Welcome to my first attempt at blogging. My name is Stacy and I am a mid-30’s wife, mother, and teacher living on the Front Range in Colorado in St. Louis. I decided to blog for a number of reasons. I want to allow our family and friends, most of whom live in other states and countries, to keep up with our family life. I also want to share the things and experiences I love. But, mostly, I want to stop talking to myself in the presence of others. Or out of the presence of others for that matter. It’s beginning to get awkward.

If you had told me a year ago or five years ago that I would be living in St. Louis, I would have given you a “are you out of your mind” side glance. But, here we are. Life is an amazing adventure. Much of this blog will be about those adventures and the lovely people who accompany me along the way.

I will also be posting occasional recipes. Some will be my own creations, some will be adaptations or reviews of recipes I’ve found in the gigantic cookbook known as the Internet. I love to cook and do so nearly every day often with a toddler as a sous chef. 

I don’t promise that this blog will be funny or interesting or frequently updated. But if you want to know a little about our lives, then by all means tune in.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and observations about our historic and charming destination. We are so pleased that you were able to meander down Main Street and enjoy the ambiance of our unique and friendly city. We just celebrated our 200th anniversary a couple of years ago and we are like fine wine, just getting better and better with age.

    Please come back and savor the rest of what we have to offer. We are the essence of a family friendly community, far from the urban ills and congestion of the big city, but with an assortment of shops and dining that seem to never end. Don’t miss our Foundry Art Centre where we have a wonderful children’s gallery. You have lots more to see and enjoy on your return visit. If you do return, please be my guest for dinner here in St. Charles at the restuarant of your choice.

  2. Thank you David! We’ll definitely be back. We visit St. Louis often so St. Charles will be on our list once again.
