The Elements of Me


Welcome to The Simple Elements!  If you’re joining me from my old blog, The 20 Something’s Guide to Eating and Entertaining, welcome! You may find, however, that things have changed a bit around here. Since changing my blog to The Simple Elements, I’ve gotten engaged, married, bought a house, had a baby, turned 30 (hence the no longer being able to be the 20 something…) bought a second house and had a second baby! All of these life events are reflected in the posts you will read today. Here you will find recipes that are easy and delicious, things I love and things I don’t, baby food recipes and little tidbits about my new life as a stay at home mama to my darling Marielle and sweet son Alexander!

A little about me.

I love wine, cheese and Nutella. I believe white wine pairs fabulously with mac and cheese. I hate working out but love running around with my littles. Fun fact: I decided to give the whole real running thing a try, and as I passed by our house my husband told me I looked absolutely miserable…which solidified my initial belief that I hate running and working out in general. I do however, love a good yoga class and impromptu dance session in the kitchen with my two year old. I hate my hair. I believe food should be enjoyed, especially with good friends or my handsome hubby. I believe motherhood is one of the toughest jobs out there, whether stay at home or working full time. I believe everything is solved by Oreo Cookie ice cream from Sebastian Joes. I believe mornings don’t begin until AFTER the coffee is consumed. I’m never without a giant cup of coffee in my hand. I believe life is better with carbs. Maybe because I’m Italian? But most of all, I believe life should be lived the way you want to live it, as long as you’re happy!

Thanks for taking the time to visit! I hope you enjoy.
