So... as you may (or may not) have noticed, my previous post was for a cake I completed in June of last year! Yes, it's been over a year since I've done much with cakes, or anything with my blog.. but for a very good reason. I had a baby!!! That's the good part.. the bad part was that much like my first pregnancy, I was extremely sick for most of the 9 months. I had a condition with both my pregnancies known as "Hyperemesis Gravidarum".. aka HG. Without going too much into the horrific details, let me just say it effects about 2% of pregnant women (lucky me, right?) and is primarily characterized by EXTREME nausea and vomiting.. yeah.. not so much fun. In fact it is quite debilitating.. hence the extensive cake/blog hiatus.
I now have 2 little guys keeping me on my toes every day.. Oliver (4) and Edison (5 months). And although it's quite hectic around here most days, I actually do miss caking and blogging. I will be scaling back on cakes since it's a lot for me right now with 2 little ones.. heck it was a lot with just Oliver! For the time being, I'm going to focus on my boys (they're only little once!) and family. Since I can't imagine giving up cakes completely, I'll continue to do family cake requests (hoping this will allow me to keep up my skills as well).
You may also notice my blog itself has a new look, with some additional features. I felt like it was time for some changes since life has changed a lot for me in the last year. In addition to a new design, I wanted to update the pages to reflect more of what I've been up to these days (aside from babes and cakes ;) ..including some party planning and DiY fun. Hope you like it! ..And now.. on with some cake posts!
