Meet the Sullivans

I'm a wife, former teacher now a stay-at-home mom to our sweet son Owen. Keith and I were married in 2010. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is a DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy) and I taught Catholic school Kindergarten until we decided I would stay home with Owen. In my spare time I enjoy cooking meals for my family and the people I love, reading and excersising.

I blog about my adventures in the kitchen, fun times with our family and friends, running our home, being a wife to Keith and a mom to Owen, other random thoughts and our life. Follow us on our journey together!

Camp Sully Year II

Last week we woke up bright and early on Monday morning and headed up to Cloverdale to do a little camping with family! I'm sure all real campers would laugh because where we stayed there is a cabin, with a bed and a fan and electricity. There was also a bathroom and running water and a little convenience store where you could buy ice and cold drinks etc., but to me that's still roughing it, because I have to walk more than a few steps to use the bathroom or wash my hands.Anyway, my little family loves this trip ....more
