What made you decide to start blogging?
I’ve always enjoyed writing. From the time I was in 6th grade I had English teachers that encouraged journaling. I still have those journals and treasure them. After I had my children, my journaling days slowed down. Now that the kids are older I have more time to write again.
I enjoy writing about things going on in my life, but I also love to write about random stuff that I see or hear. Writing is cathartic to me. If nobody ever read what I wrote I would still love it.
What else do you enjoy doing?
Besides being madly in love with my family, I’m a self-proclaimed food lover. I like to make food, eat food, and share food. I especially love to bake sweet stuff and because of this have been forced to take up running. I’ve completed 2 half marathons and numerous 5k’s. I’m hoping to knock out a full marathon in the next year. We’ll see……
Edited to add: It’s been 3 years since I wrote the above statement. I never ran that full marathon and any desire I had to run one is now gone. Just thought you’d like to know. :p
Where do you find your recipes and ideas?
I follow quite a few food blogs and have amazingly talented friends that share their recipes. If I come across something amazing I try to share it with you! Every now and then I’ll have a stroke of brilliance and come up with something on my own. “Every now and then” means rarely, but it has happened.
If I use somebody else’s idea, recipes, pictures, etc. I always link back to their page and give proper credit. Please do the same. Feel free to share my blog link and Facebook page link as much as you’d like, but I ask that you not copy and paste any of my posts without permission.
