1 year Blogiversary + Meet My Family and I!

My little piece of the internet is now 1 year old! Wow, that was fast! I wasn’t sure if I would be able to add blogging into my busy life, but here I am 1 year later and it’s working well. If you look back at my first few posts, I had no idea what I was doing. I’m thankful for my sister in law who helped out in the first three months with recipes. We now look back at the beginning and have a laugh. I have learned a lot about blogging, and I am sure I have million more things to figure out.

This past spring I turned thirty, a number I thought sounded old a decade ago. Being thirty is actually very young, it feels like life is just getting started.

Here is half of thirty (15) facts about me:

    1. I have three fun, creative, and awesome sisters.
    2. Soup is my favorite type of food.
    3. I’m crazy about organic products.
    4. I have a huge love for lemons.
    5. Tea drinker.
    6. I am a mom to three boys: Timothy, Daniel, and Max.
    7. Husband and I moved 11 times in our nine years together. (We are very spontaneous).
    8. I have been in the audience of a live taping of a talk show, which is a checkmark off my bucket list.
    9. My favorite place that I ever traveled to was Sydney, Australia.
    10. I like to read good books.
    11. At 21, I owned a house.
    12. I never went to a Russian school, but know how to read, write, and speak Russian.
    13. I went to college for a paralegal.
    14. Personally, I would love to visit London someday.
    15. Gordon Ramsey is my favorite food star. I love his restaurants, food, and shows.

I wish everyone a fantastic holiday season. Whichever holiday you celebrate, I hope you have a good time with your family and friends. Take a moment to remember the reason for the season, eat good food, and good luck with your New Year’s resolutions!
