start this new year right by thanking you. I truly appreciate you visiting with me now and again in 2009. Your visits have encouraged me to keep cooking, taking pictures and drawing.

I'm a list-maker by nature and by the time we landed home on our own door step this afternoon I had accumulated a large bundle of paper scraps filled with scribbles and ideas. I am geared up to suss out new adventures in the coming year and will be back Monday with some highlights from our trip and a slew of new recipes.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better in the new year and to the cozy quieter days of January and February — perfect for cooking, drawing and knitting!
