Crazy time to start all this – but if not now, then when? Sometimes you just have to go for it…..
So this craziness I speak of. Life has always been busy and will always be busy – family, home, work. I love every hectic moment of it! Add a new baby ( Genevieve my love – she’s 7 months old now ) and a new home with a never ending to-do list of projects – and we’re officially booked in Lancaster County for the next 18 years.
So let me introduce myself…..I’m Amanda. I’m a thirty-something wife and mama. Not a day goes by that I don’t celebrate my family and thank god for the life we share together – they make me the luckiest lady!!! Enzio is my loving, handsome, silly and super smart husband. He’s everything I could have ever hoped for in a husband and more. Then there’s our two brilliant, beautiful, amazing and super sweet daughters – Athena, age 8, and Baby Genevieve – these girls are my reason for everything!
My family and I reside in Amish County – beautiful Lancaster County, PA. I ABSOLUTELY love it here!!!! Life is sweeter, simpler and slower here. I couldn’t dream of a better place to raise a family.
So back to starting it off. I’m pretty sure I’m like most other people who decide to start a cooking blog – I love food, I love cooking and I love sharing my creations. I’ll admit- I have thousands (okay – more like hundreds) of written and printed recipes scattered about in folders, notebooks and boxes and shoved in random books and I’m desperately in need of some system of organization. I’m also really into thrift store shopping, upcycled and DIY projects and saving a dollar anyway I can. So combine all that with my love of writing and CraftyCookingMama was born!
I know there is not a single soul but my own reading this right now – but hopefully one day soon other eyes will stumble upon my blog and enjoy my ideas and adventures as much as I do. I look foward to sharing my creations with you all…XOXO
