The Blog Begins

As a stay-at-home mommy and wife, my day is filled with running errands, cleaning, baking, cooking and chasing after my 9-month-old baby girl, Chloe. Like I say in my "About" page, I LOVE ♥ Love ♥ LOVE being a homemaker. It is my childhood dream come true. There are plenty of day-to-day challenges (sometimes I mentally go insane...haha) but I know there is no job that could possibly be more rewarding.

Now this mama is finally starting a blog! I think its going to be fun sharing the journey of our family on here. And as a plus, in case you didn't know, Blurb.com (and probably other sites) can turn your blogs into books. Amazing. Definitely what I want to do if I keep up with blogging.

For my first blog post, I don't have anything too exciting to say about the day. I'm thanking God so much for our central air though. For the past couple days, it has been in the high 90's. And despite the firey temperature outside, I was even able to bake a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and not suffer from heat stroke. 

I can't help but be slightly proud of the pie... it looks and smells so good. If I wasn't on a 1500-calorie-a-day diet then I would probably eat most of it! Seeing as how there is 500 calories in just one piece, I'm gonna have to pass. All the more for my hubby to enjoy, I suppose. The picture to the left is of Chloe watching me take pictures of the pie on our deck. She almost escaped, but I got her in time ;).

Here is a picture of the pie...yummmmm... if only my photography skills had enhanced its savory deliciousness. I'm hoping to advance in my food photography throughout this blog!
