This blog began as an outlet for me to prove to myself that I was capable of accomplishing more in my days than what I had settled for. My life had become a daily routine of raising our 4 children and keeping our home running. Months and then years passed and I felt that the little I had accomplished was all that I could use to define myself. I know the things I have done are important but they weren’t enough. I wasn’t giving myself a chance to pursue things that made me feel capable and talented. I still have a daiy routine of raising our kids and keeping our home running smoothly but I am also consciously making sure that I balance that part of my life with the things that bring me joy and pride.
Cooking and Photography are my passions and I get thrills pursuing those two things. I love simple southern food and making plenty to share with others. I photograph everything from food to old rusty nails and fluffy clouds. I never leave home without my camera for fear that I will see a photographic moment that I will regret not capturing. I find myself pulled over to the side of a road, photographing whatever has caught my eye.
