About Me

My name is Ayesha born and raised in DUUUUUVVVAAAALLL County! Jacksonville, Fl. I am a single mother of a 4 year old son whom I love with all my soul and dedicate this blog and my future successes too. I can only pray that I raise him as a good and decent man that has goals and the drive to achieve them.
Currently, I work full time at a well known health insurance company and I've been employed with them for 5 years and counting. I plan to enroll back into school during the 2010-2011 terms and plan to continue pursuing my Nursing degree and also to focus on my small business technical certificate; while also earning my A.S degree in Culinary Management.

I have always enjoyed cooking, the earliest memory I have is being about 5 years old cutting up bell peppers and onions for my grandmother Rosey Lou who helped my father raise me. My grandmother nurtured my enjoyment of cooking by allowing me to help in the kitchen and in the garden. She taught me to so much about cooking and life.

I look forward to sharing my journey through single motherhood, earning a higher education and starting my own business. My initial venture will be Purple Lemonade Catering and Event Planning with dreams of becoming so much more.
