Quick update from Marinda!

My gosh! I can't believe we have neglected our dear blog for a good seven months! Which also goes to show how time really flies!

I guess we were both just little miss perfectionists and felt like everything had to be perfect before we can publish a post and it made updating our blog seem more like a chore and we seriously dragged our feet. But it shouldn't be like that! It should be fun, and random even (like this post), as long as it genuinely captures the essence of our lives, our thoughts, whatever we feel like conveying to the world and hopefully - interesting enough for our readers to read. And even if it isn't, who cares! Okay, maybe we do.. just a bit!

So from here on out, both Marinda AND Leigh are committed to update our blog on a regular basis! So hope y'all tune in ;-)

We have some exciting announcements coming up soon regarding our new direction of our businesses and what's coming up for us in the next couple months!

Ok that's it for now! Since there's no real relevant photo for this random post, I will just post a photo of this adorable kitten which represents my expression of how sorry I am that we have neglected to update this blog for so long =P

2015 Good Food & Wine Show and Homemade High Tea - A weekend of good food!

First post of the year. *cough* a little late, yes I know.

We've been taking a long hiatus here at Marinda Leigh. Partly because we've been lazy and partly because there have been so many things going on in our lives. We've been living, loving and laughing.

But for me, it hasn't been all life, love and laughs. There were so many tears as well. I went from one end of the spectrum to another. From planning our wedding vows to me desperately, irrationally screaming at him to get out of my life. People say the first year of marriage is the hardest. I say the first year of living together is the hardest.

The stresses of life really got to me this year and I took it all out on the one person who loves me unconditionally. I could have been better these past few months. We both could have been better. We could have had more love rather than resentment; we could have had affinity rather than hostility; we could have worked together. And that's the past which I've put behind me and what better way to a fresh start than good food and wine?

The husbie got us tickets for the 2015 Good Food & Wine Show months ago and we were both so looking forward to it! After everything we went through over the past couple of months, it seemed a great re-start. Delicious red wine, sumptuous deletable food! How could you not fall in love again?

One thing I am 100% sure of is that food brings people together. Food is about love and fun and laughter.

We eat and we love.
