For anyone who is visiting here after several months to find there is just this one lonely blog post – I have some ‘splaining to do…
See, I moved to China. And then chaos ensued, including losing ALL my websites and their content because I’m not a web
developer anything and don’t know basic things like how to back up a website. (ha! good thing I was never too attached to them, no?)
However, I am very committed to rebuilding this blog, and I hope it can be even better now that I’ve had a bit of time to reflect on why I started it and what I hope to accomplish. But it’s going to take some time, and I’m going to shift directions a bit, to include not just recipes and cooking ideas, but parenting and education ideas as well.
So a few things:
1. We’ve covered I moved to China – and I hope this can be a big part of what I share here: food, culture, kids…and of course, chaos.
2. I started training as a Montessori teacher around the same time I landed in China and I have sooooo many more thoughts and ways to approach not only cooking with my kids but just about everything I do with my kids, and I hope that I can share some great insights here.
3. I discovered and have implemented the KonMari method, which is just as crazy, and home-life-changing as she (Marie Kondo) promises in her wacky and endearing book which reads like her love letter to tidying. She is just great, and a little crazy, and I guess that’s why I feel like we’d be best friends if we ever met (and if you struggle with a cluttered home, I promise her method works, as a life-long disheveled mess, myself).
