Sending love and hugs

All week I have been trying to think of the right words to say. Honestly, I’m still not sure I even know the right thing to say to address the things that have been happening lately…but I will try to keep it simple. Just to be clear-this is not a political post.

What’s New?

What's New

Over the past two months, I have been fortunate enough to spend 20+ hours a week interning for a local media company, and let me tell you: it has been a ton of work, but it has made me so happy. I have felt an immense amount of accomplishment each Friday when I see my work in the newspaper next to some of the greatest names in local journalism. I have had some fantastic coaches, and the whole experience has been invaluable to me. As a quick “month of November wrap-up,” I’ll run some highlights:

What’s New At Milk And Madeleines

Over the next month, Milk And Madeleines will be undergoing some renovation, to make the viewing experience a little more pleasurable. I will be adding a menu at the top, where posts have been categorized, and I will also add social media buttons. This will make the process of contacting me even easier.

As I continue to research ways to make this site more viewer-friendly, there might be a pause in posting-but bear with me. I’m more of a DIYer when it comes to most things in life, so it might take a little bit longer than expected. There are a lot of great changes planned!

All day, I had been desperately trying to figure out why I had been cursed with a case of writers block. I came up with the following:

1. My town is experiencing a heat wave
2. My house does not have any air conditioning
3. My thoughts are unorganized

Tonight, I spent several hours outdoors (after cooking out, of course.) I took all of my productivity tools and Macbook outside, lit a citronella candle, and created something that I hope will make my life easier: a personal food critiquing rubric.

I realize that not many people would be excited by something like this, but I hope that this top secret writing tool will help me to deliver better material to this site. Meaning: no more excuses and boring blog posts, like this one.

Now that I am armed with my critiquing rubric, I can organize the information I gathered on my day trip this past weekend, and finally post the much anticipated recap of my experiences.

No more excuses.
