Welcome to My Blissful Mess! I’m Christine, and I am the mom behind the mess. I started this blog in April 2017 to share my greatest passions for cooking, baking, party planning, family life and adventures with the occasional glass of wine or cocktail. I absolutely love to try new recipes and then turn my sweet family into guinea pigs. See, this way, you won’t have to. I’ve taken care of that for you! All of the recipes you find here are either my own creations, or ones I’ve come across and just had to try out! Either way, they are all tried and true. I’m a huge believer in family gathering around the table to share conversation and delicious food. So keeping it simple, and stress free is what this blog is about.
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Washington, and spent more than half of my life there. Although nothing can quite compare to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest (at least in my mind), I am absolutely in love with my piece of dirt here in the southern half of Indiana. It holds it’s own beauty, particularly in the countryside where I live. It’s peaceful, and a great spot to hold get togethers and have good old fashioned country fun! I share my homestead with my wonderful goofball husband (who by the way never fails to crack me up), great kids, and a few pets. I have 4 children, 2 girls and 2 boys, and I have 2 sweet cuddly kitty cats as well as 1 what we believe, is half dachsund and half something else we have no clue what. He was a rescue.
The most important thing in life to me is spending time with family and friends. Life is just simply too short. I truly hope you enjoy your visit here at My Blissful Mess, and I hope I can help simplify things for you, so you have more free time to spend with those you cherish.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you stick around and enjoy the ride!
