Colombia

March 6, 2011

Life is beautiful and unpredictable, like all great adventures. So often I find that the most rewarding experiences I’ve had and decisions I’ve made have been the result of complete surprises. I never thought about going to Colombia, but when my boyfriend, whom we’ll call Mr. L, mentioned the destination, I started researching and planning. […]

Lost and Found

February 4, 2011

When my grandmother went into a nursing home a few years ago and no longer had a place to cook or the ability, I thought I’d never again taste her savory, smoky, perfect Brunswick Stew. One of my oldest food memories is the taste of that stew that consisted of smoked pork and beef, peas, […]

Barcelona

After a few hours of sleep following a night out in London we boarded the first flight to Barcelona! Our first stop was the Picasso museum then the beach. Our days in this very chill coastal city consisted of mornings grazing in the market (fresh fruit and chocolate croissants), long walks sprinkled with visits to […]

London Part 1

October 19, 2010

August brought me back to London after a span of over 10 years. At 18, during my first semester as a freshman in college, I lived there for 6 weeks. I can barely recall a thing I learned during that time but remember fondly a city full of adventure and promise for my very young […]
