About Me

Hi, I’m Cara…

Originally from the Midwest, my family relocated to Colorado for my husband’s job in 2015.  I have been married since 2002 to my college sweetheart and together we have 4 children.  We are very much an active outdoor family and love to take full advantage of everything Colorado has to offer.  We enjoy hiking, skiing, and mountain biking as well as the amazing views and weather. 

I am a former elementary school teacher and currently a “stay-at-home mom.”  (Although I feel like I spend more time in my car driving kids around!)  My youngest child will begin kindergarten in 2022 and I then transition back into the workforce as a substitute teacher and plan to work on growing my blog.  It is my dream to eventually blog and pursue food photography as a full-time career.  I am manifesting this as we speak!

I have many hobbies but cooking and photography are by far my favorites.  My Mom is the one who inspires my love for cooking.  As a child, I watched her effortlessly create delicious meals and she was always combing through cookbooks looking for new things to try.  She was also a successful caterer for several years.  She taught me how to throw a party that people will remember, simply because of the amazing FOOD.  Thanks, Mom!!
