Hello Year 27! I remember thinking as a child and teen that adulthood would never come. Technically speaking, I am a “successful” adult by standard norms, but I often ask myself, “What do I really want to do when I grow up?” I guess that’s not such a bad question to be asking, and is probably the main reason why I am starting this next journey with blogging. I am in uncharted territory here, so please be in touch with your thoughts and honest feedback. I can assure you there will be lots to do with 3 of my favorite things: family, food, and running.
For starters, I’m happy you’re here! So, who am I? Well, I am “me” because of my amazing family! My family (and in-laws) are some of the most kind and fun people you could ever meet. I am one of six children, and our names happen to be alphabetized starting with the letter J (JKLMNO). More on that fun fact later… This sounds cliché, but I am married to the man of my dreams (Rob or Rob Baby, as I tend to call him), and we currently reside in the Chicago suburbs. Please keep in mind that I am NOT a city girl, and my husband could certainly attest to that. He has even promised me we will someday live in a home where I can have a real farm pig! As you have probably already gathered, my main hobbies are baking, running, and spending time with my loved ones. I love a good challenge and am usually up for just about anything outdoors. Lastly, I am a registered dietitian and work in a unique regulatory role at a distribution company. If you ever have food labeling questions, I am your girl!
On this blog, you will find recipes, photos, stories, reviews, and hopefully some inspiration! I want to post about real life activities and all of the joy that can be found even in the simple things! Enough with the introductions; it’s time for me to start “blogging”!
