I am a stay at home mom with a six year old son and a newborn daughter. I am married to a wonderful man, and we are building a great life. When I'm not occupied by family responsibilities with our huge extended family, I focus my free time on writing, reading, and photography. I like to consider myself creative, though I don't take advantage of my creative outlets nearly enough. The one form of creativity that I am able to endulge in regularly is cooking, and I enjoy it to the fullest extent. I love learning new techniques and applying them to our meals.
