Here we go… again!

I have been talking about it for a while, I know.  A new blog. A FANCY new blog. Something to look forward to! It’s been so long since I started working on this with my dear friend Bronson Pate that I honestly don’t remember when it started! I DO know that I could be tweaking and changing and re-shooting things for the rest of my life and at some point I just had to decide – it is done! That point is now.

Do you LOVE my new blog???? Because I do! I am honestly so proud of all the hard work that went into it from so many lovely people. I am so excited to have something I’m this excited about that is ALL MINE! Kristin Eats. It’s me! I eat! I live to tell stories that generally involve eating!

I love getting to share this part of me with friends and family and strangers all over the planet.  Hooray for today! For today is the beginning of a new era in the life of Kristin Murdock.  The official beginning of Kristin Eats.

LIFE: I am grateful.

I’ve been having more “poor me” days than “i am grateful” days lately.  Although I readily jump all over (or roll my eyes at) people who act like martyrs, I think it might be one of those situations where the characteristic you despise in others is actually a MASSIVE PLANK sticking our of your eye. Woopsie!  When things, however big or small, seem like they are headed to hell in a hand-basket (like that 1940’s era phrase?) I have a hard time remembering all the great things I have been given, and reminding myself that the future, indeed, IS bright.

But TODAY — today I am living in gratitude.  For the job I enjoy that allows me to use my strengths, even if it’s in little ways.  For friends who have my back no matter what.  For sister #3 who just moved here from Boston and helps me with the dishes. For my lovely husband who never never never never gives up even when it feels like everything is going wrong.

I, Kristin Murdock, am grateful.
