Hello friends of the BIG APPLE MAMI!
I hope that you are having a great week, so far.
My name is Kim and I blog over at Singledou[b]t. Last time I stopped by, I shared a recipe. This time I struggled with what to share with you! Writing blog posts for yourself can be hard enough. Writing them for other people is even more tough. This time, I thought I'd share a little about myself by sharing what makes me smile. I have really been feeling thankful lately for many things in my life. So I thought I'd share the top things.
I live in Washington Heights in Manhattan, New York City. Its predominately a Spanish speaking Latin culture. I belong to a church that meets in that neighborhood. We have been a family of believers for about 4 years but an official church for 5 months. Many of us feel called to live in this neighborhood and to serve them. These people are amazing to work with, serve with and live with. No its not a cult :) We just love Jesus and people!
I have the best parents! They have been so good to my brother and I! I am so thankful for who they are and how well they love us! I know that many people don't have what I have and it grieves me. To have parents who love you without expectation and with all they have is such a humble blessing. I would give you mine if I could!
ART & DIY
I call myself an artist. Not saying I am any good but its defintely a passion of mine. I love writing, photography, creating and recreating/repurposing. It gives me much joy. I also love to sit in front of the TV and knit. If we were friends you'd probably find some knitted item of mine in your possession at some point.
I am blessed to have some amazing people in my life. Words cannot say enough how blessed I am in that department. At the top of that list is my Best Friend, Ashley! She is my roommate, sister, friend, and soulmate! Life with her has been so much more rich. I look forward to the day we have our own families and can share that stage of life with each other but for now I get her all to myself... well sort of. We do have other friends
Love is not a strong enough word for how I feel about coffee. Co-dependent is more like it.
I am fascinated with zoos. Need there to be more in closer proximity. You can read about my latest visits here & here.
SANGRIA. If you go to my blog, you'll notice lately the talk on Sangria. I am a bit obsessed. I do love it! I also love to cook. Here are a few of my recipes.
Thanks Kristina for letting me take up some valuable space on your blog! Thanks to your readers for reading!
Ah! I love this lady!! Isn't she great? So thankful she's a friend in real life and through our blogs! Please stop by and say hi to her!
