I’m back from my hiatus. Well, kind of. Last week was super refreshing — got in a lot of reading time (finished a book & started two more!), cooking time, hubby time, and girlfriend time. Celebrated a couple birthdays & a wedding, but mostly just rested. It was nice. :]

With the time I had to think, I’ve decided to blog a little less frequently & put more of my time/effort into working on new products/services instead. It was a tough decision for me, but ultimately, I think it’s the best decision for me & for those closest to me. Will definitely continue sharing with you all my on-going projects, snippets of my life, and things that inspire me… just maybe not everyday. ;]

Got these Paulette macarons as favors from the wedding we attended on Saturday, and loved them so much, I snatched up all the extras that people had left behind on neighboring tables (may be poor wedding etiquette, but I just couldn’t resist!). If you recall, the earl grey flavored one is my fave — but that pink wedding almond was a worthy competitor.

Hope your weekend was just as sweet as mine! (Taha, pun very much intended.)

    You made the right decision, I think, and I’ll still get to enjoy your superb photography–just not as often.

    Nothing wrong with snatching up the leftovers…especially such yummy party favors. I think it’s pretty poor wedding etiquette to not take the party favor.

    I will miss your daily updates, but I think that because I will miss them, I will look forward to any update with even more anticipation!

    p.s. those macaroons look divine.

    I hear you!! It takes so much time and energy and I feel like I’m always trying to keep up! But glad to have you back :)

    dear cathie,

    i believe we have a noteworthy similarity between us: we’re willing to sacrifice etiquette (and the stares from strangers) in the name of delectable food. my husband often compares me to Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon on the show 30 Rock because she lives for good food.
