I haven’t been doing a great job of keeping this blog up. I think part of it is feeling like mostly what I do is chastise people into feeding each other, and while I believe whole heartedly in this message it’s hard to repeat consistently without feeling like a broken record and a nag. I would love more people weighing on their thoughts, experiences, and ideas about feeding themselves and others, but in asking for others to write you also don’t want to be a nag. So this is a forum mostly filled with my own thoughts and experiences.
Speaking of my own thoughts and experiences, another reason it has been difficult to keep up is that recently I haven’t been doing as much hosting myself so I don’t have that to reassure me that I’m doing the right thing. The Mr has started studying for a big test he has come this fall and it means a lot of my evenings are spent home alone. Please don’t feel sorry for me, I’m very good at being alone- almost too good and sometimes have to remember to go out and see people and do things. But now that we are married it seems a little less fun to have all our friends and family over for meals without him or that he can’t make it to until late. So while I continue to believe we should feed each other and love each other through meals spent together I’m also taking a bit of a break from doing this as often.
If you have a thought, story, experience, or advice concerning food, eating, togetherness, and shared meals please let me know- I would love to share it here.
In the meantime I will try to continue to update this as I can.
