Don't judge the outfit...It was freezing!

Hi! Welcome to Simply Sweet.  I'm Diane, your hostess with the mostest.  If you haven't guessed by now, I'm a huge fan of pretty much all things sweet (and savory).This blog is a place for me to share recipes, techniques, health related goals and what's going on in my life.  I am on a continuing journey to balance my love for food- good food- and a healthy lifestyle.  Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I eat all of the brownie batter.  While this blog won't focus exclusively on diet, fitness, and weight loss/maintenance, health and wellness will definitely be an ongoing theme.  I'm passionate about cooking and perfecting a variety of recipes and techniques, so I guarantee there will be indulgences.  And that's ok.  My ultimate goal (for me and for you!) is to be happy with the choices I make and the life I lead.  Come along for the ride!!!

Some Things You Might Want to Know About Me

I was once almost eaten by a dinosaur wearing a hard hat.

I'm 27 years old.

I am a lawyer, albeit an unemployed one.  I've been looking for a job in/around Philadelphia while living primarily in Ohio, which has been challenging. I'm hoping this will change soon. 

I am engaged to a wonderful man, Justin, who once fought a bear.
He won.

We are getting married on October 8.  I can't wait!!!

I have a wonderful family whom I love very much.

Dad, Mom, Learose, Me

I'm majorly obsessed with Christmas...You can expect Christmas music and recipe ideas to start in about September. (Or I can just keep them to myself until a more acceptable time).

At some point in the future I may feel compelled to write something more profound about myself, but this will have to do for now. 

If you have a question for me, just ask!
