A long while back I started a blog that was all about cooking. I had finished culinary arts school and cooking was a huge part of my life. I am a very creative person and it took a long time to find creative outlets that fit my life well. I love cooking so much because there are endless creative possibilities and it is so functional, after all, everyone has to eat. Due to this cooking and eating I found myself heavier than I would have liked, so my blog became all about my journey to a healthier lifestyle and following my moral compass. Since I was a child, I have always loved animals and never liked eating meat. I was never allowed to be a vegetarian, but always wanted to be. I decided that it was time to be true to myself and finally make the leap. I became Vegan, and my blog followed as a vegan cooking blog. Life was great. I had lost all the weight I wanted to, was training for a marathon, and discovered one of the greatest forms of exercise around. . . Swimming! With all this healthy eating and great physical conditioning my husband and I just couldn’t help ourselves and I became pregnant. Shortly after finding out that I was pregnant, I made the decision to become an ovo-lacto vegetarian so I could be sure that the baby was getting everything he needed. My blog once again transformed into a vegetarian cooking/pregnancy blog. My nesting instinct was very strong, and I started knitting and crocheting for many hours a day working to get everything ready for the baby. I always knew how to knit, but knitting for a baby has made it something that I love so much. Once again the blog morphed a little more into a vegetarian cooking/pregnancy/knitting/sewing blog. The baby was born and parenting posts were thrown into the mix. I love my old blog, but I really feel that with all the changes it is time to break free and start fresh with this new blog. So here it is, my new cooking/knitting/crochet/sewing/parenting/whatever else I want to say blog.
