Lately… taking life a little more slowly

March came and went so quickly. Is it really April already? 
Up here in the north, it doesn't really feel any different. For all intents and purposes, it is still winter. Just a milder, more humane sort of winter.We can spend prolonged periods of time outside now. We play in the still 6-feet deep layers of snow. We cross-country ski. We snowshoe. We stare out the window and daydream of warm summer days that never get dark.

We spent the weekend at a friend's cabin deep in the woods this past weekend. No running water, no electricity, only a wood stove to keep us warm. It was quite lovely, actually. Of course there were minor stressors because a toddler was involved - but it was all well worth it.

It felt so refreshing to unplug from everything, and just be
And lazing around with lovely people and cooking delicious food all together. That's what we all need to do every once in a while.

As you may have noticed (if any of you longtime readers are still out there!) I haven't been posting very much lately. I've been finding it really hard to find the time and energy. And I am of the belief that blogging should be inspired, and not forced or contrived. So I've decided to simply let go… and wait and see what happens. If an exciting recipe, song, or story comes my way I will certainly make an effort to share it with you. But I will wait for it to happen naturally. Right now, I think I need to focus on being a good mom, a loving wife, and a devoted physician. And right now, that's a very full-time job!

I hope you are doing wonderfully out there.

With lots of love,

Your occasional blogging is still very much appreciated by me (a longtime reader, btw :)

It's always a treat when your posts pop up in my reader, so I hope you keep at it whenever life and inspiration allows.

I am doing the exact same thing with my blogging. I hate feeling obligated.

These photos and your words make me want to live, learn, and enjoy life with you.

Not sure how you do it all -- it's important to prioritize:) The internet isn't going anywhere. Take care! xo
