"People who love to eat are always the best people." - Julia Child
Hi friends and happy pretend Spring! Nothing like 8 inches of snow to kick of April, am I right? (If you are a fellow Midwesterner, Summer has to come eventually - we can do it!) But any-who, enough about moody Mother Nature, welcome to my brand new BLOG! I told myself for years I would never start a blog. Everyone's already done it, I'm not a writer, and I'm not that interesting. But my life is all sorts of crazy now running a business on top of a full-time career, so I figured what better time than now?!
While I am certain this will continue to evolve, my vision for this blog is to bring some sanity to my life. To create a home for all the different components that make up my every-day and to share it with all of you in hopes to make your life a little easier! I'm not sure what to classify this as yet (TBH I just decided to start it this morning) but some topics I currently have on deck are:
What I'm Eating/My Favorite Food Blogs
Things I wish I Had Known Before Starting a Business
Running a Kickstarter Campaign
My Favorite Restaurants and Fitness Studios in the Twin Cities (and beyond because this girl has some plans to travel!)
Making Time to Invest in Yourself (aka working out, learning new skills, doing the things that make YOU happy)
Minny Spoons Updates
Clearly I've got some work to do on the titles but I'd say that's a good place to start! I get a lot of questions around these topics on instagram and this is a MUCH easier platform to talk about them on. Plus, I've already got the domain thanks to Minny Spoons so why not hop on the blogger train?! I hope you stick around see where this lil' blog takes us!
PS - In case you don't know who I am: My name is Ashley :) I am 25 years old, currently living in Minneapolis with my boyfriend and French bulldog, Remi. I work a corporate 9-5 job, run a small nut butter company called Minny Spoons, and am hugely passionate about living a healthy and fulfilling life that always includes wine and puppies. Some of my favorite things include brunch, sweaty workouts, summer days at the lake, exploring a new city, and baking healthy treats!
And if you made it this far and you're not my mom (thanks for reading though, mom), tell me a few of your favorite things in the comments!
