I am 22 years old and live in Virginia, very close to Charlottesville. I just recently moved into my own apartment and have gotten more into cooking since being out on my own. My boyfriend and I are actually working on building a house, that will hopefully be done by the end of this summer/beginning of fall. I am very excited about this! We are lucky because his dad owns a building company, so we are fortunate to be getting this house done by him. I work full time, at a community services board, in the Human Resources depeartment, so I like to find recipes that I can make in less than a half hour, since there is not much time once I get home. I have a 3 year old little boy, Aidan, who definitely keeps me busy. He is so independent and definitely knows what he wants/does not want! It is great watching him change each day a little more. He can be a picky eater, so I try to find things to make where I can take parts out of it that he will eat as well. I love warm weather - spring and summer ! I love the flowers that come out and driving with the windows down. I love the beach and just the feeling of the sun on your skin. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
