a farm tour + butternut squash risotto.

So, as it turns out: I’m not super woman after all.

It’s been a month since my last blog update, and the lack of posts have been nagging at my subconscious.

But I’m not the type to post random stuff for the sake of it. I work from inspiration so that I can pass it on to you. However, sometimes, ‘other things’ take over and it can be tricky to find a balance. I’ve been caught up in a whirlwind of life stuff, work, wrangling kids, and sadly still grieving the passing of someone very close to my heart.
