Hello! My name is Kristen, and I write Kristen, Sweetly. I am 26, vegetarian, and live in New Jersey. I started blogging in August 2010. I try to find something sweet to dwell on every day, which usually includes a lot of food. I am a dreamer, a liberal, a lover, and a Gemini. I’m working on being less of a perfectionist… thinking less and doing more. I like good food, beautiful words, wine, photographs, traveling, yoga, movies, quotes, lists, walking by the water, and sitting in the sunshine.

I love spending any sort of time in the kitchen – looking through cookbooks, writing, talking over a glass of wine, baking for the holidays, eating… I’m a foodie surrounded by people who generally think I’m nuts to be so interested and entertained by what I’m eating. But I simply can’t help myself.
I got very interested in nutrition and taking care of my body about two years after I graduated from college. I took up yoga, became vegetarian, and started reversing my generically unhealthy ways. I love finding recipes and making them my own, and wandering around the market for new foods to try.
I love films, from great to extremely horrible. The same goes for books. Even after my English degree, I’m more likely to take a really embarrassing young adult novel to the beach for a day than basically anything else. I’m a hopeless romantic. And I’m incredibly clumsy.

So there you have it… for now. I will inevitably remember I’ve left things out, and sometime, I’ll get into detail on my history and journey with food, nutrition, and health. Thanks for reading! 🙂
