Joy In Every Season

Renee is a wife (34 years and going strong), a mom (to three grown daughters and two son-in-laws), and Nana to four of the sweetest grand babies (# 5 is due in July). I am truly blessed! I am born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA and a fun little fact about me is that my husband and I went to kindergarten together. I love entertaining, whether it’s hosting a party, a large family BBQ, or simply a dinner for two. I also enjoy gardening, photography, my home, an occasional craft, and family & friends. Cooking and serving others in the comfort of my home truly brings me joy! After I retired from newborn photography, I decided that a food blog would combine many of my passions, thus "Joy in Every Season" was born!
