It’s been a while since I’ve taken a 7-day break from blogging. And you know what it’s clarified? It clarified that I obsess—a lot and I suffer from a little bad faith (and I don’t mean in the religious sense). That’s right, I had a week long battle with my annoying self.
In the background of that, I did a lot of Instagramming to try to combat the ebbing creativity. If you follow me there, then you know I go through these manic periods of shooting a lot to almost none. Which by the way, dear friends, PLEASE tell me when I write maniac instead of manic. Because I’m pretty sure given the two, manic is the lesser one. (Of course I’m viewing the two as wholly separate of one of another rather than one being a derivative of the other). For real—look, “manic” even has one less letter.
Alright, never mind the shoddy logic on that one, because here’s what I can admit and many of you know—I’m hyper critical of myself. Easy to admit, much harder to change. So last week’s long hiatus—you know where it led me? It led me here, rationalizing and explaining myself.
As I said bad faith—I’ll get there though, and when I do, that annoying self will be giving me a high-fiving goodbye. The upside of all this back-forth rattling around in my head is at least it’s getting too crowded for a creative funk, so yay to finding my way out of that one.
Hit the jump to Better Homes and Gardens’ blog Delish Dish for the recipe to the Cantaloupe & Basil and Watermelon Berry Mint Sorbet.
As always, if I can please ask you guys–if you are going to pin any of the images please do so from Delish Dish and not here, since the recipes reside over there. Thanks!

When it comes to not trusting ourself I can say I rank pretty high…. Lol sometime I just don’t know how to stop my brain working so hard on criticizing me and let it work on being happy about me…. It seems like a never ending effort..
This looks beautiful, as always I’m loving the pics, the colors, the light everything from scoops to sorbets…
Heading to check the recipe.
What stunning photos!

Also stuck in a funky week cycle. You’re not alone! I’m glad you’re comfortable enough to post about it though, makes the rest of us also struggling feel a little less alone 🙂
