My name is Zoë.
[Miss.Zoë if ya nasty] Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
I’m a twenty- something and was raised in a small town in North East MA. I just moved to North Carolina and I’m finding my way in this new city. I was very lucky as a child to be brought up doing arts and crafts, exploring the woods behind my house and eating frozen peas rather than sat in front of a television
I live for being outside, entertaining, cooking, eating, creating, re-purposing and baking.
I thrive in intense situations and love trying new things. I started this in blog in 2012 because I wanted to meet other people like myself and also to share what I’ve learned through the very long process of trial and error. I love DIY projects, Sir Sticky [my faithful hot glue gun] and I share a wonderful bond and love creating together!
My entire life I had been a bartender/server at restaurant giving me plenty of time to do with what I please [a.k.a throw flour around the kitchen]. I’ve worked in Non-profit as a Volunteer and Event Coordinator at a local Animal Shelter. Years ago I stumbled upon decorating cakes as a side job. There was a lot of trial and error learning that art [picture a crying girl sitting on a kitchen floor covered in a Mickey Mouse cake from head to toe an hour before delivery], but I seem to have a good handle on it now. From decorating cakes I figured I should probably stop using box mixes and learn how to bake, and here I am, making my own recipes! Through the many hats I’ve worn I always find my way back to writing. That led me here… A little lost in life, but happy to be finding my way.
I like to sweat and stretch, which is a fancy way of saying I like yoga pants. I play in a dodgeball league. I love to get outdoors, hiking with my number one dude [a four-legged child I call Pico] is my main addiction, but I’m so excited to try what the Blue Ridge has to offer including, rafting, climbing and all the other fun stuff I haven’t had a chance to get addicted to yet. I love to cook and bake and love sharing my recipes so you’ll get to critique me with the best, I mean, come on, I’m obviously not doing something right if there isn’t the occasional troll lurking in the comments section. Occasionally you’ll get some extra tid bits about life, lucky you. This blog is constantly evolving, just like me, so I’m trying not to put too many restrictions on it, I want to allow it to become the best it can be. I’m just here, trying to create a happy, healthy home.
I’m pretty crazy [and I love tangents, LOVE tangents] so try to keep up will you?
I appreciate all the loving I get from my readers and I work very hard on all these posts and photos to share with you so please feel free to share, instagram, tweet, facebook, pin, email, tumble, whatever’s your jam, just remember intellectual property is a real thing and give credit where credit it due.
Golden rule kids.
