Hello! I’m Lexi and welcome to my kitchen! I am so excited to be participating in The Ultimate Blog Party ’14. With all the fun of Instagram, I feel like I don’t do as much “blog hopping” as I used to. And I miss it. I am looking forward to getting to know more bloggers and networking with you all.
I am married to the man of my dreams who treats me like a queen. We have silly kind of humor and love laughing together. I met him in college and after he traveled the word he came back to Montana and we married after a whirlwind romance. We have 2 little girls who love to dance and play princess. We just welcomed a little bundle of blue in December and I am totally smitten. I think having a boy will really prove to be a fun adventure.
I started Joyful Momma’s Kitchen in August of 2011 as a way to keep recipes all in one place for my family. We were always calling each other trying to track down our favorite family recipes and dishes that we had made at family gatherings. In November of that same year, my recipe for White Chicken Enchiladas went viral on Pinterest. This was “way back when” Pinterest had a a waiting list to join and I wasn’t even a member. My traffic went crazy and I learned that you can actually make money from having a blog! Awesome! Click on the Pictures below to check out some of my most popular posts.
Since then, I have been learning so much about the actual science and art of cooking. My high school algebra and chemistry have really proven to come in handy. Who knew?!
My big project for 2013 was to redesign my site and switch to WordPress. With the help of Jeni The Blog Maven, I have a beautiful new site and she encouraged me to learn more about food photography and really stretch myself. I did and I am so proud of my new skills. It has been a very rewarding hobby and being able to put out beautiful picture is satisfying.
I have a LARGE family and I love it. I have a kitchen table the seats 14 and we regularly have it filled. I am living my dream.
Leave me a comment and introduce yourself. Thanks for stopping by! Come find me over on Instagram @joyfulmomma. I am over there daily sharing lots of cute pics of my kids and silly shenanigans with my husband.
