Hi, my name is Maria. I’m excited to bring you my very first post & even more thrilled that you’re here reading it. I thought I’d be nervous but actually this is fun. I could write all day long but like any friendship, I think it’s best to go slow and steady when it comes to getting to know one another.
Well it’s no secret, I love food! I buy food magazines, cookbooks, could watch the food channel all day long while eating food. I love trying new recipes and all my social events & catch ups tend to be over food.
I’ve started this blog at a time when I’ve felt I needed to be more creative & stimulated with life. I’ve always had a dream to share my passion with the world but never had any clarity on how to do it so here I am excited and thrilled to do that in the coming weeks, months and hopefully years. I was very much a creative person once upon a time. Life, work & the mundane seemed to take over and slowly I drifted away from the things that made me happy. Cooking, painting, photography, travelling and creating things were my joy in life but recently I realised just how out of touch I’ve become with the very things that brought me so much satisfaction. This blog is my attempt to bring change in my life, push myself outside that comfort area & dabble in something that is foreign to me.
It’s the weekend, I’m clocked off from my corporate life and I’m raring to go. Well kind of, I have so many recipes & ideas for this blog but I need to slow down this fast paced thinking & switch it over to weekend mode. The corporate world offers more than it’s fair share of stress & fast paced days so today, I’m going to chill for a little bit while I contemplate & enjoy this journey. So over to the fridge I go. Well what better way to get creative juices flowing than with a yummy, simple, tasty brekky (Australian slang for breakfast). A toasted english muffin, with a scoop of coconut yogurt & fresh blueberries. It’s honestly the simple things that can make one’s heart content.
So welcome to SundayCalm, I hope you stay awhile & I look forward to creating new friendships & getting to know better.
