I’m still around… just not here

Hey people!

It’s been awhile, I know.

But don’t fear. I’m still around. Just not over here anymore. Or at least not right now.

I’ve decided to take a little break from this site and instead focus on some of my other passions.

So, you can find me over at One Martini where I’m still sharing weekly cocktail recipes, spirit reviews and whatever else strikes my fancy in regards to cocktails and home bartending. I also just finished up a complete redesign and branding change over there, so come check it out. Drinks are on me!

I’m still writing at allParenting where I’ve been sharing recipes for cocktails (of course!), vegetarian meals, sweet treats and more.

Other than that, I’ve been busy with the kids, the dogs and trying to keep the house together while the husband remodels two of our three bathrooms. Yeah, that kind of sucks.

And I can still be found over on Twitter (I did switch my Twitter handle so you can now find me at @one_martini), Facebook or Google Plus if you ever want to say hi!

Essence of Now: Outtakes

We finally got around to taking our family pictures for this year. I can’t say it was as successful as I had hoped. Out of 261 pictures, I only favorited 10. Oh well. Maybe next year they will be better. In the meantime, I’ll share with you a handful of the outtakes. Because there wereContinue Reading

In Hopes of a Spring Flower Garden

For the last three years I’ve been growing vegetables in my backyard garden. But the truth is, I’ve always wanted a spring flower garden. I love seeing the bright colors of the flowers after the cold winter. It reminds me of the warmer days to come. My plan every fall is to get the bulbsContinue Reading

Essence of Now: Punkins

Warning. This post is going to be all about the pumpkins. Or punkins as the kids sometimes call them. Because it is Halloween over here. And the kids were begging to carve pumpkins. One of them may or may not have had a little fun with camera while scooping out guts. Luckily we had aContinue Reading

Essence of Now: Beautiful Weather

Summer might be my favorite season but fall is a close runner up. With clear blue skies, trees of all colors and temps in the mid 70s, it’s just beautiful outside. So we’ve been taking advantage of the beautiful weather as much as possible this week. Even the dogs get to join in the fun.Continue Reading

Pumpkin Spice Brownies

I’m a big fan of dessert, especially when it contains chocolate. These pumpkin spice brownies are no exception because they contain… chocolate! And pumpkin. And spice. And everything nice. And are perfect for a fall dessert when pumpkins are aplenty. Yes, I know it’s not necessarily healthy for me to eat dessert. But we allContinue Reading

My scary children made even scarier with #PicMonkeyBOO

My kids love Halloween. From dressing up as vampire princesses to getting candy, it’s one of their favorite holidays. The fact that my oldest is obsessed with vampires and zombies might have something to do with it. So, this year to help extend their Halloween fun, I let them play around with PicMonkey‘s Halloween photoContinue Reading

Essence of Now: A Decade

This was a big week for us because of a special birthday for a certain someone who turned… We celebrated with a weekend with grandma and her cousin, lots of homemade treats and plenty of games. Now can someone please slow time a little because these kids are getting way too big. It’s your turnContinue Reading

Essence of Now: The Graffiti Artist

I’ve been working with Layla since the start of our homeschooling year on how to write her letters and numbers. As I showed a few weeks ago in the post about 1-2-3 Magic, she practices her skills on more than just paper. This past week, it seems like she has branched out from doors toContinue Reading
