Hi there! My name is Alicia, by day I run a MultiMedia library that supports the needs of 25 school districts in upstate NY. When I am not working, I love spending my time reading about food, studying recipes and other food blogs, as well as spending time outside with my boyfriend Chris and our dogs Buddy and Cooper. I really love the blogging community and truly believe that blogging has made me the person that I am today. I have met some of my best friends through the connections that I have made.
In August 2012, I went to my second Healthy Living Summit and spoke on a Newbie Blogger Panel.
In the past couple of years I have become very interested in running and ran my first 5k in November 2010 (on Thanksgiving!). Join me as I work towards my fitness goals! You can see my running progress here.
