A Recipe for the Unexpected

Well, well, well...
What is going on this week? 
I'm sure by now you may have noticed that I didn't put a recipe up yesterday. 
Let me tell you a little story...
I'm a bit of a control-freak when it comes to my home, my work, and my goals. The hardest thing for a gal like me is to accept when things don't go as planned - and to not beat myself up. There's something to be gained from situations that we can't control, right? For me it comes down to peace; taking a break, a couple of deep breaths, a long run on the beach, and gaining perspective. Knowing that I can't do everything all of the time, and knowing that I'm still "okay". 
Sure, sometimes it's easier said than done - but what I'm confronting this week is "being okay" with not being able to do as much as I'd like to on AtV, and in other areas of my life as well. 
The beauty in this? I know I'll bounce back! But rather than bouncing back out of frustration from failed plans and goals, bouncing back from a more healthy emotional place. 
*Whew* It's kind of exhausting!
I am SO grateful to be able to share with you all what I am truly deeply passionate about.
Addicted to Veggies has turned into so much more than just a recipe site for me. It's become a way to reach out to wonderful people who, like myself, share an intense love of food. 
I hope you'll excuse my break in recipes this week.
I have a LOT to catch up on, a lot of yummy recipes, and a lot of big changes!
I can even begin to tell you how bright the future looks when you truly take care of yourself in the present.
