Life is sweet but so uncertain. This blog is growing up and figuring out who it is, just as I am. I know what I love…what makes me smile so big I can’t see through my squinty brown eyes, but I’m still discovering what to do with those things and what my place is in this exciting world. This is what I do know…
I’m twenty five years old. Yet, I still obsess over Hanson as if I’m 13 and wear pearls that are four times my age.
I live in the fantastic pink tree-filled city of Washington, DC. But I also consider quiet Paris streets, Nantucket beaches and New Jersey farm stands my home.
I studied journalism, art history and dance at The George Washington University where I had the great opportunity to practice my combined passion for writing and the arts. Now I work at GW and since it’s no secret I love my Colonials, every so often, the Buff and Blue will creep into my posts.
The best coffee tables are made out of stacks of over-read magazines. When I had the fortune to actually work at a magazine and even pick out real coffee tables to publish, it changed my life.
My favorite color? Is sparkle a color?
I also adore yearbooks, impressionism, whales, monograms and flocked fabrics.
Finally, and probably most importantly, feeding others makes me the happiest. Cooking and baking for and with family, friends and boyfriends…this is what love means to me.
I make simple, comforting food that tells stories of happy bellies and joyful gatherings. This most usually means big bowls of pasta and chocolate cake.
I actually do eat cupcakes for breakfast. They’re better than cereal.
