Hi.  I'm Annie and I have a kitchen and Chicago is my city.  I'm so glad you've found my blog and declared it your favorite blog in all the land and shared with all your friends and family.  It means a lot to me.

About Me
I'm a lady in my late twenties living in the fabulous city of Chicago.  The Windy City.  The City of Big Shoulders.  The Second City.  The Land of Many Parades (I made that one up).  Born and raised in Chicago, I love love love this city.  It's who I am, it's where my family is from, and it's where I want to be.  I live in a cozy apartment with my husband and my unwieldy mug collection.

I've always enjoyed baking but it's become a bit of an obsession for me in the last few years.   I began following various baking blogs and was inspired by their skills, creativity, and writing.  I've always been interested in makeup and my collection is both embarrassing and beautiful.  By day,  I'm a Project Analyst at a marketing and e-commerce website based in Chicago and by night, I'm mostly the same person except in pajamas and eating peanut butter by the spoonful.

About the Blog
I hope for this blog to serve as a creative outlet for me and a baking and beauty resource for others.  I'm excited to see it grow and develop as I begin to learn more about blogging, SEO, the internet and The Matrix.  Sometimes I'll chat about cupcakes or bread or baking soda and sometimes I might discuss nail polish, The Bachelor, or mascara.  Most importantly, I want it to be a cheerful, fun, and inviting place to visit and share.

So thank you (kindly and from the bottom of my heart) for visiting and let's be friends.
