I was first attracted to Christina's vivacious and hilarious self on Instagram but was completely drawn in by her witty writing style and stories. Her focus on family and faith is evident throughout her work and can we say FOODIE?? Her recipes are to die for. I recently tried her Family Favorite Guacamole and Holy Toledo. It's amazing.
|Go make this. Seriously. Oh my word.|
But enough from me. Let's hear from Christina. I'll just be over here stuffing my face...
Let's start with family life. How old are your kids?
I've always been a writer at heart. Whether it was starting (and not finishing) truly horrible novels, writing training manuals, or crafting sales pitches I just needed to do it. Putting words to paper (or blog) was and is so important to me. I started this blog because I wanted a place to pour out my heart. That's what blogging has been for me. It's where I talk the highs, lows, and hilarity of motherhood. It's where I talk about food (and how I'm always hungry). It's where I share my faith. I am always amazed that anyone reads what I write and so very grateful for those interactions.
Jeans, loose fitting shirt (usually white), sandals with a lot of bling, sunglasses, and red lipstick. I wear some version of this almost every day. It's comfortable but feels like maybe I look like I tried at least a little. That's how I justify it to myself anyway.
Do you enjoy gardening, sewing, decorating, painting or photography? I know I loved seeing your daughter's dresser DIY recently on Instagram!
I love gardening and DIY. Refinishing furniture, creating party themes, or even painting walls. I enjoy any project where I can see big results quickly because I'm not very patient.
Thanks for giving us a peek at the babe behind the blog, Christina!
And last but not least, here a few of Christina's recent fabulous posts to get you started:
