So, go about your food blog loving business as I know you do and things will be back to normal soon!
I wish I could say that things will be getting back to normal for me soon, but I�m definitely not anyway near normalcy, and I�m wondering if/when I ever will be. The littlest things set me off, and they come out of nowhere–a random thought while I�m driving home from work, a smile from an elderly woman while I�m running an errand in the mall.
I�m not trying to fill this space with negative thoughts or energy, so let’s segue into something a little more cheerful: a photo montage of my Nana and me. You�ll notice that I�m fairly young in these photos-Nana stopped wanting to have pictures taken of her as she got older , and preferred to be on the other end of the camera.
Anyway, these are the memories I�m holding onto. Nana and her ridiculously large glasses and layered necklaces, bringing me poofy white outfits before my tomboy years came to pass.
I would say that my Nana would have loved these little oatmeal cookie cups, but honestly, Nana would have loved anything I post about here. Or at least that�s what she would have told me.
But it�s hard not to love ramekins filled with oatmeal pumpkin cookie dough that�s been studded with pretzel bits and butterscotch morsels, baked until just set and topped with whipped cream and pumpkin caramel sauce, isn�t it?
I thought so too.
