As you may have noticed, I’ve taken a short break from my blog. It wasn’t intentional; I just had several things all come to fruition at the exact same time. Sometimes that’s how life works. Sometimes you have ample time to work, play, etc. and then all of a sudden you have three or four things that all happen at the same time and the convergence can seem nearly impossible—but somehow it has to get done.
Over the past few months, I had a book manuscript due, a large 5-day festival (that I started and manage) take place, several articles due and I launched a local food magazine.
Why I bit off so much, I don’t know but somehow it all got done. My new book, Junk Food Funk: the 3, 5 and 7-Day Junk Food Detox for Weight Loss and Better Health, had a successful launch in September and is now available through Shape magazine or on Amazon.com. The St. Pete Wine & Food Festival took place at the beginning of November. The 5-day festival which included a Charity Wine Pairing Dinner, a Tacos and Tequila Festival, a Craft Beer Festival and a 2-day Wine & Food Grand Tasting was a huge success. In addition to that, I wrote several articles for Shape.com and Fitness.com while at the same time launching LocalsDISH, a local food and lifestyle magazine in Tampa Bay.
I know all the above may sound like an excuse for my social media hiatus, but I truly have never been so busy in all my life. Just trying to keep up and still be a great mom (my number 1 goal) was utterly exhausting.
I do however apologize for the silence and hope to get back on track, as I love sharing with all of you!
I have included some photos from the past few months and promise to share more about my new book in my next post.
