Welcome to Leaf & Steel! I’m so happy you’re here.
This fall, I’ve been putting way more effort into this whole blogging thing.
I’ve published 21 posts so far in October – a mind-blowing record for me.
With that, I’ve had an influx of new followers and readers.
I wanted to share 5 things about me to let my readers know a little bit more about the face behind this blog!
I’m a Stay-at-Home-Mom
I have a sweet little baby and I love staying home with her! My favorite part about being a stay-at-home-parent is being able to walk through the day slowly. There’s no rushing to get her dressed or fed or out of the house. I’m especially grateful for being able to stay home on the days where we do have to be somewhere at a certain time. I love being the one to meet my daughter’s needs throughout the day.
I firmly believe that bagels are God’s gift to mankind
…and the best bagels are on Long Island! I’ll fight anyone who disagrees. A toasted sesame with cream cheese is absolute heaven.
I didn’t go to college
Someone recently told me that if we are upfront and honest about the things we are ashamed of the power gets taken away from that thing. I don’t fully understand why I feel ashamed for not going to college. It been years since anyone has asked me if I’ve gone to college. Maybe it’s because I went to a very competitive high school or because The funny thing about shame is that I would never judge anyone else for their education, or lack thereof. I would just tell them, “so what?” and move on.
I like to be alone
…okay, I love to be alone. I enjoy the company of my friends and family immensely, and I love to be alone. Shopping, manicures, walking, cooking – whatever it is, I prefer to do it alone. I make sure I get in enough socialization so that I’m able to stay on light side of solicitude and isolation.
My dream is to own a hobby farm in upstate New York
And it must include (but not limited to), one highland cow, two goats, three chickens, and a barn cat.
I’ve fallen in love with the Hudson Valley and Catskills over the years. There’s something about the wide open spaces and small towns that is so refreshing coming from Long Island. I’ve found that the people are nicer, the air is cleaner, and I feel more connected to the universe when I’m up there.
