Hi there! I am Victoria Griffing and welcome to Victoria Michelle Blog! Here you will find little pieces of all my interests and hobbies – my adventures in the kitchen, parenting support, activities for kids, and style.
I live here in Connecticut with my husband, our toddler, and our first babies Cabo (a beagle) and Bengal (our rescue cat). I will soon be the mom of two little boys under two in Feburary 2017. As you can imagine we have tons of fun! You can follow along in our unedited, messy, silly real life moments over on Snapchat @vicmichelleblog.
This past year I put my teaching degrees to good use and fulfilled my dream of being a business owner by opening an educational home daycare. Not only do I get to continue working with children, but this opportunity allows me to be home with our children and watch them grow, which was a top priority for us. I share little snippets of our activities and kid-friendly recipes here on the blog as well. If I can ever be of any help with ideas, please always feel free to email me with questions because it does take a village and I’m always here to help!
I started blogging about ten years ago. At that time, my focus was strictly food. I had just moved out of my parents’ house and was learning to navigate life on my own. Since I grew up Italian, no recipe was ever written down, which made learning to fend for myself in the kitchen a challenge. Enter food blogging! My original blog was really just a personal collection of recipes that I could remake again (complete with actual measurements!) When I realized others enjoyed recreating my recipes, I started working extra hard to build my blog.
I’ve come a long way from snapping crappy food photos on my pink Palm Pilot college cell phone, but I still have so much learning ahead of me. Since getting married, buying our first home, turning 30 and having kids, my blog has become my “me time” outlet where I can collect moments from all aspects of my life. I am also terrible at keeping a hand written journal or baby book and my recipes scribbled on Post Its can get out of control. This blog is my way of documenting important parts of our family’s life, traditions, and growth. As we grow, Victoria Michelle Blog grows too. I am excited to see where the future takes this endeavor!
