Life is complicated. There isn't one singular thing alone that makes this life of ours as wildly lovely as it can be. A well lived life, whatever meaning that has for you, is going to have many different facets, which is what A Feasted Life is all about.
Five years ago I created and authored the food blog A Sofa in the Kitchen. I loved my little corner of the internet. But, as the years flew by and I grew, it's world began to narrow for me. It slowly became apparent that the joy I found in food, and in creating a special meal for those I loved, was not my only passion in life. There are endless elements that make this life of ours so unique and particularly special, and as time passed I began to relish these elements as much as the food I created. And so, after five years, and without even deciding to do so, it happened, I stopped posting at A Sofa in the Kitchen. At first I told myself I just needed a little hiatus. But slowly, days turned to weeks, weeks to months, and months to a year. What I didn't completely realize while the time was passing, that I do now, was that I had slowly progressed beyond that little food blog of mine. Still, as the days and months floated along I began to miss blogging, fiercely. I missed sharing my life. Missed the kind words of strangers and friends alike. I particularly missed photographing, conceptualizing, writing, and creating. Blogging had ushered me through some tough, and wonderful moments over the years. Because of blogging I had met my closest friend, a person I could not imagine my life without. Blogging had helped me grow into the adult that I am admittedly, still becoming. From my early twenties on, I wrote, I cooked and I captured it all through my lens. With each post and each passing year I grew. And so, before my year-off from blogging had fully passed, I realized I needed those elements that helped to shape and color my world back in my life. I had also come to realize that A Sofa in the Kitchen was now a part of my past, that I needed to look ahead to the future. So, A Feasted Life was born.
I make no promises. No grand statements or gestures as to what this little slice of the internet will be. For me it will be a place to share all the bites and elements that make my little life glow a bit brighter. So welcome, I hope you enjoy my new home here. Explore. Eat. Drink. Create. Embellish. Play. Be sure to taste everything life has to offer.
So, let us raise a glass in cheers friends, to the first post at A Feasted Life - and what's destined to be lucky 2013!
