ann's intro

Ok, really, just pinch me. A year ago if someone said I would be collaborating on a project with Amy… well just pinch me. I am so excited to have this project in my life. I have recently closed the door on a 6 year “baked good catering” venture with another great cook and wonderful friend. We had so much fun and success but we were ready for a change. About a year ago I picked my camera back up, started taking drawing classes and began to tap into my creative side. But I needed something more. Some direction, some inspiration, a challenge …. enter Amy and our collaboration and here we are. As many of you know Amy’s photos and life are inspiring. Her energy and enthusiasm are magnetizing. It’s easy being drawn to Amy. I first saw Amy with her family before we even met at a local pool. They were totally hip and cool. Even at first sight – her ease with life, dedication to her family and creativity were evident. Then we met for real at our children’s school and here we are now. I know she has given me a wonderful gift by asking me to join in this project – thank you Amy. I have loved cooking my entire life. I truly enjoy food, trying new things and reinventing old. The most important part about food to me is the sharing that comes with it. Now as a wife and mother of three I am challenged everyday by how to carve time out for us. Having dinner at the dinner table is important to me and so good for our family. It is a time just for us. So hear I am ready to discover food through photos and friendship. I can’t wait.

By the way… Happy Birthday Amy. Funny we are both Libras. This year will be great!

such a great introduction!
I'm such a foodie too and enjoy seeing such creative women who are busy in their everyday lives with their families...but still manage to exude style and brilliance in how they see things...especially through their lenses!

You would love Sunday Suppers - they are on my blog roll.
My childhood was all about family, and food and my Dad began the Business in 1945, providing produce for many families - still going strong. Living healthy has always been important and sharing food at mealtime is a way for us to connect on many levels.
wishing you a wonderful discovery!
