About Me

Background:  I live in Los Angeles, CA.  I'm a wife and a mother; law student; legal secretary.

Some of my hobbies:  Learning to cook a wider range of cuisines and ingredients; learning to take photographs; container gardening; sprint car racing (as a spectator only). 

Why I started this blog:  I have been reading blogs for years but never really took the leap of getting involved with the wonderful community of bloggers/blogging.  I have been inspired by so many, in many areas of blogging.  I'm sure I will link to them in my future posts, and some I have already added to my blogroll.

I have wanted to start my own blog for awhile now, but kept putting it off.  I wanted to wait until I learned more, or became a better cook, or a better writer.  I realized I was never going to get to the point of being comfortable and that I should just jump in.  Now I wish I hadn't waited so long, because I am enjoying every minute of it.
