Hi! My name is Tara and I’m a new mom to the most entertaining, goofy, intelligent little girl. I’m also married to the most kind-hearted, loving, supportive, funny and goofy man. I’m very lucky to have them in my life!

I started this blog back in 2009 as two separate blogs: Terracotta Café for my recipes (which has kind of been neglected) and Terra Fit for my weight loss journey. While on maternity leave (even though I knew I probably wouldn’t have a lot of time for anything) I thought I`d be able to work on some projects and really get into them. Well, I`m pretty sure if you`re a mom you know how that goes… I felt like I was struggling a bit on keeping up with the two separate blogs. I was also trying to figure out how I would incorporate my new life as a mom into it all. So one day in my brainstorming headquarters (the shower! The best!!) it came to me! Combine them! Problem solved!
One of my passions is cooking and baking (trying to incorporate that into my weight loss journey is a challenge sometimes! The baking part anyway.) and back in high school I wanted to own my café. Terracotta Café it would be. I do have a day job now that I love, so this is where I get to live out that dream. I want Terracotta Café to have the feeling that we`re walking into a café to hang out with your friends. Where we can sit down, have a coffee, sample something delicious and really enjoy ourselves. Talk about things going on in our everyday life from parenting to the home to trying to find that holy grail…. balance! So this isn`t only for me to have an outlet to share my passion, everday life and weight loss journey, but I also hope that maybe you could get something out of it as well!
I love hearing from you, so please leave comments! You can also reach me at taracotta07 at gmail dot com.
