“Nothing brings people together like good food.”-Unknown
Hello…and welcome to the first posting. So first and foremost, a very real and honest moment right here…I’m scared, nervous and a little overwhelmed by this. And, now another transparent moment, I have no freakin’ clue what I’m doing. And, finally, I’m not a writer, so I’ve got that going for me too!
Ok, now that I’ve got that off my chest. Let’s get to it, shall we?!
Why am I doing this you ask? Well, if you ask my boyfriend, this should have been done a LONG time ago…maybe 3 years ago. You see, I’m pretty boring, if you ask me. I always feel like I don’t have very much interesting going on. I work, from home, have a chocolate lab, who is 10 so we’ve lost all excitement there, and well don’t seem to have many hobbies. Oh sure, I have things I like to do, but I would never say my life is SUPER exciting.
So, what does all of this have to do with starting a blog…and better yet, WHY would I even start one with the super exciting life I lead you may ask?
My boyfriend of almost 4 years, whom I love dearly, is a culinary trained chef. Sure, he has led a very interesting life and has lots of stories to share. We were chatting one night early on in our relationship about starting a food blog. I gotta be honest, I think we were a couple of drinks into this conversation so I’m sure I fully agreed to every word he said. This is also a wonderful gift and talent I have when drinking. Haha!
You see, while he is a culinary trained chef and can make anything and everything, he is also extremely gifted in the fact that he can make the most simple things taste amazing and sometimes expensive but on the cheap. And, well, don’t we all love that.
So, after fighting this blog for several years, and quite honestly, I’ve been fighting simply taking action on something, I’m finally going to take action. I have no clue what I’m doing. I have no clue where this is gonna go. All I know is that I’m just gonna go along for the ride and see where it takes us.
You are welcome to join along on this journey. It will mainly be about food. Maybe simple recipes. Maybe complex ones. Maybe I will sprinkle in some stories of personal things along the way or some random silly thing that happened throughout the days.
Again, I have no clue what I’m doing but I’m ready for the ride. You are welcome to come along. I will make mistakes. I will possibly have grammar errors, but I’m human and just doing this thing called life right along with the rest. So, sit back, relax and enjoy this ride with us.
