Hello friends! As I'm sure some of you have noticed, I've been rather M.I.A. lately. I used to post multiple times a week and now I'm down to about one or two posts a week, if I'm lucky. While this blog is meant to be a hobby for me and not a means of making money or gaining fame, I can't help but feel a little disappointed in myself for letting my beloved blog get pushed to the background of my life. Although Cooking to Perfection is still extremely important to me, there are so many other things going on in my life that are taking my focus away. Instead of trying to force myself to find time to do a post here and there, I have decided to take a mini break. This is most definitely not a permanent break. I'm treating this more as a vacation--just a time to take a breather and focus on other events, people, and things that need my attention at this time. But don't think you are getting rid of me for good! And, as a friendly reminder, I am still a recipe contributor over at Cocktails With Mom and I post bimonthly. I am also a co-founder of Reading and Recipes, which posts on Thursday every week. So if you feel so inclined, please come visit me on either of those sites and say hello. Or say hello here! I'll still check back periodically.
I don't know about y'all, but I cannot believe it's already July. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was packing away my boots and sweaters, and getting excited for wearing sundresses and rockin' my newest sandals. And now it is July. Craziness! With no signs of summer slowing down, I have the urge to get a move on checking off my list of must-do summer activities. Day trips to the beach, country concerts, baseball games, and all day music festivals are some of the best parts of summer. Grilling out and having a potluck-style cookout is also another favorite. Fun friends, delicious food, cold beverages, and sunny weather-it doesn’t get any better than that.
