Hi! I’m Kim. Welcome to my piece of the internet pie. I am thrilled that you stopped by for a visit and hope that you find everything you’re looking for while you’re here! (Hint: you won’t. But don’t let that stop you from looking.)
I’m a country girl who left rural Ohio for an education. I recently finished a PhD in Sports Medicine and landed my dream job as a professor and researcher. Because of the new job, my husband and I packed up our lives and our dogs for a new adventure in the country and mountains of Virginia. The Homestead is full of mid-century charm and needs just a bit of love from us to fit our personalities and sensibilities. We’ve got a little bit of land, a pond full of koi, a few Silkie chickens, two sweet dogs, and a brand new life awaiting us.
I drink a lot of wine, love a good cocktail, and can appreciate beer more days than not. I’ve been a baker for as long as I can remember, and have recently applied my kitchen talents to non-desserts. I try to keep my kitchen clean – local foods and produce – and am anxiously awaiting next spring to get started in my newly inherited mega-garden. Currently, it’s just growing 6 foot tall weeds. But a little tough love should whip it into shape in no time.
There’s no real flow to this blog. Sometimes I review wine, sometimes I share recipes, sometimes I tell stories that may or may not be interesting. I’d love for you to stick around and learn a bit more about me. And maybe laugh at my awful jokes once in awhile.
Now, on to the wine! 😉
