About Me: About
I am a SAHM who is almost, kind of, sort of a WAHM but mostly because I am blogging and learning social media and cooking (which I do anyway but now I write about it) and trying new places (Oh, the sacrifices I make for this blog) and reading (Oh, to be paid to read = dream job. I am someone who likes to read everything and have always been this way. If I could figure out a way to be paid for reading, I would). When I was thinking up blog names, I got stuck on Capability. I donât know why it resonated with me â it just did â er, does. When I remembered that there is a person named Capability Brown, I still liked it.

This is one of my favorite spots and has been since it opened. Great place to meet for coffee or lunch (try the kale salad) and now it's a go-to for takeout dinners.
