Guys. I’m back. I really didn’t mean to ghost you. My intention wasn’t to go dark, I promise!
I’m no stranger to a packed schedule, but over the last 60-90 days, my life got flipped turned upside down. And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, and I’ll tell you… all about where I’ve been for the last two months.
Jokes and Fresh Prince references aside, the first half of 2016 has been a whirlwind professionally and personally. In order: a new relationship, a new job in an old city, a break up, a leadership reconfiguration of the Houston Food Blogger Collective, an apartment flood, and other miscellany that kept me tied up in life and away from the blog.
More on that first part. Earlier this month, I began my new role as Lead Registered Dietitian for Snap, and I’ll be moving to our home office in Austin, TX early next month. I’m incredibly excited for the opportunity to grow with the company I love and to further impact the food we create. I’m also pretty sad to be leaving the life I made over the last two years in Houston. I’ll miss the culture and grit of this city. I’ll miss the food. I’ll miss the friends I’ve made and the bonds we’ve built. I’ve totally fallen back in love with my hometown, but it’s time for the next big thing.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be easing back into a more regular posting schedule, but bear with me as I take time to pack and say my goodbyes. Once I’m settled in Austin, it’s on. More recipes, more fitness, more starter kitchen tips, more career advice that I’m learning as I go, more workwear fashion ideas, more apartment decor, more more.
Y’all just tell me what you want. Your girl is back.
