Welcome to Our Guest Co-Hosts, Leanne & Becca!

Meet Leanne from Urban Girl Bakes!

Urban Girl Bakes

I’m Leanne, from Sweet Home Alabama!  I’m a computer geek turned accountant and am also a wife to my wonderful Hubby and mom to my daughter…Lauren, dog…Ellie and cat…Sophie.  I love to blog about recipes, share my blogging tips and I love to design blog templates!  I believe delicious, nutritious food can bring families together at the dinner table, help us live healthy lives and can even spark a conversation!  Just the thought of a moist, sweet cupcake or a fresh baked loaf of bread can put a smile on anyone’s face!


Meet Becca from Tulips & Orchids!


Hi, I’m Becca and I blog at Tulips & Orchids!  I enjoy crafting, recipes, and all things children.  I work as a nanny for 3 kids under the age of 2, and I have my Master’s in Social Work.  I had Gastric Sleeve surgery in September of 2014 and have since lost over 100lbs.  I aim to live a healthy lifestyle and I try to keep myself busy!  I love to share my life, knowledge, and experiences at Tulips & Orchids – I hope you enjoy!
