I'm a newbie!

Hello everyone!

As you can see from Katie's post below, I am now her co-blogger. We're also related (her hubby is my brother) so now we're REALLY stuck with each other. ;) Just kidding...she is really my best friend and I'm looking forward to blogging with her and hope I can bring some new topics and reviews to the table too.

Here is a little bit of info about myself, in case you were curious, nosy, or just bored:

I live in the great state of Colorado and really call this home now, after having moved around a LOT as a child (former military brat;)
I LOVE Colorado!
I am happily married to my husband, Benjamin, of 3+ years.
I love cooking, creating new recipes and trying unusual/exotic ingredients and recipes, but I'm also down for a simple classic.
I enjoy just about anything nature-related and have camped and hiked in many parts of the U.S. and England. I climbed part of Pike's Peak this year and intend to climb the whole thing one day.
Some other interests of mine include: reading, playing the piano and singing, writing, crafts, movies, anything chocolate, yoga, fuzzy socks and long walks on the beach. No really. ;)

Something that some of you may relate to, and may seem a little odd (considering the name of this blog), is that I have struggled with infertility and multiple miscarriages. I am still hoping to have a successful pregnancy but my husband and I are also looking forward to providing foster care and, hopefully, adopting one day. I am 29 and hoped to have a few kids by now, but life has roadblocks, right? Sometimes it's just about taking a more creative route. ;)

Much love to you all!
April
