I’m a life blogger.
Or maybe I’m a food blogger who can’t make up her mind. Hmm, sounds like me!
Either way, I’m glad you’re here! I started this blog when we found out we were moving from Ohio to New York to keep in touch with family and friends. Actually, it was just great timing; I’d been toying with the idea of starting a blog for awhile. It’s right up my alley; I’m a writer by trade and, as my tagline reads, “…at least I’m not talking just to myself anymore.”
I taught myself to cook (with a lot of help from the Food Network!) after college and quickly discovered a passion for food. I love to both cook and bake, and consider every recipe I make a personal challenge for perfection. With an unending supply of ingredients, I would be in my kitchen all day.
More recently, I’ve become interested in the nutrition side of food. After losing 20 pounds just by counting my calories, I realized I’d discovered another passion: health and wellness, specifically healthy eating. I want to know more about eating for a healthy body and life.
And I’ve always wanted to write. I wrote stories as a kid, edited the high school yearbook and then wrote for my college newspaper, as well as the base newspaper during my time in the service. And now here I am blogging.
I got my degree in Journalism from Penn State in 2005 and then served as a Public Affairs Officer in the U.S. Air Force for four years. I’ve been out of the workforce for a little while and am ready to make something of myself. I don’t want to be a chef, a personal trainer or a beat reporter, so…
…I’m going back to school! My dream is to be a health food writer, a perfect marriage of both my love of writing and healthy eating, and I need to get the credentials to do it! Namely, to become a Registered Dietician (R.D.). I’ll be starting with the core classes, like BIOs and CHEMs, at a local community college before heading to Buffalo State for another undergraduate degree, a B.S. in Dietetics. I have a long road ahead of me, but I’m embracing the challenge and excited to learn about something that truly interests me.
Join me as I juggle being a wife, runner and cook, all while hitting the books!
