I haven’t been blogging for this last month, because I have been dealing with a huge issue. Last month, my house caught on fire. I lost almost everything I own. My family made it out alright, and for that I am so thankful. I did lose almost everything I own. I walked away from my house with my clothes, a stranger’s coat, shoes and socks. Five weeks later, I am in a spot where I am finally feeling like things have settled down enough that I can start looking at my blog again.
My house fire has been a very frustrating thing to deal with. I’m so thankful we have insurance, but at the same time, getting everything lined up and dealing with insurance is a huge pain. We are making it through.
I am so lucky that my hard drive made it through the fire. My laptop was sitting on my dining room table below. It is a miracle my hard drive survived and I didn’t lose years of research! The fire started in our garage (which is behind the far wall in the if photo below) and went through the roof.
I am going from this really nice kitchen my husband and I had just remodeled, to a very small apartment kitchen. I lost my Kitchen aid mixer…I really lost everything from my kitchen. You can see from the photo below what I had and what it ended up becoming.
I am really going to do my best to keep this blog going, in spite of this huge set back. I have a cute little kitchen in my apartment and I should be able to keep making great meals. Hang tight with me through this rough spot and I promise to bring more great recipes!
