Well hello blogger world! 
This is the first post of my first blog I have ever had. This is an exciting day. Having never done this before, please forgive me if I break any 'blog' rules or do something faux pas. I have never been a professional writer, but have always enjoyed it. But the main reason I started this blog was not for the writing, but for sharing the things that do not require any words. Photos. 
People say they are worth 1000 words, right? Well we shall see. I discovered my passion for photography a few years back and also have a love for cooking and baking. And I thought why not combine the two? So here I am. Therefore cooking, baking, photography and there you have my blog. 
Some think of drawing and painting as an art. Or writing a song makes you an artist. This is all true. But I believe looking through a lens, to capture just the perfect moment on camera, so that you can have that developed, hung on a wall, put in a frame or placed in your back pocket for a lifetime, is also art. And I want to share with you the beauty I find and capture in my life.
Because my friends, it is all around us. 
Life is art. Live yours in COLOR.



  1. Bravo! that was so inspiring I re-read it through a camera lens and it was actually more inspiring and now I do not know what to do with all this inspiration! In all seriousness...this is fun and well done and bright like the sun and I am glad to see more of your artistic side! I will be back to this bend in the alley soon!

  2. Great work! Can't wait to see it develop!


  3. What a wonderful blog site! Your pictures are beautiful! I think you should send some samples of your work to a few of the magazines that cater to food etc. You are very talented Allie!


  4. Ah, m' friend! I'm so excited to keep up on your blog. I love photos (visual is where it's at!). And food, of course! Needing inspiration there all the time. So glad you started this for I had no idea you liked to cook, and now I know. :-) I need a "follow by email" option so I can keep up. Oui, oui? Love ya!
