go ugly early

A wise long-time family friend and mentor once said, “go ugly early.” His name is Tom and he’s a brilliant businessman. Tom has been the ever dependable, motivating shoulder angel whispering you to embrace a hot idea and then stay close to a heat source, as hot ideas tend to cool off if you don’t give them any attention.

Food and fitness have always been a hobby of mine – a secret obsession even. I experiment tirelessly with different recipes, fitness avenues, and ways to reach out to my community. It wasn’t until recently that it dawned on me, a blog! A blog would be a perfect way to share my adventures and obsessive research! After an always-too-rare conversation with Tom, he instructed me to stay close to a heat source and don’t be afraid of going ugly early. Whelp, here we go. It’s early, it’s a little ugly, but I’m going for it!

I’ve been working on building my own library of recipes and photographs so that I have plenty of material. Tomorrow, I will post my first recipe. For now, I will leave you with a few photos to give you a taste of what is to come.

I hope you find my musings entertaining and helpful. I’m VERY open to comments and feedback – so don’t be shy. I am writing this for you. I want to help you. If there’s something you’d like me to research, experiment with, and post about, please let me know – I’m thrilled to do it.

Thank you for reading.

Here’s to many more! 🙂

    Cassy…I’m really interested in hearing more about different chicken finger reviews around the San Antonio area. Is there any way you could add this feature to your blog?
