Hello and welcome to LiveDineParty!

For about a year now I have been telling my husband that I am going to start a blog…and finally, here is my first post. After following so many amazing blogs over the years, I have decided to take up a hobby and give it a shot with my own blog. Entertaining, cooking and baking are my passions in life and I hope to share some of my recipes, ideas, thoughts and experiences with all of you. 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.

And now I’ll pretend that my family is not the only ones reading this, and tell you a little about myself.  I’m Lauren the author of LiveDineParty. The acronym of LiveDineParty is LDP, which is what my friends call me. By day I am an accountant for an investment firm. I got married in October 2012 and am enjoying every day of married life with my husband Matt.

Thanks for checking out my blog and I look forward to hearing from you!
