Hi!  A bit about me.  Born and bred in Houston, Texas, I'm a 42 year old who currently lives in Chicago, IL which is my 20th move.  Prior to Chi-Town, I lived in Japan for 5+ years and all over the US.  I love all things creative and have been in event planning for years and owned my own cupcakery for awhile and love to cook and bake.  I also love hobbies and learn most everything on youTube.  This long list includes photography, editing, painting, baking, cooking ethnic dishes and most recently sewing!  I have been secretly blogging life for years (as in cooking like I'm on a cooking show, taking photos of my creations like I am selling things and developing recipes and life hacks for funsies.  My family finally convinced me that it was time to actually start a blog (not so secretly) so I can share my recipes with them!  So, while I'm on the mature side (42!) and not very tech savvy, I am going to give this a try. Hopefully, if you have made it this far, you might be interested in some of the things that I love.  Worst case, I have one place where I can keep all my favorite things and can easily share with my favorite people!
