Time to Get Back to Normal

Or at least normal as normal gets in my world.

Soon after my last post {a whopping MONTH ago} and about a week before Christmas, the flu made it’s way through my family.  Someone made commented on my Facebook page that, “unless you are praying for death it is probably not the flu” and I will remember what she said  for life.  What an accurate description.  I have never in my life been so sick and I never ever want to be that sick again!

Once we finally recovered it took me a long time to get back into the groove.  I might have grown a little accustomed to a clean kitchen and cuddling on the couch with my kiddos every night, but after a bit of R&R I am finally ready to dive back into the royal icing.

Thank you everyone for all of the messages {another thing I have neglected} and well wishes.  I am so very touched and will continue to work on my already broken resolution to keep up with email better.

As for 2013, I am excited for the year to come.

When I began writing this post the plan was to line out my goals and the direction I’d like my blog to take the year to come, but as I typed, I realized that what I really want to hear is what you as a reader would like to talk about in the coming year.

So that’s it.  I’m alive and excited to get back into cookie mode and I’m waiting to hear from YOU.   You can leave a comment or message, it doesn’t matter as long as we’re talking cookies.

Here’s to a cookie filled new year.

Happy Baking!
