Hi all, It has been almost a year since I have been on this site.
It is absolutely ridiculous for me to think about that.
Luckily it has not been almost a year since I have baked anything – that would have been ridiculous. 🙂
Life has been incredibly busy – since last year this time I have gotten two promotions at work, gotten engaged, gotten married, moved to a new house, tried to decorate said house, and a whole lot of other amazing things.
Now I am back and I hope to keep it going for a little while.
With that I am going to make some pretty delicious cookies. At least I hope they will be – I am writing while I mix these little guys up and we will see how they turn out.
Also, while I write and bake I have been watching these awesome videos from Brene Brown. Love her and her thoughts.
Have you guys seen these yet? They are incredibly adorable and spot on.
The first one is empathy vs. sympathy and then the second one is on blame and how it corrodes empathy.
Mind = Blown.
Also as a part of this blog post I am renewing my pledge to blog for mental health.
“I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2015 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma.”
I have done this pledge the past two years you can read those here and here. If you are interested in the campaign (click here) you should definitely do it as well. As many people we have speaking out against the stigma against mental health the bigger our impact will be!
Now that you have these in your thoughts. Pop some of these cookies in your mouth and I will be back soon!
