    I’m a south florida food blogger and I’ve been trying to connect with other local food/blog fanatics. Michelle at cupcakes cocktails and kids suggested I contact you. After looking at your site, I’m wondering why we aren’t best friends!

      Hi Lisa! Michelle has told me about you as well! Seriously how did we not know each other up until now? Anyhow, better late than never, right? Are you in West Palm Beach as well? We should all get together before the end of summer! 🙂
