Blueberries Coming Out of My Ears

So this weekend I was lucky enough to be given a HUGE amount of freshly picked blueberries. Friends had gone to Michigan, as they do every year, for the seasonal picking event. They came home with pounds & pounds of the delightful little berries, and thankfully, were kind enough to share.

I LOVE blueberries, and with so many in my hands at one time, I began to dream in blue. Really! That's how deep my love is for them. I kid you not! All the ways to eat them...blueberry pierogi, blueberry muffins & pancakes, blueberries in my Cheerios, blueberries in a fruit salad, and of course, blueberry pie. But I had to choose just one...for today, anyway.

And blueberry pie it was! I've made just one other pie in my life, but let me tell you, this pie was so perfectly put together, had the most enticing aroma, and tasted like heaven! I may be exaggerating a little, but you get the idea. It was delicious! So good, in fact, that I want to share the recipe with all of you! I found it on, where I find many great recipes. This particular recipe calls for a pre-made crust, but
I actually created my own. You can choose whatever is easiest. Bon apetite!

And So It Begins...

My first blog post. My FIRST POST! Wow! I never thought this day would come! But here it is! After sitting with my laptop for (what seems like) months, writing and erasing and writing and erasing and reading and downloading, uploading, canceling, changing (and many times pulling out my hair!) just designing my new blog, I suddenly realized I didn't have anything to write about. What could I possibly have to say? I'm kind of the quiet, shy type (until you get to know me!) and absolutely despise having to talk about myself. So what can I share with you? What can possibly be so interesting in my somewhat dull, secluded, and uneventful suburban Chicago life that I would feel the need to pass it on to complete strangers? And then it hit me...


I may not be the most exciting person on earth, but I'm not all that dull, either! This blog is going to introduce you, bit by bit, to the things that make me me and that make me happy to be me! From my Etsy jewelry shop, Daisy's Petals, to my garden, my dog, Ozzie, my family, including all of my 9 nieces and nephews, my vacations (if I ever take one!), my occasional finds, advice, and plenty of other useful tidbits. So if you're interested in seeing more snapshots of my life, I invite you to come back for more...The album has just been opened!
