Happy New Year


The last couple of months have been a blur.  I returned from Nashville with the kids and Joel went on to Colorado for work and came home with an offer to transfer to the Boulder office for 12 months.  For the entire Christmas holiday we weighed up the pros and cons and finally decided to move.

We love California.  Such a beautiful place and there is just so much more to see. Thankfully we can come back often but we are also excited about experiencing Boulder before returning home to Australia.


Making the decision to move, just like making the decision to move to San Francisco, is not an easy one. Especially when I think how settled the kids are at their current school. It has been at the forefront of my mind the last couple of months but what a busy couple of months.  I have started studying online which requires a lot of discipline with time, my parents have been visiting for the last month, Joel and I had a weekend away in New York and then we all spent Christmas up in the Sierras and got in some skiing.  As you can see from the photos we got to Yosemite which is looking vastly different from when we were last there in the summer, but just as striking. Because it has been the festive season I have been cooking, cooking and more cooking.

Well, it is a new year and for the first time in my life I haven’t set any new year resolutions.  It doesn’t feel like a new year as we are half way through the school year, but more to the point, I feel content.  I could work harder at getting to things early, or at least on time, but that can wait until 2015.  Happy New Year and I hope to share lots more recipes in 2014!
