Ultimate Blog Party 2014 #UPB14

Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Well hello! It is that time of year again… time for the Ultimate Blog Party, brought to you by 5 Minutes for Mom. I always enjoy this blog party. It’s such a fun way to connect with other bloggers and discover great new reads. (But you probably know that already!)

A little about the blog. . .  I write about a little of this and a little of that. I write about food and crochet a lot! I love cooking and trying out new recipes. Sadly, I have not had as much time for crochet lately as I would like, but I’m definitely trying to make time for it because it is good for my soul.



If you look to the sidebar on your right, you’ll see a list with some of my more popular posts. Somehow, that recipe for Glitter Grapes is still my most popular! (They are really good… I think so anyway!).

A little bit about me. . .  My family and I live in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley. If you’re a knitter or fiber enthusiast, you might be familiar with the area since Rhinebeck is where a very large Sheep & Wool Festival takes place every fall. While I grew up in western Massachusetts, the HV really is a beautiful adopted home.

My husband and I have three children. Jake is my 11 year old, Noah is 8, and Laura is 4. They definitely keep me on my toes!

 I work part-time as a library clerk, a job I absolutely love! I also help manage our summer reading program and head up our library summer camp. It’s wonderful seeing kids get excited about reading! I’ve also done a lot of freelance writing, I’ve owned a wine shop, and I’ve been managing editor of a telecommunications magazine.

I guess the best way to “get to know me” is just by snooping around my blog. Check out a recipe or two, see what I’ve been hooking up, or just what’s new in my life.

I am really looking forward to visiting everyone and hopefully making some new bloggy friends! Thanks for stopping by — be sure to leave a comment so I know you were here and I promise to make a return visit to your blog. Have a great day! Oh, and you can follow my blog with Bloglovin!

P.S. Feel free to keep up with me on FacebookTwitterPinterest, or Instagram, and Google+ too!
