Hi! And welcome! So happy you’ve found me!
My name is Christina and this is our little piece of the Internet where we can share pretty much everything. You’ll hear (er, read) about it all – food, recipes, travel, music, books, TV, movies, shopping, babies and the list goes on and on.
I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area (aka the best place on Earth) and visit as often as possible. I lived in Texas for four years while getting my undergraduate degree at Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!) and moved to San Diego in August 2005 to attend grad school at San Diego State University (Go Aztecs!). I married my wonderful husband Travis (a classical musician) in March 2011 and we love making our home here in San Diego. In January 2015, we welcomed our first child, a daughter, named Cecilia Adeline into the world. She has completely changed our lives for the better and we love her more than we could have ever imagined. Seriously – I could just gobble her up every single day.
I love all types of music from The Rolling Stones (I’ve seen them SIX times) to Paul Simon (I met him while I was pregnant and that is partly where Cecilia gets her namesake), Taylor Swift to The Police and The Alabama Shakes to Broadway showtunes. I’m also obsessed with most every Bravo show and want to be BFFs with Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper. Cooking/baking is one of my biggest passions (and was my full-time job pre-baby), so you’ll find lots of great recipes here and on my first site The Pastry Posts.
If you’re on social media (and who isn’t these days?) and want to follow me, you can “like” this site on Facebook and follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest. You can also subscribe to this site on Feedly or sign up to receive posts via email on the homepage.
So, pull up a seat, your beverage of choice (mine is some nice bubbly) and stick around and browse here a while!
