Emma061Welcome to my new adventures in motherhood! I am mom to beautiful Emma Grace who was born after 27 glorious hours of labor on June 16, 2014 and wife to my Prince Charming husband Matthew. I split my time between employee (part time), wife (full time) and mother (all the time!). As you can see, it’s all split very equally…wink, wink.

I started this blog to share the next chapter in my life of balancing work, marriage and being a mom! I have a passion for writing and hope to one day publish a NY Times Bestselling book (yep, overachiever.)

A few years ago I discovered I had a wheat allergy. Prior to, I had already lived with another autoimmune disorder that really took a toll on me physically, mentally and emotionally. This food allergy led me to uncover other food sensitivities that I have learned to manage over the years (check out: Gluten Free for Me) which has only continued to spur my passion for cooking…and eating! I am happy to say I have never felt more healthier!

I believe in God, happily ever after (fairytale and all), that everything happens for a reason, never judging a book (or person) by it’s cover, that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, our struggles make us stronger, good triumphs evil, laughter really is the best medicine, never settling and always believing in yourself and your dreams.

I love my life and feel very blessed for the gifts God has given me! Feel free to contact me here or at: reneedijo@me.com. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I do writing it!
