A Little Bit of Everything

Last weekend while sorting the file folders of clippings and recipes I have saved over the past 10+ years, I contemplated what I would do with all of them. Write some sort of book? Scan them and put them in the computer? Continue to keep them in file folders and accordion files?

I have become an internet junkie. Almost every night I am glued to my laptop, researching our next vacation, searching for recipes, seeking out gardening hints or finding the wine to serve with our next dinner. I am always googling on my iPhone to find whatever it is we need to know when out and about. So it occurred to me...I should share this information and create a blog.

I've spent the past couple of nights reading blogs. There's some absolutely incredible blogs, beautiful photography and noteworthy content. What should I blog about?? I have a passion for cooking. If I could live life over, I would become a chef. However, I don't want to focus only on cooking and my clippings (and thoughts) aren't just about food. With that...A Little Bit of Everything was born.

For those of you who've never been to Nebraska (and I am sure there are lots of you), as you enter the state, the Nebraska sign is all about The Good Life. I was very lucky, a little over three years ago to meet the love of my life. My only regret is we didn't meet years ago. This love brought me to Nebraska and my own version of The Good Life.

I am looking forward to this journey of thoughts, ideas, recipes, clippings and photos (hopefully my husband will help with these). Hopefully you will join me, maybe we will learn a thing or two or at least have fun in the process.

Life can only be understood backwards, but it has to be lived forwards.
