A New Look

Hey! This blog still exists. Who knew? Well, it didn’t for a while, and I contemplated shutting it down completely, but I’m not ready to let it go just yet, infrequent writing be damned. Can I call a year-plus lapse “infrequent”?

First things first: I wanted to move my blog from a self-hosted WordPress site to Squarespace. I did, and am still working out some of the transition kinks, so please bear with me if some of the design, layouts, and other formatting issues are off.

Secondly, my goal is to reestablish some semblance of a regular publishing schedule, with predictable content (travel, photos, recipes, etc.). We’ll see how that goes — I was not super-successful maintaining my blog after Piopio’s arrival, as a full-time stay-at-home mom. And now, I’m working full time.

While I definitely have less “free time” than I did before, I find I’m more productive when I’m busier. So this will either work out great, or you won’t hear from me again until 2021.

Finally, thanks for sticking around/coming back/visiting for the first time. I enjoy writing and tinkering around websites, so this blog is more to scratch a creative itch that I can’t quite reach through my day job (or my night/all-the-time job, being a mom). But it’s gratifying nonetheless to have “readers,” even if they’re mostly related to me.

Stay tuned!
