I hate talking about myself, so this is totally awkward…
My name is Erica, and I am a child of God, wife, mama, traveler, foodie, and wanna-be crafter. My hubby Joe and I have been married for 6 years and we have a 3 year old son named Zeke. We’ve lived in 3 different states and have moved 7 times, but we currently reside on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
I started this blog in 2010 to share my very intense pregnancy story with friends and family. When I wrote my first post, I realized how much I loved writing and knew I wanted to continue. So, this blog has since progressed into my writings about cooking and recipes, travel, life with food allergies, and green living.
I love trying out new foods, but have a tough time doing so because of my extensive list of food allergies (80ish foods). I’m constantly searching Pinterest for new and exciting recipes that I can reinvent for my family. I’m all about making recipes from fresh, organic ingredients. I also love traveling (Florida is a fav spot), meal planning, hanging with my hubby and son, collecting kitchen gadgets, and keeping up with sports (H-O-K-I-E-S Hokies & G-Men, Go Big Blue!).
I think in hashtags, which I guess is a side effect of frequent social media usage #bloggerproblems. I like to use ridiculous phrases like YOLO, legit, redic, whatevs, totes, and selfie because they make me laugh. But most of all I like to make others laugh. My son thinks I’m the funniest person in the world. It doesn’t get much better than that. #mysonthinksirock
