Lemon Mousse with Strawberry Compote

Lemon Mousse with Strawberry Compote

So. That happened. Somehow 4 months just sort of got away from me. It started out as an intentional break that was only supposed to be a few weeks but I kept extending my break and then life got in the way and then I wasn’t sure how or even if I wanted to come back at all. But I finally realized that I was just letting all my insecurities take over and that’s BS. I love cooking and taking photos and I just needed to get out of my own way and jump right in the same way I did a little over 4 years ago when I started this blog. So I’m back. Maybe not better than ever, but I’m here and that’s all that counts.

In the past 4 months I’ve had some fairly large life changes. No, I’m not pregnant. (Is it just me or is EVERYONE pregnant or just had a baby?) But I did move to a whole new state. Well, actually it’s not a new state because I lived here for most of 7th to 12th grade, but it is a new city. My boyfriend’s company moved their offices to Nashville, Tennessee, and we decided to go along. Most of Brandon’s family lives in TN and we both went to high school in a teeny-tiny mountain town about 2 hours from Nashville so it made the most sense to move to a place that was at least somewhat familiar. I know most people wouldn’t consider Nashville to be a big town but after living in Charlottesville for 3 years it feels gigantic so I’m still getting my bearings despite being here for almost 2 months.
