My blog was originally created in 2014 when my husband, dog, son and I relocated to Dallas. I wanted a way to share our experiences with our family and friends that we left behind....and then it snowballed into what it is today!
I love blogging about things that hit home with people. My very first comment was from a women who made my beef stew for her family, she wrote to tell me how much everyone enjoyed it and how much it was like her grandmother's recipe. As an amateur cook who learns as she goes, that was such an amazing moment for me as a blogger.
Parenting issues (and a weekly Momspirational Monday Post), DIY Projects, Family Friendly Recipes
Drinking coffee. Rock climbing. Drinking Coffee. Eating cupcakes. Date Nights and chasing my toddler and dog outside while drinking coffee.
My favorite place will always be Wolfeboro, NH. I vacationed there every summer as a child and the memories are endless. If you go, you must get a glazed donut from The Yum Yum Shoppe. Simply, the best.
Right now this is my hobby but I have been exploring avenues on how to make a profit and I am excited to see where that takes DSBG.
I'd love to triple the readers that I have while still being able to connect with those who reach out. Ideally, if this blog could become a supplemental income for me that would be fantastic.
Finding the time!!! I have a house full of boys (husband, son and dog- I'm outnumbered) demanding my time and energy! I really struggled with this in the beginning and often would go weeks without posting anything. Now, I try and block out time in my schedule that is just for blogging and I keep a planner out at all times.
Use a planner! It doesn't need to be anything expensive, just simply somewhere where you can schedule your time to blog and jot down a few ideas. Oh and invest in a few hundred post it notes. It'll help you plan out when you want to do a blog post, or to jot down ideas.
OMG- this is such a hard question. Ok...Downton Abbey, Scandal and Pretty Little Liars. Yes, I'm 30 and can't stop watching PLL...
In the past 10 years, since moving home from college, I have moved 10 times. Is that unique? Probably not. I also can't snap my fingers.
Ree Drummond. She is my blog spirit animal. Seriously, she started as just a blogger and look at her now! I simply love The Pioneer Women.
Fall. I'm a New Yorker stuck in Texas and although we don't really get fall weather until December, I still love this season. The minute fall hits, I bust out my fall decor and grab a pumpkin scented candle to fill up my house. However, my absolute favorite thing about the fall is making my grandmother's Apple Cake recipe. It's such a light and airy cake and super simple to make but the minute I pull out that recipe, I am reminded of my grandmother and it's such a comforting feeling.
