So, here we are in 2013. I hope you had a joyous holiday season and I also hope your pants still button. Mine barely do.
Guess what a few members of my crazy family asked for for the New Year? They want more Flour & Child blog posts. I mean, I thought the super creepy and delightful head scratchers that I put in their stockings would satisfy every one of their desires. But, no. They want more posts. And, I'm not one to NOT deliver on a New Year's wish. Actually, I often give gifts a little late so it is apropos that I'm posting on the seventh day of the new year, instead of the first. But, as it is a monday and the leftover cakes and cookies have finally been eaten and I've gotten somewhere closer to a routine that does not involve the regular consumption of butter and heavy cream, I think I'm ready to start granting these wishes.
I have so much to share with you. And, I have finally given myself permission to take time away from piles of laundry and stacks of dishes to be here. Because, writing and cooking make me happy. Sharing those things (among others) makes me even happier. And everyone deserves a happy 2013.
So, here's me saying I will be here more. I hope you will be too.
