I’m a designer and art director with a passion for food, travel, hosting parties, and enjoying everyday moments with my husband and dogs in Seattle.

I passionately believe in these words by Virginia Woolf, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” It is my everyday goal to dine well—over a meal made by my hands, or at one of my local favorite spots—because I believe the power of sharing a meal can move mountains. It can inspire, comfort, and connect people.

I’m a born and raised Texan living in the amazing city of Seattle. I spend my time working as a creative in the advertising/marketing industry, and writing about my love of (eating and cooking) food, interior decorating, hosting parties, travel, adventure, and everyday moments with my friends, husband and dogs.

I hope my blog will inspire you to be creative in your own way, and explore the world around you.
