What do I say about me? There are so many facets to my personality and person that it’s hard to nail it down to just a few highlights.
Where to Begin?
I’m a Florida girl who eventually found her way back to the Sunshine state, where I live with my wonderful Hubs and five Australian Shepherds. You can read more about how our pack came to be on my original blog, Aussie Momma. They are a huge part of our lives and make my world a little brighter.
In November 2018, I gave birth to a beautiful little boy, Christian Rory Alan. Even though he is no longer with us, he continues to be my reason for being. My first blog, Aussie Momma, is all about him and life with grief. He is the reason I first started blogging and why I am taking this big step to blog about my baking.
But the reason I started baking is a whole other story. I started baking with my mom when I was little because she was always making elaborate and delicious cakes for our birthdays. I wanted to be like her, so I helped out. As I have gotten older I have continued to push myself and try new things in the kitchen. I definitely favor baking over cooking!
Baking brings me joy and keeps me calm during times of stress. I usually bake the most during the fall and winter because the holidays inspire me in the kitchen with their color and flavor. However, while traversing my grief journey, baking has been a way for me to escape my sadness and melancholy for a while.
If you’d like to hear more from me, check out my first blog, Aussie Momma. I chronicle my grief journey there. I also have two Facebook pages, one for my blog Aussie Momma Blog, and one for my Hello Pink biz, Aussie Momma Boutique. Feel free to follow me on there! And don’t forget to come over and pin lost of sweet things with me on Pinterest!
