Just some thoughts…

Dear Real Girls Kitchen readers,

It has been quite a while since I have just typed up a letter to you guys to catch up on life and I think it is about time! The last few months have been such a whirlwind I can’t even tell you. I have been so happy, enjoying “engaged life” and watching Real Girls Kitchen grow it’s audience on Cooking Channel. Life has been giving me some serious rewards and they are not lost on me.

My best friend from childhood just came to spend the weekend with me and we spent a lot of time just sitting back and reflecting on life. It is so special to enjoy time with someone that you enjoyed time with (dare I say) over 15 years ago. She has this great ability to break down life and that is really what we did. She reminded me to open my eyes and enjoy all these wonderful moments. To not focus of the negative thoughts that seep in…and to keep my heart open. To experience all this with love by my side is something truly special too.

I tend to shy away from red carpets and the ever so sly LA paparazzi…mostly because I am just simply not very good at it! That being said, I have been doing some serious show promotion! I’ve putting myself out there so much more than I usually do. I have really started to love all the cooking demos that I have been doing and meeting some of you along the way has been so much fun. It is a scary thing to open up your life and yourself for people and obviously… their opinions. I want you to know how grateful I am for all of the support! The way you all have embraced our show and have made my recipes in your own home is honestly the greatest gift. I have had the best time making this show, and am really enjoying all your wonderful messages! Thank you!

Love, HD
