Hey everyone, it’s me Laura here! I’m super excited to be a part of the Alabama Women Bloggers network! I’ll get to introduce everyone to the fabulous food that is a part of Alabama!! We’re starting to be big news, ya know!
I’m a Capricorn, who just turned the big 3-0 this past January 4th. Although my license says January 1st. Don’t y’all worry about that… two birthdays is never a bad thing!
I started this whole blogging journey when I was a freshman at Auburn. It was on a site called easyjournal.com, and thankfully for me and the rest of the world, I deleted the website a long time ago. it was pretty much the ranting (and the swearing!) of a college freshman. That thing was a mess! But it was fun, because me and three other girls would all post up to it. I had another blog on xanga.com, which is still there. I read it for giggles on occasion — it was terrible! I started this site and haven’t looked back. I mainly started blogging, because well, I’m the only family member left in the South! With mom and sister in PA, and Dad out in KC, it’s a super simple way for them to catch up with me.
My husband and I have called Birmingham home since 2006 (we weren’t married yet, but both living here), and live a short ten minutes from downtown. No kids yet, but we’re pretty ok with our fur baby, Stella. She’s a mess. Sort of like her momma.
I was born in Wisconsin and moved around a whole bunch of places (including Denmark!), before my family settled for awhile in Atlanta, which I usually call home. Husband, B, is from Montgomery and Stell-dog is from Aberdeen, MS.
My most favorite place in the world is New Orleans, but I absolutely love to travel! If I could get one of those sweet gigs where someone pays you to travel and eat and write about it, I would pretty much be in heaven.
I love love love the color pink, old black and white films, photography, running, pretty much any and all types of music and marathon watching TV shows. Things I do that I’m not so happy about: kill every living plant, suck at cooking, pretty much fail on all Pinterest crafts, and always spill something on me when I’m wearing white.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be able to share my love of food in this great state, bringing y’all The Taste of Alabama every two weeks! I hope that I can get you guys as excited about the all the food here as I am!! And…if I get to use this as an excuse to try all the new places here, it certainly can’t be a bad thing!!
