It's been a while since I last sat and wrote a blog post! I cannot believe how fast these winter months have gone by and hooray, its summer again. So.... here’s what going on in my life:
Today was my last day at my current job. For the past 5 years I have been working as a Nutritionist for a community program for women, babies and kids. My work was primarily with infants and children and I enjoyed every bit of it. It was a bitter sweet goodbye this evening when I cleaned out my desk drawers and packed up my personal belongings, turned in my keys and ID badge, and said goodbye to great friends. I feel that I have grown so much just by being part of the lives of these families and I know I will miss it.
Although it is difficult to make changes, and to close an important chapter of my life, I am thrilled for a new beginning. I am going to be working at another program as an infant feeding specialist and lactation consultant, still working with families, facilitating group education and hopefully some private counseling in my free time.

The most exciting thing is that I have the rest of this week and next week off! Free to do whatever I want. So I plan to be trying out some new recipes to share on the blog, using my grille for the first time this season, and Thursday is the first day of my farm share. As some of you may already know, for the past 2 years I have participated in Community Shared Agriculture. Basically what it is is a membership to a farm where each week you receive fruits and vegetables, locally grown, usually organic or low spray. I have chosen my membership at Red Fire Farm in Granby, MA. They offer pick up locations all over the Boston area.
So just a quick update…stay tuned for more after Thursday’s fruit and veggie pick up!
