As you already know, I’m thrilled to be working with Cracker Barrel Cheese throughout this summer to bring you some delicious ideas and recipes. With Memorial Day get-togethers just around the corner, you may even have an excuse to put some of these wonderful recipes to use.
In addition to always having copious amounts of cheese in my house, this partnership has allowed me to further explore my passion. I think it’s so important to push ourselves into uncharted territory in an effort to do the things we really love. So what is this passion?
Well, over the years I’ve come to realize that I have a passion for styling. Starting this blog has allowed me to see, practice, and explore this passion. Although I’ve always had a love of design and beautiful things, I only realized recently that I get true joy from making things look beautiful. Whether it is a cake, a nightstand, a piece of cheese, or my kitchen – the happiness I get out of creating these spaces and things is indescribable. And that’s truly what passion is all about. Whether I’m actually good at it is debatable. But that’s not the point here. The feeling I get from creating is what really matters. Sharing it with all of you is icing on the cake. I’m so thankful to the folks at Cracker Barrel for giving me the opportunity to work with them. It has really allowed me to further explore my passion for styling. Over the course of this opportunity, I’ve learned valuable lessons on food pairing and stylings. Now, I get to experiment with these skills and share them with you. Plus, it all involves cheese. Talk about a dream come true! My challenge to you today is to pursue your passion. Make time in your busy schedule to do the things you love. I promise you will be glad you did. Let me know in the comments below, what is YOUR passion?
