Lately, I’ve been cooking up a storm. And I need to post all of the delicious foods I’ve made! It’s been a while since I have posted anything about food or updated my recipes. That needs to change. I’ve posted pictures of the lovely goodness all over my tumblr/twitter, and I’ve promised to get the recipes up, and I am behind. However, some of that changes today.
One of the main foods I have been baking lately are pies. Yum! I’ve found I’m quite the pie fanatic. And, lo and behold, I have finally posted one of my pie filling recipes. It’s in the Dessert page, but here’s a quick link: Unapple Pie Filling. I’ve also posted two other recipes for Nutella Brownies and Fleur de Sel Caramel (a fancy term for Salted Caramel.) So there we go. Three new recipes. And I will have more to come.
I could say I’m making excuses when I tell the lovely world-wide-web that I have been busy, but it is true. There is a lot that comes with being recently married. It’s different from being single (obviously), and I don’t have time for things I used to. But I’m happy with all of that. Now, there is a home and another person to tend to, which I love. Laxer-Bro is also a wonderful help. He’s also very fun to cook with.
There are so many other things I’ve found are worth being married for. Sadly, much of the world these days votes against marriage. I think it needs to be the other way around. Yes, being married isn’t easy, but when did not being married suddenly become worth it? “It takes two to make a thing go right,” to quote Seduction. This is true. Working together with my own spouse on everything has made our relationship stronger, our home happier, and helps us in many ways. I can honestly say that I love him more now that I did when I married him. And I only want to keep loving him more.
Call me a hopeless romantic, but when two people are dedicated to each other, that’s true love.
Marriage has been on my mind a lot lately due to my own recent marriage, my birth-sister’s marriage coming up, a *SPOILER ALERT!* sister-in-law’s proposal coming up (She knows nothink!), and some of my friends and loved ones finding themselves in the middle of divorce. it has struck me as to how important human connections are and how important it is to make relationships last and work. The adverse affects aren’t worth the later option. As human beings, we are given the capacity to love endlessly and tirelessly. So let’s not forget that. There are a lot of other ways Laxer-Bro and I have found to make our marriage and our relationship stronger. One day I may write a whole blog post on this, but for now, I’ll leave it to these few, simple truths.
I still plan to post more on our wedding and on other fun things, but for now I will direct you to my wedding tumblr. I don’t think I have posted my tumblr dedicated to all things wedding, but here it goes! When I was looking for ideas as to what I wanted for my own wedding, I realized I needed a space to put all of the images and ideas I liked. That place became my own tumblr wedding blog. Now that I’m through with my wedding, and with more weddings coming up, I’ve also kept up my wedding blog in hopes of helping others become inspired. So, enjoy! Sw33taxionFairyTale.
