Julie and Julia

I just finished watching Julie and Julia on DVD. It is about the beginning of Julia Child’s career as a chef, and at the same time it is about Julie Powell who goes on a mission to cook every recipe in Julia Child’s cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking which she documents in a blog. I enjoyed the movie, it was both touching and funny. Plus the food looked fabulous! But what really struck a cord with me was Julie’s blogging. She had a passion for cooking and a passion for blogging. It made me start to think about why I quit blogging.

I really don’t have to think to hard. I quit blogging about 6 months ago, at the same time my husband left.
Funny thing, finally no one is around to complain about how much time I spend on the computer, and I quit blogging.

Well thanks to the movie, I hope I am back. The husband isn’t, and I’ll probably talk more about that later. But for now I have new plans and a new life ahead, and I’ll have lots to blog about!

  1. I’m so glad you’re back blogging. It’s a way for me to stay in touch with you. It’s also a way for you to stay in touch with what you want to do.

    I agree with you on Julie and Julia. It was a great movie. It almost – I say almost – made me want to go and cook something. (grin)

    Love, Mom
