I really wanted a blog where I could post about lots of different things. The name of this blog comes from my love of reading (as in a bookshlef), but it also is a "shelf" (virtual, if you will) for me to post about different aspects of my life.
I used to have two separate blogs; one for photography and one to share photos and tidbits about my daughter, Charlotte. I would also love to have a place to keep track of some of my favorite recipes and a place to talk about all of the books I have been reading. So this blog will be about lots of stuff!
The problem with having a specialized blog is that I don't always have something to say in one area. Plus, it's super hard trying to keep up with more than one blog! This way I'll at least have something to post about: photography, a great new read, my kiddo, or a yummy new recipe.
I'm excited to get started! Beware: this might get wordy!
My name is Jennifer and I'm a 28 year old mommy and wife. My wonderful, silly, crazy and beautiful daughter Charlotte is almost three (holy moly, where did the time go??). My husband Mario is one of the nicest people ever. We met when we were 16 and worked at a pizza place. We've been together over 11 years and married for almost four! We have 2 kitties and a dog: Daisy, Isabelle and Ben. I'm sure I'll share them with you too. :)
I have always loved reading. I just love picking up a book and getting lost in a new world. When I was in high school and college reading sat on the back burner. Now that I'm at home with my daughter I have more time to read!
I am not a great chef or anything: I'm just trying to find healthy, tasty recipes to feed my family. So I'll probably post my favorites on here to share and keep track of them.
I have always wanted to learn about photography, but never really the opportunity until my daughter was born. She was TERRIBLE at sleeping in her own bed and I ended up having to hold her while she napped. Well, there's not a whole lot you can do while you are holding a sleeping baby. Solution: research photography on the computer while she sleeps. I read, and read, and read. Photography is just a hobby for me right now, and I have lots of room for improvement, but I love it. Oh! and I'm lazy and don't always edit my pics either. Shhh!
