Heidi from Tried-and-True Cooking with Heidi passed along an award to me and I can't begin to tell you how much it meant! This has been one of those weeks in which anything and everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong, so I very much appreciated the little "pick me up". I just found out this evening that my grandfather's health is declining, which is extremely difficult for me to come to terms with. Being a nurse, I'm forced to deal with patients passing away, but it's a whole different story when it affects you personally. It certainly puts everything into perspective and makes you realize just how precious life is and that every day truly is a gift.
On a happier note, I now have the privilege of passing this award onto seven other bloggers...several are blogs I have only recently started following, but greatly enjoy!
If you were to look up the word "picky" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of my husband off to the left. Growing up, I was exposed to all sorts of different foods and encouraged to experiment with different flavors, but after meeting my husband, I somewhat locked myself into an eight to ten meal rotation and was reluctant to deviate. I have since given birth to two of the least picky eaters on the face of the Earth, thus inspiring me to transform my cooking style. I know many people, like myself, lead such hectic lives, so I strive to find recipes that are quick and easy--especially those that you can whip up with ingredients that you ordinarily have on hand!
A bit about me...I married my husband, Marcus, on June 1, 2003 and we welcomed our son Jacob on March 22, 2005. Our daughter, Madeline, was born on March 1, 2008. I stay home with the kids for the most part, but also work occasional shifts as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I truly hope you enjoy my blog. A special "thank you" to my sister, Sarah, for giving me the idea! Her creativity is hard to live up to, but I'm a very determined person and hope to make her proud :)
