Hello, my name is Silvia Harkenrider and thank you for visiting two simple ideas! I am a stepmom, wife, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, niece, friend, neighbor, acquaintance, HUGE animal lover, environmental activist, citizen of the United States of America, and essentially… a citizen of the world. I was born in Canada to Croatian immigrants and as a family we moved to America in 1978. Over the years, I’ve done my fair share of travelling and schooling (teaching and attending). Hence, I have been very fortunate to have met a plethora of amazing people; most importantly, my husband and my reason for moving to the Chicagoland area.
After our wedding, two simple ideas began as a wedding/wine blog and over the years, the concept progressively changed…with purpose. Essentially, I have become much more active in living well and making strides to treat the world around me like a precious commodity. As I continue to obsessively research and write, I hope you will begin to understand why my new blogging journey began with food and how food has made me realize that it goes way beyond what we put into our bodies; it’s like I opened Pandora’s food box and there’s no going back!
