Hello, world!

Welcome to Cup of Consuella!

This name… Consuella. It’s actually my middle name, although I’ve had several people ask me if I made up this nickname for myself. Ironically enough, I used to hate my middle name. So much so, I would make up a different name anytime someone asked. Well, during my first week of college, I was participating in an ice breaker and my fun fact was how much I dislike my middle name. Once I told everyone my full name, they all responded with so much love! I shockingly thought, “…really?! Consuella?!” I certainly didn’t expect that reaction, and it wasn’t until then that I began to enjoy the uniqueness of my full name, Consuella and all. Thanks, Dad. Consuella wasn’t so bad after all!

My cup is overflowing, and life has certainly been “half full” since the birth of our daughter, Sanai – our sweet, bubbly, beautiful 10 month old!  Motherhood has completely changed my life, and I look forward to sharing my experiences, photos of my baby girl, and everything in between relating to my journey on this exciting, fulfilling path of parenthood. The days of sleeping in and making last minute brunch plans are now a thing of the past and have since been swapped out for play dates, swooning over baby clothes, sleep training, making new baby foods, and so much more!

As if motherhood didn’t completely change my life, I recently added “homeowner” to my plate, too! My boyfriend, Richard, and I, moved into our first home together, and I quickly found myself head over heels for interior design – a new hobby I could spend hours on! Cup of Consuella will share glimpses into our home, plus inspirational photos, you are sure to love.

Cup of Consuella encompasses so many of my passions and budding interests, including food! Ever since I entered the Dedman School of Hospitality at Florida State University, I’ve had a deeply-rooted passion for food. There are very few things I enjoy more than treating my taste buds to a delicious meal and a relaxing glass of wine… or whiskey (if it was that kind of day.) When I’m not in the kitchen trying new recipes, or cooking up old favorites, you can catch me in a new restaurant trying to convince myself not to order everything off the menu. Whether you would like to see some yummy recipes or virtually join my restaurant tours, Cup of Consuella will have you covered.

Like many other women in this great, big world, I wear several hats – mother, homemaker, professional, foodie, new homeowner, daughter, sister, and friend. Rather than limit myself to exploring one role, or feel intimidated by the responsibilities each hat inevitably brings, I have bravely decided to embrace each, and I hope to inspire other women to do the same. Cup of Consuella will be a safe haven for a broad exchange of thoughts and ideas – something our world lovingly needs more of.

Life is better when you see the cup as half full! I hope you enjoy your Cup of Consuella!

Xoxo,

Consuella ♥
