A Little Bit About Kelly
I’m on a mission to help you feel balanced and confident in an often hectic world. Like you, I understand the importance of balance – in addition to being a blogger, I’m also a pediatrician and a wife. Needless to say, things can get pretty busy.
I live in San Francisco, California with my husband, Pat, and our puppy, Maddie. We moved to San Francisco from Wisconsin in 2013 to start new jobs and a new adventure a few days after getting married!
I’m so lucky to have found a man who will run across the world with me and be a partner to me in everything I do. In the past six years, we’ve explored the souks of Morocco ridden in an old time convertible in Havana, Cuba and surfed in Cape Town, South Africa. You’ll find stories from our adventures on this blog. All photography is original work taken by us unless otherwise specified.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m a total foodie, so fitness is so important to keep me feeling balanced and confident. No matter how busy life gets, I make it a priority. Most mornings, you’ll find me up at 4:45 am hitting the streets of San Francisco for a run.
I also enjoy food photography and recipe development. I’ve been lucky enough to do both of these things as a side career. If you’re looking for a beautifully-photographed original recipe for your business, let’s talk! Here’s are just a few brands I’ve worked with:
Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Mark & Graham
San Jose International Airport
This blog is a place for projects that Pat and I do, things I bake and things I create. It’s also where I share tips for things to do in San Francisco as we explore this amazing city. You can see what I’m up to real time on Instagram or Snapchat (@ASideofSweet). I really love sharing what’s going on outside of the blog on these platforms and I’d love to connect with you there too. Thanks for stopping by.
