I just want to take a minute and thank Danielle from Blissful and Domestic for inviting me onto her blog for a "Getting to Know you Segment"! I am so glad to be here!!
I started BigBearsWife.com as a place to store my recipes and Craft Files when we were living in North Carolina. My husband was in the Military, stationed at Camp Lejeune, and we had already moved 3 times since we had been married. I didn't want to loose another recipe because of moving, packing, unpacking and misplacing haha. It was much easier to arrange everything on a blog and archive everything.
Not to mention, that when a friend or family member wanted one of my recipes I could just send them the link or just print it out for them. Easy Peasy. :)
I am married to my best friend, Thomas, "BigBear" (Nickname from the Military, hence BigBearsWife, and yes his co-workers and buddies in the military refereed to me as that haha).
