Tear Soup

Dear friends,

Hopefully you’re still here. I know that my lack of contribution here has made for very little sharing lately. But I haven’t forgotten about all of you lovelies. Unfortunately, today I have some sad news to share. I know this blog isn’t about my personal life, but it is my creative outlet, and it will be affected by what has happened.

Honey ended our relationship a week ago. It was sudden and unexpected, and it has been so incredibly hard to process and understand. Without going into details, after 4 years together, living together, with a puppy, preparing to sell my condo and invest in a home together, I feel that my life has been completely shattered.

Accompanying my heartbreak is a loss of appetite, a loss of joy in food altogether. Honey was my taste tester, my food critic, my photo critic and sometimes assistant, my cheerleader. Not to mention, in my eyes, the love of my life and my partner in all of life’s coming adventures. Now I must try to get my life back on track, I must try to adjust to being alone, and to cooking for one. I have no idea how to make this transition, but everyone keeps telling me that my life will move forward somehow, and that no matter how deep, time eventually heals all wounds.

So please friends, new and old, don’t give up on me. I will try my hardest to get back to cooking, baking, and sharing with all of you. But first, my heart requires a little mending.

Take good care, eat, drink, and be well.

See you soon,



  1. I’m very sorry to hear this, you will get through these rough times and come out strong. My heart goes out to you.

  2. Sending love your way, sweet friend.

    Reading this broke my heart =( You will once again find the joy in cooking, baking, life in general! If you ever need a taste tester, you know where I live 😉
    Love you!!

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about your sad times right now! Breakups can be so, so hard, but just put one foot in front of the other and you’re going to come out on the other side! Love to you!
