October 17, 2019…It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. My husband has been out of the kitchen for a few years now and has been running a restaurant group up in Seattle. While the hours are still long, life looks pretty different than it did when he was running a kitchen every day.
While I haven’t been posting new content on this blog, I’ve been around, answering emails, chatting via Facebook and observing and occasionally commenting in our closed Facebook group. My blog continues to get visitors from people searching online about what it’s like to date a chef, be married to a chef, or how to clean a chef coat, and I’m thankful for that. Not a week goes by that someone doesn’t reach out thanking me for sharing my story or asking a question about their situation.
It’s a hard decision to make, but I need to take the blog off of my list of responsibilities right now. I’m going to leave this post at the top of the website and I’m going to set up an auto-responder on my email.
We found out a few weeks ago that my stage 4 breast cancer has returned in a bunch of places. Also, with my husband’s move out of the kitchen, I don’t really have anything new to share.
While this blog is not a burden in any way, I just need to not worry about it. The blog pays for itself through Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliates. (Thank you to those of you who shop on Amazon using my link.) So for now, I will leave it up as a resource, but I will no longer be updating it or responding to any comments or emails. 🙁 Thanks for your understanding.
I have loved getting to know so many people through this blog and have made some wonderful friends! I will still be around in our Facebook Group, but that will be it for now.
Thank you all for your support over the past 5 years as I shared about what it was like to be married to a chef. 🙂 I have loved being able to share my joys and trials with you and am thankful to have been an encouragement to others also walking this road.
