Welcome to the Rest of My Life

I've decided to stop feeling guilty about not having posted at Low-Fat Kat for awhile.  I kept feeling the urge to blog, to share, to prove that I'm still hanging in there, but I've been tired of talking about weight loss for a long time now. I've maintained pretty well - have put on a few pounds since last year that I'm well on my way to taking off, but I'm attempting to take a more well-rounded approach.  I'm trying to eat more intuitively, cut out artificial junk, trying to suppress my sweet tooth...I'm figuring out a lot of things on my own and don't necessarily want to report my trials and tribulations on a grand scale.  I'm not saying I'll never post there again, but there are things I want to share that are beyond Low-Fat Kat's scope.

So here we are.  I've started A Cordial Life to be a slice-of-life kind of blog.  You'll still find some posts about recipes and healthy cooking, but some recipes may be more "once-in-awhile" fare. I'd like to feature crafts and DIY projects, design, house projects, event planning, and everything else that makes me tick.  
Why "A Cordial Life?"  I wanted a word to describe two of my personal missions - being nice and being hospitable.  We've owned our house for almost a year now, and from the get-go I knew I wanted to entertain as often as possible.  While we've done that to an extent, we still have a way to go to make our home more comfortable for ourselves and our guests.  I've realized how much my home means to me and how much I enjoy being creative and productive and showing off the fruits of my labor.  I don't always feel like "humblebragging" on Facebook, but where better to do that than a blog, am I right?

So pour yourself a drink (coffee, wine, bourbon, beer - all things I LOVE) and hang out for awhile!  I've got plenty to share!
