This blog started out in 2015 as a record of a year-long gap year: an experiment in enjoyment, prompted by half a pizza.
Things kind of developed in unexpected ways… my gap year was rudely interrupted by a severe relapse of depression (you may notice some missing months if you look at the archive!)
The blog continues to be a place for me to explore what it’s like to seek joy and beauty while living with mental illness. I write about motherhood a lot and am still figuring out how to achieve that elusive balance between rest, work and play. I still love a good pizza and you will find a few recipes scattered through the blog. Welcome, I hope you’ll stay a while.
