Hi! My name is Brittany and I have a love for God, family and food! I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and was one of the pickiest eaters you would ever know. When I moved to Charleston, South Carolina for college my tastes changed right along with everything else in my life. I will now eat (or at least try) just about anything. Now I have made Charleston my home and hope to use this blog to share my experiences in and out of the kitchen.
Counting My Cupcakes started in July 2011. The blog documents my trials baking and cooking in my own kitchen, eating the delicious (and sometimes not so delicious) foods from restaurants around home and on trips away from home, and everything in between.
With a lot of eating comes a lot of exercise. I was a swimmer my entire life, through my sophomore year in college. After I retired from the sport, I picked up running. I feel my best after a nice jog or workout no matter what time of day. My sweet tooth is my motivating factor to keep me working out. I know that’s the price I have to pay in order to enjoy the food I want! But I also know the importance of balance.
I am blessed to live in a city like Charleston known for the great restaurants and farmers markets. While I bake often to satisfy my sweet tooth, cooking healthy meals or throwing together a light lunch is just as nice. But eating out isn’t so bad either!
I would love to hear from all of my readers or speak with you about sponsorship opportunities. Please comment on posts or email me at brittanyATcountingmycupcakesDOTcom.
