I’m just a southern gal, raising two girls, cooking her heart out and creating memories like there’s no tomorrow.
I’m a hardworking work-from-home mom who loves her family more than life itself, sees a lot of things in this world that don’t make sense, and tries to make each day a little brighter for the people she loves.
I love to write, love to read, love to create. Whether it’s a good meal, a scrapbook, or something intangible like a story, I’m always creating.
I love to watch people… imagine what their life story is and what motivates them as they pass by.
I believe in looking for the best in everyone and everything and that we are all here for a reason (even if we haven’t discovered that purpose yet).
I also believe that everything happens the way that it is supposed to and it usually works out for the best if you just have faith and a little (or a lot) of patience.
I’m fairly silly and have a “commentator” that sits on my shoulder and sometimes takes over my mouth or keyboard to voice her opinions. (so don’t be surprised when she chimes in)
In 2010, I had gastric bypass surgery and subsequently lost over 100 pounds. This journey of rediscovering myself and developing lifelong healthy habits is chronicled in this blog from time to time.
You’ll also find recipes and stories from my kitchen. I love to bake and cook and entertain. I’m also quite happy to share my successes (and failures!) with you so you can give them a try in your own kitchen.
My family is the most important thing in my life and many of my posts are related to parenting and raising two beautiful girls.
Honestly, anything goes here – whatever is on my mind is fair game – silly or serious, you just never know.
Thank you so much for stopping by, leaving your comments and sharing in this insanity called my life. I love hearing from you and knowing that I’m not really just talking to myself here!
