A year and a half has passed since I last hit publish here on Another Root, my little internet home. It’s hard to know now where to start. Eighteen months have gone by since I shared these make-ahead turkey burritos (still a staple around here, let me tell you). I can’t believe it’s been this long! Life took over — work, taking care of the house, caring for our puppy, and a few other things that we’ll get into soon (wink). And to be honest, I started to feel less inspiration each time I sat down to write or develop a new recipe.
It began to feel like a chore, and that’s never what this was meant to be. K and I started this blog as a way to share our love of healthy, delicious food with family and friends (that includes you!). Once it began to feel like something I was supposed to do rather than something I wanted to do, I decided to take a step back for a while. Put down the camera, close the computer, and just be for a bit.
I had every intention of coming back here after a few weeks, but it didn’t feel right yet. It’s only in the last few weeks that I’ve started to have the itch to write again. And sitting down to actually get started, to steer this little corner of the internet in a new direction, has my heart pounding.
Here’s the deal: I’m constantly seeking to live more intentionally — to appreciate what I have, to love deeply, to be good company. Along the way, I’m exploring passions that go beyond overnight oats and chocolate chip cookie bars — from living simply and minimally and making our house a home to learning how to make our money work for us. And I’d like to share them with you.
While I may not be an expert minimalist (if that’s even a thing?), and I don’t have a degree in finance by any means — these, along with making meals that fill our hearts and souls with warmth, are the things I’m learning about and growing in.
In my mind, I’ve hit a refresh button of sorts. I may not be starting from scratch — my past posts will live on, and I’ll still be sharing some of my favorite recipes now and again. But this new direction will be one with less restriction and more freedom to explore, to have new experiences and share it all with you.
If you’re reading now, and you’ve made it this far with me, I’d love to know — what would you like to read about here on Another Root? What questions linger in your mind? What problems are you hoping to solve? Let me know in the comments below. ❤️
