So … welcome to my blog! I spent a lot of time thinking about doing this blog. Something funny would happen and I would say “oooh, I should write about that in my blog!” Every time I talked to my sisters on the phone, I inevitably brought up the future blog that all 3 of us would contribute amazing recipes to. Even my husband eventually said the sentence “You should put that in your blog.” Never mind that “my blog” actually didn’t exist. Except in our minds. Until the fateful day of June 8th, 2010. So welcome.
I thought long and hard about how to introduce myself, to be personal without spilling my guts all over the world wide web, but also relevant and thought-provoking. What would make me stand out from the million-bajillion other blogs? What if no one liked my recipes? What if I posted a picture that wasn’t perfectly exposed and sharp? And then I realized that probably only my sisters would ever look at this, and I laughed hysterically. And decided that I would write about whatever I felt like. So this is not a food blog per se, though I love cooking and plan on posting many recipes … it’s not a photography blog, though hopefully it will motivate me to learn how to use my Nikon D5000 and do some mean Photoshop … and it’s not my online journal, though I may wax personal and reminisce about my wonderful and ridiculous childhood. A lot. You can feel free to skip those parts.
I have 2 wonderful sisters, Erica and Heidi, who I talk about kind of a lot. We grew up in Spain as MK’s (missionary kids) and all moved back to the States to go to college, where all three of us double majored in French and something else. In fact, to give you an uncanny detail, we all (during different years) lived in the exact same dorm room at Indiana University, Forest A #418. I got married in 2005, a year after graduating, and have been working full time in sales/office environments since then. Both of my sisters have also encountered the love of their lives, and married the lucky guys straightaway. A small nephew named James has recently joined the world via my sister Heidi.
Right now my husband and I live in Chicago. We love the city and love our apartment. We go to a great church. I work in an office for a fantastic boss. The future is rich with possibilities, including small and cute alien-type beings otherwise known as children (though I’m only thinking of having them because they will generate hilarious blog posts).
I love hearing back from readers, so feel free to leave your thoughts in the “comments” section, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every comment is read and appreciated!
