I come from a small town. I was taught not to fear a little dirt and hard work. 

Somewhere along the way, at some point in my life, I was given more opportunities than I could have ever imagined. Amidst a crowd of hundreds of thousands of 20-something year-olds trying to make a life for themselves, I've decided I'm going to work to avoid what I see as the superficial corporate climb.

I've realized my creativity is never going to go away and that I need an outlet to channel it.  

I strive to expand the worldview of those around me and encourage everyone I know to get excited about new experiences and opportunities. In doing so, I’ve started this blog to capture the significant moments of my twenties and uncover some of the best and most hidden food, entertainment, nature, wellness & home-related finds wherever I happen to be at the moment. College made it difficult for me to write creatively, just for me, and two degrees later, it’s time for me to get back to the things I’m most passionate about.


My dream? To make a difference every day, some way, some how.

A lover of all things, when I’m not blogging you’ll find me chasing beautiful sunsets, sipping a cup of coffee on the beach, traveling the globe, perfecting my camera skills, at a spin class or curled up with a good book and a glass of wine.

If the era of millennials means one thing, it’s multitasking. So while I’m working zealously to build my blog, I also work full-time, freelance and attempt to keep my social life in place. Bear with me if my posts come in spurts.

If there’s one quote that’s led me through these past few years, it’s the following:

“Be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”

If there’s something you can’t stop thinking about or a dream you can’t stop chasing, but have been told to because it’s not ‘realistic’ by societies standards, go out and get it. Take the risk, shoot for the moon. You’ll never know what could be unless you try. And do it all with a smile on your face.

Join me on my journey to see the world, one city and taste bud at a time!
