Thank you all so much for your wonderful and encouraging comments over the last few years since I’ve experimented with throwing my random thoughts, recipes, and projects out there into the world.  I know most of you found this little blog through Pinterest or other sites that featured my “Happy Stacker” ring toy, my latches board, and other various projects, and for your comments and trackbacks and pins I am eternally grateful.

While this blog has meant so much to me, since giving birth to my daughter Elliott I haven’t found enough time to devote to blogging.  You can be sure I’m still off making creations in my sewing room (and recently purchased an embroidery machine, tons of fun there), and in my kitchen, but alas I haven’t been successful in finding the time to blog about my projects (nor have I found a suitable location in my new home with the perfect natural light to photograph said projects).

In what came as a great surprise to me, I thoroughly enjoyed the last several months focusing on the “Domestic” in DomesticEsq.  But I also discovered that I’m not yet ready to hang up my briefcase or retire my Bar card, and at present I’ve shifted gears to focus more attention on the “Esq” part.  To that end I am working on building a mediation practice.  It is my hope that serving as a mediator will allow me the freedom to work part time and care for my family but also the satisfaction of helping those in conflict.

In the meantime, I will continue to strive for happiness and balance (between the Domestic and the Esq sides of me).  I may entertain the sudden urge to post a special recipe or project from time to time, but for the most part this little blog of mine will be on (what I hope will be a temporary) hiatus.



  1. Tamara- I’ll be sad to see you go. I’ve been following you for a while and love your encouraging recipes, projects, and witty sense of humor. You are a testament to all us girls who are trying to find balance as career girls and mothers. Best of luck and I hope you come back to the blogosphere soon.
