Bad, bad, bad.

I know. I've been a horrible blogger. But round these parts, it's been a crazy time known as end-of-semester crunch time. I haven't had a minute to stop and think since the last time I posted.

I would like to say thanks for all of the kind words of encouragement and all of the prayers. Being at the funeral was completely surreal and one of the hardest things I've gone through. There are still days I can't believe she's gone, but I'm doing my best to carry on and remember her the way she'd want to be remembered. Please continue to keep her family and friends in your thoughts over the holidays as they all celebrate the first without her lovely presence.

And I know that there has been a lack of food posting on here lately, but I ask for your patience while I finish tying up my loose ends at school. I'm doing my best to make it through to December 10th, which is when all of my projects are due (yes, all 14 of them). I promise to have some lovely holiday recipes fit for entertaining after that - you just gotta hang on.

Now excuse me while I take the next day or two to celebrate December 3rd, a day I've been looking forward to for quite awhile - my 30th birthday!

I'm just catching up to all my favorite blogs, I too have been falling behind on blogging because of schoolwork.

So it sounds really awkward to say these two things together, but I'm so very sorry about your friend. That must have been a horrible shock for you. My condolences to you and her family.

And happy belated birthday! What a monumental age... are you going to change the blog to "30cooks" any time soon...?
