My name is Amy and I am thrilled that you found my blog. I am a girl who is blessed beyond comprehension. I have an amazingly hunky husband named Ben who makes sure that my life is never dull. We're high school sweethearts who've been married for 20 years and we feel incredibly blessed to be walking through this journey of life together.
I've been blogging less than 3 years which means that I'm relatively new to the blogging world. When I first entered the food blogging world the purpose of my blog was to simply share recipes with my family and friends. It didn't take long before I realized that the blog was evolving into so much more than a means of communication and a chronological collection of recipes. My blog had become a place for me to share the triumphs and struggles of my daily life. (And a few recipes along the way.)
One of my passions is photography and I love to post pictures of my family, my overactive weimaraner and food. Most days I post step by step instructions for my recipes because I just think it's easier for my blog followers to follow a recipe with pictures.
I love being a food blogger. It is one of the coolest jobs in the world. I never imagined that I would be the person walking through the grocery store with a camera in my hand. The girl who takes their camera to a restaurant and photographs everyones meal before they are allowed to eat. A girl who finds herself saying things to her family like "Don't eat that - I have to take a picture first." I never dreamed that I would be that girl or that those words would come out of my mouth, but I LOVE it!
I am so honored that you have chosen to read my blog and follow my story. You inspire and encourage me everyday just by logging into My Story in Recipes. Your devotion to the blog has stretched and challenged me both personally and creatively. I truly believe that this community of blog followers is among the very best. I am blessed by all of you.
