When I first stared my blog, I specifically called is a lifestyle blog as opposed to a food blog. It seems like it’s turning more and more into a food blog, as that’s where my passion lies, however I wanted to have the option to write about whatever is in my heart and on my mind. So, here I go. Some of you that are reading this know me well, and some probably not. So I’ll start by explaining myself a bit. I’m pretty closed off. I wouldn’t say I’m unfriendly, but I’m definitely not an open book. I don’t easily share my feelings with people, even close family and friends, nor do I always tell everyone what’s going on behind closed doors. I do feel like it’s a bit of a flaw; I often wish I could be more of an open book but it’s not in my nature. When my mom was diagnosed with cancer in May of 2012, I followed this to a T. I eventually told my friends what was going on, but I wasn’t good about keeping them up to date, or telling them how I was really feeling about everything. I didn’t go shouting from the roof top that my mom had cancer. I have so many regrets about that. I see my mistakes now. I truly believe that if I had used the powers of social media earlier in her illness, we could have found better doctors and a better treatment plan. I can’t change that now, all I can do is look forward.
