  1. I love that you are a black belt! I did Tae Kwon Do for a few years (red belt) and loved it then moved and didn’t pick up again. That Yellow Table site looks amazing! I love that you want to encourage women to read. I love blogs because they expand my mind and creativity, making more things seem possible. Lovely post getting to know you, you Lord of the Rings fan!

    • I wish I kept up with it! But I would definetly do it with my kids if they were ever interested. I love the Yellow Table and have made several of her recipes with great sucess!
