About Me

Hi.  I'm Amy Morris and I live in Northern California near the great city of Sacramento.  My blog AMORRIS (amorous)  was created in 2008 as a way to stay connected with my friends and family, though I quickly realized that it was so much more than that.  At AMORRIS, I share tidbits about my family, what's baking in my oven, cooking on my stove and what’s growing in my garden. I also share bargains and thrifting ideas, along with recipes and posts that encourage readers to live a more authentic and connected life with others. I hope you will follow along.

My newest adventure in 2012 is baking along with the group Tuesdays with Dorie - Baking with Julia.  We are 300 bloggers strong from all over the world baking through Dorie Greenspan's book, Baking with Julia and posting about our adventures twice a month on Tuesdays.  Join me...it's going to be great!

Mr. CHiPy and Me

We are an internet dating success story.  Too bad we didn't meet on eHarmony or we would be the happy couple on their commercials.  I sent him a flirt, he responded and we married just two short months after we met.  Crazy for some, but perfect for us. 

This is why I call him Mr. CHiPy - Lieutenant Commander, California Highway Patrol (Retired 4/10).  These are his retirement pictures that he did just for me.

See those smiles?  

Those are real.
