Well, I did it. I started a blog. My friend Karen has been on me for about a year now, so here goes.
What do I want this blog to be?
That's a very good question, and I haven't really figured it all out yet. I plan to share recipes, good books, and bits about my life.
Why "Barefoot Kentucky Mama"?
Because I am one. Nathaniel (my husband) has always teased that I have been the Kentucky stereotype: in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. Well, I'm not pregnant now, but I do have three kids, spend a lot of my time in the kitchen, and I'm barefoot whenever possible.
In short, I'm a stay-at-home mom of two boys and one baby girl (ok, she just turned one, but she's still my baby). I have a dog and a big garden. I try to keep things green as much as I can, but I'm still a work in progress. I try to cook from scratch and feed my family healthy things, but again, I'm working on it, and I do believe in having desserts every now and then. (I just made whole wheat sourdough rolls...and chocolate chip cookies.) I live in a small town in Kentucky. I like small towns. I've lived in several in Kentucky, and in Indiana (where I'm from orginially), and one in Texas (which was way too far from home). I love my family, both immediate and extended. My faith is always a work in progress, and although I don't talk about it as much, I pray for guidance every day.
I think that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. I'll have a more focused post next time!
