I'm ba-aaaack!

It's already been 3 months since my last entry. So much has happenned!

Quick Recap:
I took the L's on a trip to Spain and Portugal, L2 got sick at the end of the trip and ended up leaving her appendix in the south of Portugal (more on this later, believe me!), we continued to work two farmer's markets on Saturdays, we are taking out the sailboat as much as possible, and continue our search for the perfect condo to buy (I am so done with renting!). The girls started school mid August and are very happy and already very busy. I have been getting a lot of interpreting work and have done a couple of fun auditions for acting jobs (I even drove to Pittsburgh for a call back for a role in a made-for-tv movie!).

This past weekend was a good example of what our life has been like for the better part of the last two years: We were busy with homework, chores and housework, worked two farmers markets, went to a cousin's wedding, and buried our 15 year old dog.

I know!
Important, emotional, meaningful, difficult, joyous, life-affecting as well as life-affirming events wedged in a flurry of every-day, time-consuming routines and tasks.

It feels like we hit the ground running as soon as we get out of bed, and we have to diligently remind ourselves to slow down, to breath, to remember what's important, to appreciate the little things and to delight in each other.

So the thought of adding blogging back into my schedule seems unrealistic at best, and at worst just plain insane, but I WANT to! Healthy eating is inseparable from healthy living, both physically and mentally. The only way I am able to overcome (and sometimes even thrive in!) my crazy busy schedule is by making healthy eating and other healthy practices my allies. I still have a lot to share and I think that taking the time to share it despite my lack of free time, simply shows how important it is.

So, this is my official declaration that the Reluctant Raw Blogger is back, eager and happy to share!

PS. Coming up next... 3 day fast.
