My name is Alison and this is my blog of passions: food, writing, organic living, raising my sweet girls to leave tiny footprints on the pretty earth, entertaining and more. I am 29 years old, in love with beautiful people and beautiful things. I am moved by the depth of color in a blackberry, stopped by the scent of basil. I would walk 100 miles for a great cup of coffee. I would stop time to hold hands a little longer with my beautiful daughters Aria and Poet. I love my husband so much it makes me blush. I am at rest with my artist soul, which loves too widely to be defined. So this blog, hopefully, will allow me to celebrate my wide and varied loves. It is, and will always be, an expression of gratitude for the many blessings in my life.
