grieve, write, cook

Transparent Moment:

Today is the day that my Dad transitioned from this side. Seventeen years ago. Some days I’m full of joy and other days that grief just creeps in and I feel empty, lost, and confused. I felt that the past two weeks. I shared before it’s like the grief before the grief. I feel it.

“When we come through our storm of grief we are changed. We can find ourselves different in both lovely and horrible ways. Perhaps when the storms come again, as they will, we will have learned how to weather them. There is the possibility of survival. Survival with grace.” —Jan Warner

No doubt this pandemmy has brought on more grief and sadness than I thought it would. I always say you have to find JOY wherever you can. For me it has been cooking and sharing on my other space My Pretty Brown Fit + Eats.

I’m so grateful to have a space to create which has also turned into a beautiful passion (and somewhat therapy). I still believe in going to therapy, but writing, sharing food helped save me after the unexpected transition of my Mom (along with God/prayer/HB/family/friends like family).

On a Happier Note! I realized I should share more of that goodness over here. I’m excited to share my NEW RECIPE just in time for Valentine’s Day! These WHITE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES are so adorable…easy to make and deliciously, addictive! Treat yo’self! You can find the recipe on!

Happy Valentine’s Day in Heaven Mom & Dad!
