I didn’t start this blog to become a world-famous blogger. I didn’t even start this page to necessarily share my love of food with the world, that was just a by-product. I started this blog in 2011 because I needed an outlet and I needed to be held accountable for something in my life as my entire world crumbled around me. There are no adequate words to describe how one person can make a single selfish action that can cause the destruction of so many people’s lives and bring out the worst in so many others. Life has moved on, in that way that it does, taking countless unexpected turns since that horrible day, but nothing has ever been the same. No amount of happiness, joy, or even the answer to that one little question, why, have ever been able to fully heal me to my former self. In part, this blog is in memory of an amazing person who inspired my love of food and challenged me in the kitchen.
Currently, my life is filled with love, laughter, happiness, and a little crazy…ok a LOT of crazy. I have a wonderful husband, a ninja-toddler (seriously, he can climb ANYTHING), a sweet baby boy, 2 dogs, and a cat. We all live in a tiny house and have plans completed for our forever home, now the challenge is finding somebody competent enough to build a house. We have had a lot of trial runs with who not to hire while building our tiny home…one contracted neglected to attach the roof to the house, another failed to keep the walls vertical…both very important features I wish to have in my forever home.
