Life is Beautiful

The past couple weeks (and actually months!) have been amazing…I started a blog about 4 months ago and I am still kickin’ πŸ˜€

People at work and home have been happy to get treats more often πŸ˜‰

Choc White Choc Chunk Cookies

Grapefruit Scones

Meals have taken longer to make due to taking photos! (thank you to all my patient eaters)

Red Lentil Sauce Pasta

Tasting different beers has been a ton of fun and I am excited for the many more I get to share with all of you.

Great Divide Brewery

Personal celebrations…I graduated from school (only to start a Master’s in the fall!)

Father’s Day was celebrated with family and good food. Then my birthday was spent with more family and friends and margaritas! πŸ˜€

GF Angel Food Cake

Cranberry Champagne


With every post there is a feeling of satisfaction and when other bloggers acknowledge your efforts it feels great! πŸ˜€

I was so ecstatic when I first was rewarded the One Lovely Blog Award by Love Living in Colorado

  4. you looked great as a redhead and i’m sure you look great as a natural blonde too!

    i’m a grazer too. what’s a sectional eater? do you mean like breakfast, lunch and dinner?

    although i don’t drink soda anymore, totally agree with Coke over pepsi. do you like strong coffee and guinness stout too?

    • A sectional eater is someone that eats one thing at a time…like first all the corn then all the chicken and so on.

      Strong coffee most definitely! Weak coffee is yuck! I do not really like guinness…but I love many stouts…my favorite is the Nitro Milk stout by Left Hand Brewing Company,

  5. Thanks for the nomination Lilly Sue! Hope those emergency room visits calmed down for you after your crazy weekend. I do have to disagree on the Coke vs Pepsi thingy, though. I use to work for Pepsi so I think they rock more than Coke πŸ™‚ That’s Ashley facts!

    • ha ha yes emergency visits calmed down…was just kind of two random incidents in one weekend.

      And I just think Coke tastes better! Everyone has a preference…But we have a Pepsi Center right in downtown Denver…holds Avs and Nuggets games..

  6. Love reading your blogs. They put such a big smile on my face. Keep doing what you do best!!!
