Hi everyone! We are BACK.
It became necessary to take a sabbatical from writing at The Orchid Blooms, mainly because I started a home bakery (The Luscious Cake Company) which for a minute there kind of took over our lives. You can find it us on Instagram at @luscious_cake_company. I don't seem to know exactly what to do with myself: started as a medical doctor, then went into full-time motherhood, decided to become a writer, and now I'm a baker! I never could definitively answer the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?".
No matter now...here we are again. I've genuinely missed speaking with you guys.
It looks like we have quite a few new readers. Welcome! So glad to have you here. I wanted to post links to how The Orchid Blooms began. I started by sharing our journey through severe postpartum depression with my first child, then depression after we lost our second child, and finally severe postpartum depression coupled with severe anxiety after we had our third child. The journey has been a long and painful one, but thankfully, it has a happy ending.
Welcome to The Orchid Blooms guys. I appreciate you being here, reading what I write.
