Spring and the Bun In the Oven


Easter was a beautiful day and I woke so cheery...dreaming about holding my baby in my arms. I am now 17 weeks pregnant and happy.

This past weekend Matthew and I enjoyed a beautiful Easter holiday with his parents. It's always so nice to spend a relaxing Sunday with family, especially when there is a home cooked meal to bring us together around the dinner table.

Though I haven't been cooking much or photographing. Food and photography have been my passion for the last 2 years, but in the last few months I have been plagued with food aversions and fatigue. I rarely even touch my recipe books. As for my camera, its just collecting dust. Its a strange thing to become enemies with food.

In the last few weeks food and I have been getting a long a little better. I am finding that I am slowly getting inspired again by recipes and by curiosity...I am starting to wonder what certain things taste like which is waking up my desire to start cooking again. But its coming back slowly.

This Easter was a bit of a triumph for me because I was able to create a fresh strawberry lemonade that I brought over for our Easter dinner. It felt like a small but meaningful achievement to me because even though I feel so exhausted all the time, I was able to make a contribution. And though as small as it seems, making something from scratch comes from the very bottom of my heart.

I hope everyone reading this had a wonderful Easter.

  1. Congratulations Veronika! That's great news :-)I do still remember that horrid morning sickness feeling and swear it was bad enough to put me off having anymore! It will pass though. All the best for the coming months, it's all worth it.
