At the beginning of the year, I had mentioned to all of you that I'm ready to start exploring other options in my career. Retail has been fun [lots of wholesale perks :)], but there is a lack of connection that I've been struggling with in this field. I often feel like I don't fit in and it's a lot more aggressively competitive than I realized. I always thought that fashion was my passion, but when I look at the new direction my blog has turn to, the shows I watch, and the activities I do on a weekly basis, it all has to do with food! I started this blog because I lost myself for a while and needed to find my way again, and it has led me into a direction that I never thought it would. Learning recipes and endless stories about my Italian cooking family has helped me find a new passion and more meaningful connection. So, I've decided to start focusing more on a field that brings out more creativity and happiness. And I have my loving, avid Cooking Souls to thank for this new discovery in life: Grandparents Madalene, Ugo, and Jo and beautiful Mama. So, what once was a blog about anything, will now be about the subject that I've fallen in love with, FOOD... with a few crafts thrown in here and there. I'm not sure what's next... school, small party planning events. But I'm ready to start over and begin a new journey with a team of support behind me!
