Welcome to my blog!

21 Jun

Hi!  I’m Margaret.  I’m 24 years old, a newlywed, and a recent college graduate.  After 5 years of engineering school and cramming, all nighters, late night snacks, and dorm food, I am ready for some REAL food.  Since I graduated from college I have been spending lots of time in the kitchen cooking dinners and baking sweets for my love.  I love trying new recipes and sometimes new foods, and I’m lucky to have an awesome new husband who tries whatever I put in front of him and gives me an honest critique.  I’m also lucky to work with a bunch of guys  who love my baking and are always asking for more which gives me lots of opportunities to try new things.  Hopefully through this blog I can share some of my favorite new recipes with you!

My husband, Karl, and I are both interested in living a healthier lifestyle and always making positive choices.  We do not by any means live at the gym, but working out is something we always try to do more of.  One of my biggest goals is to become a runner and someday run a half marathon.  I am hoping that this blog will also help me keep track of my milestones.

On top of all of this, Karl and I are starting our married life in a completely new city on the east coast, 14 hours away from our hometown of St. Louis.  We really want to see as much of the city and the whole east coast while we’re out here so I’m sure that I’ll be sharing that with you as well.  As pretty much everyone knows, balancing work and life can always be a challenge, but I’m excited to find out what the future has in store and to share my new adventures with you!
