Hi. I’m Natalie and I believe that everything starts with an idea. Which is good because… I have tons of them. I am always on the lookout for things I love. Blackbird Ideas is about three things: food, family, and fun.
Blackbird Ideas has been a huge motivator to cook, take adventures, and be more creative. Who couldn’t use some more creativity in their life?
I started this blog one day when I was writing papers for my Master’s degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy and I thought that blogging would be more fun. It was. I have since completed Graduate School and continue to teach full time, blogging on the side for fun. I also enjoy creating items for Teachers Pay Teachers. You can check out my store here.
With my husband, John, our son Jack, and our dogs, Stellar and Chum, we put thousands of miles on our car, taste as many recipes as we can, and spend time with family.
Having fun in (and out of) the kitchen,
(and Chum and Stellar and John and Jack)
