Back At It!

After a 4.5-month break, I’m back at it with new blog posts coming your way starting this weekend. You must know that after eight years, this blog and I wouldn’t be disappearing. Now, I will explain why I took a break… I was pregnant and now I have a baby! It was a rough pregnancy and I just didn’t have the energy to blog at my day job and at EvinOK and here, so one of them had to take a break. But baby and I are well, so blogging can resume.

After keeping this little secret all year, I'm pleased to have the cat out of the bag. Well, the baby out of the belly. #micdrop We welcomed our little bundle and are loving being back in the new baby cocoon. So, to celebrate, a look back at the belly. #b

To celebrate my new arrival, we’re going to be doing something different for a few months here at 40 Shades of Life. Every Saturday and Sunday, I’ll post a profile of a different Cork City brunch destination. It will include the hours, menu highlights, and even photos. I’m also working on compiling all that into one central Brunch in Cork Google Doc and Brunch in Cork Google Map (they’ll both be linked to from our new dedicated Brunch Cork page). Then, on weekdays, I’ll intersperse Cork City happenings and expat perspectives. At least, that’s the plan.

One of us has handknit bunny slippers, the other is a little envious. Thanks @mamason60 ! #motherhood #knitting #bunnyslippers #newborn #littlefeet #warmfeet #madewithlove

Thanks for sticking around and I’m delighted to be back.


Enough about me. What are you thinking?
