Oh What A Week!

12 Jan

Jack at 3 weeks old

Chris and I have had quite an eventful week!  Our son decided to join us THREE WEEKS early!  I went into labor this past Saturday and Jack Dunagan was born on Sunday, January 8th at 10:49am.  We couldn’t be prouder parents and are just so in love with him!  That said, we were totally not prepared!!  This was going to be my week to plow through and tie up loose ends, which clearly didn’t happen!  So I hope you can bare with me over the next few weeks while I sort myself out.  I have a ton of fun content that I can’t wait to share but need a little time to figure out my new routine!

OnMyPlate will be back to normal within the next few weeks.  Looking forward to being back on track soon!

Looking Back & Moving Forward

5 Jan

I realize that this should’ve been posted say five days ago, but hopefully you’ll all give me a little leeway given I’m 37 weeks pregnant and furiously trying to get my house in order, literally and figuratively, before our little man arrives to turn everything back on its head!

The past seven months blogging has reignited a part of me that has been missing for a few years.  When I was a market editor and a buyer, I was able to flex my creative muscles on a regular basis.  And at Prada, I was surrounded creative genius that made me look at my surroundings in different ways all of the time.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve definitely been inspired over the last few years but I haven’t had a creative outlet like this to really make me pay attention ALL of the time to what’s around me and I totally LOVE it!  So thank you for indulging me and allowing me to share with you some of the people, places, things, and recipes that inspire and intrigue me!  As with everything in life, my hope is that the best is yet to come!

But for now, here are a few of my favorite posts from 2011.  Let me know what your favorites were!  Happy 2012!!
