WHO IS THE CRAZY PERSON BEHIND THIS BLOG?
Hi! My name is Mindy. I’m a new mom, wife, first time homeowner, have a degree in art, and a noisy member of a huge Italian family.
WHY “FINDING SILVER LININGS” ?
I want this blog to reflect my personailty. It is about living passionately, enjoying everything from food to family and creatively finding the blessings in disguise in life’s obstacles (like ruining the laundry –again!). Plus, it kinda rhymes, haha!
WHY DID YOU START THIS BLOG?
I started this blog to keep friends and family up to speed with what’s going on at our new house. We have something new brewing all the time around here. Since everyone has busy lives and busy schedules, it was tough to have everyone over each time we updated our home. I’ve never had a blog before, but it seemed to be an easy way to share what we were up to with everyone and they can see it at their own convenience.
I have never owned my own home until now. When we got married and moved into our house, we had nothing but each other and our dog Rocco. A lot of things are very
foreign new and exciting to me! This new chapter of my life is very much learning experience. I keep it honest here, so I post the recipes that worked as well as the ones that didn’t, the occasional “what not to do” post and even the “thank goodness we have insurance” post.
WHAT IS THIS BLOG ABOUT?
I blog about everything. I have an eclectic array of interests and can’t just commit to one thing to post about. I’m passionate about becoming well-rounded and creative in my life experience. I want to try everything. I documented my pregnancy including weekly bump photos and a mommy-to-be diary. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I’m passionate about food, family, trying new things, and handmade decorating solutions.
This has become my experiment to
vent organize my daily thoughts and ideas, laughs, trials and tribulations that come with trying to live a positive and productive life.
I’m learning as I go in life and always trying to find the silver linings.
