Welcome to My Loves!

I am an foodie, drinker of wine, runner and best of all Mommy! This blog is an account of all the wonderful things in my life.

My passion for food began at a very young age...I loved being in the kitchen with my mom and grandmothers as they cooked.  I took cooking classes when I was in elementary school, went to cooking camp in Junior High and even did my own cookbook of family recipes when I was a pre-teen.  I am by no means a sophisticated cook but I LOVE cooking and especially EATING!!!

Wine is a newer passion of mine and one that I enjoy experimenting with...again I mention I do not have a sophisticated palette but love trying out new wines.  My newest favorite wine is Moscato - I think I'm in love :)  My favorite time of day is when everyone is in bed and I get to have a glass of wine and relax!

Running...to keep off all the pounds from food and wine:)  I haven't always enjoyed this sport but just recently fell into it.  Now I really love getting out and clearing my mind with a good run.  I completed my first 5K in November of 2011 and really want to try out a half marathon by the end of the year.  My hubby Mike and I run together 3-4 times a week so it's time we get to spend together too!

Being a Mom!  This if my absolute FAVORITE thing in the entire world (besides being a wife).  Mike and I got married in April of 2006 and started our family in December 2009 with the birth of Addison!  We are so in love with our little girl and she is the light of both of our lives.  She is spunky, funny, sweet and very loving!
