The idea to start my own blog began in my mind several months ago. Life started taking new turns, interests began shifting, and the inspiration from other blogs, mostly ones devoted to food, planted a certain seed within my head that I knew needed to be explored. Until now, I never had the push I needed to begin this blog journey, but the icing on the cake was a recent trip I took to London & Paris which reawakened my spirit and my mind in a way that I really haven’t known in a long time. So many moments of that trip were too glorious for me to comprehend; certain things I saw, emotions I felt, and food I ate put me in a state of overwhelming bliss. Even better, this trip helped me to forget some of the recent issues I had been dealing with before I left. That, above all, made it easy to finally let go and to appreciate the magnitude of what I had been seeing.
So, a little about me. I’m a mid-twenties female from New York City trying to find her niche in this large, always moving place. By day, I do the 9-5 routine in a job that’s a bit less than ideal. In the evenings you can usually find me in the practice room trying to work on my recently discovered soprano voice. I also love cooking, eating, reading about food, talking about food, eating at new restaurants, and looking over recipes and flavor combinations. Experimenting with new ideas is one of my favorite ways to play around. I hope to share those new ideas, experiments, flops and wonders with you here. All of this, hopefully, in the context of my life.
Sure, it may get personal. I think that’s okay. I’ve spent so much of the past 5-8 years trying desperately to shield people out of my life that I think it’s finally time I let them back in. I want people to learn who I am again (in case they forgot!), and I want to, above all, embark on this journey without knowing where, if anywhere, it’ll lead. All inhibitions are out the window, and it’s me and you.
So, this is the blog. It’ll be about travel, food, eating food while traveling, living, experiencing, being, discovering…all that, that’s what I want my blog to be. Let’s see where this goes…
