Hello and welcome to LiveDineParty!
I have been wanting to start a blog as a hobby for about a year now and I’m finally getting started! My name is Lauren. By day I am an accountant for an investment firm, living and working in Massachusetts. I got married in October 2012 and am enjoying every day of married life with my husband Matt. I am now a new mom of our King Henry. I love being a wife and a mom everything that comes along with it. I grew up in a large Italian family where food and hosting is an important part of everyday life. I have learned a lot from some of the best cooks in the world, my Nana and my mom. Entertaining, cooking and baking are my passions and I hope to use my blog to share some of my recipes, ideas, thoughts and experiences with all of you.
The name…the acronym of LiveDineParty is LDP, which is what my friends call me. Those are my old initials, and I couldn’t completely give up my nickname after getting married and changing my name. So, I’m letting it live on through my blog!
I hope to inspire all of you to be fearless of the ever daunting dinner party or to just enjoy a quiet dinner for two at home.
Thanks for checking out my blog and I look forward to hearing from you!
