I’m back!

Hello everyone! I’m back! Don’t worry – I didn’t forget about you. I took a break from blogging (longer than I’d like to admit) as life things started to pile up. Things happened while I was away! We moved – again! I know, every time we move somewhere I tell myself “we will be here for a good chunk of time.” But then something happens that steers us in a different direction, and we’re buying more moving boxes.

This time, we stayed in the same state (NJ) but moved a bit more North because I got a new job! And this job happens to be in New York City! I have to admit I never would have thought I’d work in NYC, but now I’m one of those Jersey commuters with a drawer full of shoes at my office so I can wear my sneakers during my commute. The job is wonderful, and a big transition from what I was doing previously. One of my favorite things about the job (besides a kick ass team of people I work with) is the company deals with food! So I get to think and talk about food for my job! I can’t use enough exclamation points! I’m really lucky to have found such a great opportunity to transition from working at various universities to a field that I hadn’t dipped my toes in yet.

J and I have had a lot of amazing adventures since my last post. We’ve traveled a lot, cooked a lot, explored our new town, and had some great dance parties at quite a few weddings. I’ll be sharing some of these adventures by doing some catch up with a few back-in-time “Month Through My Lens” posts soon.

Due to my new job (and commute), I have less time to spend in the kitchen. While I may not post as frequently as I had previously, my goal is to keep the time in between posts much shorter. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this NYC rooftop shot.

Month Through My Lens: July 2014

month through my lens
Before I am two months behind, here is a look at what I was up to in July. It involved a lot of beach time.
My family takes a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico every summer. It was full of tacos, huge waves, jet skis, and margaritas. Here are some photos from the trip.

We had our own pool. I wore a swimsuit 90% of the time. Continue reading
