So, here goes the story of why I blog! When I first got a laptop computer, I was trying to figure out unique ways to use it, and blogging was unique to me at the time. I hadn’t read many blogs before. So it was a whole new kind of thing to me. I knew from the start that I wanted to blog about cooking and sewing, because those are the two things I mainly do aside from school and sports. And, for any of you still wondering what a “gastronome” (one of my 7th grade vocabulary words =) is, it’s a connoisseur of good food. I used it as part of my blog title to confuse baffle all of you with my impeccable vocabulary ;)

7 things about me:

1. I listen to Audrey Assad non-stop

2. I LOVE geometry (which is why I made my first quilt)

3. I can play Canon in D on the piano

4. The first recipe my sister and I made up was called Louis’s Beefy Garlic Bake (a pizza named after our dog).

5. I have another blog called Hard-backed, but I haven’t updated it for months. So if you look at it, don’t expect much!

6. If you looked at my other blog, you can tell that I’ve read The Count of Monte Cristo. Well, I’m reading it again now. It has over a thousand pages.

7. Possibly my favorite Bible verse is Hebrews 10:23, which says “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for He who promised is faithful.”
