My Story | A Work in Progress

I was born and raised in Southwest Florida and graduated from North Fort Myers High School in 2006. I lived in the same house from the time I was 1 through graduating high school and moving out to college. I have a fantastic set of parents and a beautiful younger sister. I went to FGCU my Freshman year of college and decided it wasn’t the place for me and started applying to UCF.
In 2007 I moved to Orlando to attend The University of Central Florida. I started playing Ultimate Frisbee at midnight with a group on campus, and that’s where I met my husband, Justin. He graduated in 2010 and went on to get his Master’s Degree; I graduated in 2011 with my Bachelor’s in Digital Media.
We got married on March 10, 2012, and soon found out we were pregnant with our first child. We had a house built together, and after being there for a few months, our first son, T, was born in June. Right after his first birthday, we found out we were pregnant with our second child.
Halfway through the pregnancy, we decided we wanted to sell our house in Orlando and move to the Houston, TX, area. We moved in December, then in March, our second son, R, was born. Now we are loving the Texas life, living in a great community and raising our adorable, funny, crazy, loving boys together.
We love to try new foods and new recipes. I am always cooking up something new, and constantly have others asking for my recipes. That’s why I decided to start this blog! I love to cook, I love to bake, and even more important, I love to eat! We have been working on a backyard garden so we can grow our own food as well.
In a nutshell: I am a native Floridian living in Texas who loves to be in the kitchen cooking, baking, organizing, and making delicious new foods for my family. Also known as boy-mom, wife, daughter, sister, photographer, nerd, adventure-seeker, beach-lover.
