Back to the café

I don't even know where to begin. So much has happened in my life that it's almost silly to play catch-up. But if there's one thing I've learned in the past few years, it's that we have a surprising capacity to love, feel, and experience life. And more importantly, that I myself have an earnest need to express all of that. Despite my hesitation to call myself a "creative individual" (even if I work in the creative field),  I realized that I indeed have the hunger to create. I need an outlet to fill that creative craving and every artist needs a stage, right? 

So that's why I'm back.

My blog milk and honey café is more appropriate than ever. I started and named this blog after a café that I hoped to open one day. It was a cheesy and ambitious dream of a university student 8 years ago. (Can you believe it's been 8 years?) I named it milk and honey, after the promise that God makes to His people - that He would deliver His people from slavery and pain, to a prosperous land that God has prepared. I wanted a café where people could go to find peace, beauty and community. And so I made a blog that shared bits and pieces of my life that brought me peace, showed me beauty and gave me community - through FOOD! I baked and baked and baked, mostly because I was a hungry college student and had lots of free time and even more hungry friends. I baked so much that people still know me as Sarah the Baker (I actually just ran into a friend today and asked me how my baking business was going haha). I was never a professional baker and I hardly bake any more, but I want to continue this blog—not necessarily as a baking blog—but a place to share life, just like how I intended my café to be. I want to talk about motherhood (oh yes! I am a mother now!), design inspirations (if you didn't know, I am a graphic designer by profession), craft ideas, music and, yup, lots of recipes too. 

It's gonna be tough to commit, I know.  I'm a new mom – I barely have time to do chores and sleep, let alone quality time for myself! But I'm gonna take it post by post and just enjoy it! And I really hope you enjoy it too. Let's share fun and lovely stuff in our lives, laugh a lot (mostly at me) and get inspired. 

Wanna sit down and stay a little while?

p.s. I just revamped the design of the blog but there may be a few discrepancies for all of the older posts. If the photos look a bit wonky and if there are missing links, I apologize! Let's just pretend it looks okay, yeah? Thanks!
