Why I Love a Messy Kitchen

Baking has always been a hobby of mine but since I have been married I have barely been doing it. Mostly, I haven’t been baking because I didn’t want to spend hours cleaning up the mess I made when I was doing it. I always looked at the mess as a nuisance and something that was just part of the job. Now, I have learned to love my messy kitchen.

Love Came to the Party

How many people make it to their 85th birthday? THE CUTE LADY IN PURPLE! 17 members of my extended family all met in Palm Springs, California to celebrate my grandma’s birthday. Most of these people were ones that Zach has not seen since the wedding back in March. The best part? He had a great time getting to know some of them and Grandma felt loved and celebrated.

What Have I Gotten Myself Into...

Hey guys! Let me just start out by saying that I am just as surprised as you are that I am starting a blog. Never in a million years did I think I would be one of those milenials that starts a blog about her life and expects other people to find it interesting enough to read. In fact, I am pretty sure I have asked my husband (in the privacy of our own home) “Who on Earth thinks their life is so interesting that other people want to read about it?” And yet, here I am. Starting a blog about my life and wondering if, in fact, my life will be one that is interesting enough for family and friends to read about in their free time.

Heres a little back ground… Zach, my husband, and I both hate having our pictures taken. Since we hate photos so much we are practically non-non-existent on social media. Just the other day we were sitting around talking about our favorite memories we have made over the past 7 1/2 years with each other and wishing we had done a better job of documenting some of the special things we had done together to look back on. I decided to make it one of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2019 to make sure I get evidence of some of the really cool and memorable things we do this year.

Once I set the goal of documenting our year together, I realized I was never going to accomplish this without a plan. With the whole “photo aversion” issue, scrapbooking is obviously out of the picture. Plus, let's be real, even if I was going to try to attempt to scrapbook I would probably be a whole year behind by next December anyways. Even with Shutterfly and other online scrapbooks I would still have to store them and figure out what to do with them and lets just be honest- I sill have boxes sitting in one of our spare rooms from when I moved in after the wedding. Clearly if I cant even deal with that I don’t need to be bringing more stuff into our house. So, after talking to a few of my #inspirational friends that all have blogs, I decided to try this out. Hopefully it all goes well and I find a great way to keep track of Zach’s and my life together. Maybe I will even find that I have a new hobby!
