It's Been a While

Have you missed me? I've missed you. I'm not sure what happened to this little blog of mine...I have neglected it, and that's just silly of me. Blogging isn't hard, and it isn't that time-consuming. But at the end of the day, it gets pushed to the bottom of my priorities list, and I end up choosing to be lazy on the couch instead of keeping up with forlorn and forgotten Amuse Bouche.

Le sigh. Anyway, I don't have any new recipes to share, mainly because since we're been gone so many weekends that my shopping trips have been sporadic and my meals have been based upon convenience. I realize that convenient meals are good ones to share, but lots of times I finish eating before I even remember to take a picture.

Here's the thing: Planning a wedding takes a lot out of you, even when you have a supermom who does all the heavy lifting for you. (Thanks, mom!) It just feels like my brain is on another planet. This spring has been a whirlwind of parties, showers, lunches, dinners, rides in cars and on airplanes, and a whole lot of smiling for the camera. In short, it's been an amazing few months...the best ever.

I do think there will be a little bit of melancholy this summer after all the hubbub has gone. But--lucky me--I'll have a sweet, wonderful husband to get me through. And this blog. I promise, my friends, I will be back and I'll have an army of fabulous food, including some Paris-inspired menus. (Did you know we're off to Paris for the honeymoon? Swoon.)

Until then...

I have missed your little blogger self. And, no, I didn't know you were going to Paris! Double swoon!!! Can't wait to see pics of you as a gorgeous bride!!! xoxo

P.S. It is kind of sad once it's all over, but then the best part starts... :)

Good luck with everything and congrats! Don't worry about afterwards, it will be a little bit of a let-down, but then just come back to the kitchen!
