Welcome! For years I have toyed with the idea of creating a blog to share my favorite recipes, hostessing photos and of course some good cleaning tips! After many “how to” you tube videos, I finally figured out how to get this site up and running…so I think. Bear with me as I work out some of the kinks. I had a goal of getting it up and running by the time I turn 30. Well true to form, I’m launching with an hour before the clock strikes the big 3-0!! I know, now you are thinking…and you are??

 Ever since I was a little girl I watched my Mom decked out in pearls and a freshly pressed apron, create beautiful tablescapes and prepare delectable 5 course meals for Gourmet Club, fit for the cover of Bon Appetite, all with elegance and grace. Yeah right!

My mom was an amazing career woman, and even more incredible mother, who was determined to have it all. So yes when guests arrived things were picture perfect, but the scene before was my Mom in a ratty t-shirt covered in flour, running around like a mad woman, yelling for me to get out of her way as she furiously threw the dishes in the dishwasher and swooped up the rest of the mess into her beloved junk drawer!

I have grown up to be just like her, well about 8 inches shorter hence my pint size, and have learned that you can juggle it all. I believe that you can have a career, bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies, and make it to spin class on time! Oh yeah, and my kitchen might smell of clorox as I leave for the gym, boy do I hate a mess!

This blog is my journey, rather my crazy adventure of being a career woman, a hostess, a cook, a baker, an eater, and a darn good homemaker!
