Food has always been a passion of mine. Some of my fondest memories are surrounded by food; German family breakfasts at my Grandparent's house in Ann Arbor, a plate of Cacio e Pepe in Chicago that changed my world, and my mom's cheesecake that she made each year at Christmas. Food is an important part of life, more than just nourishment, it's a great way to enjoy the little things in life, show people that you care about them and make memories.


Jake Owen (Country singer, look him up if you don't know who he is!) said it best "you only have one life, so you gotta live it"! I hate the question "What do you do for fun" beacause, well, I find a lot of things to be fun! Travel, Skiing, Cooking, Photography, etc, etc, etc. I'm also a fan of 5 second dance parties, when you feel that life doesn't get any better, do a little 5 second jig to express how happy you are!


Fashion is my passion, no, I didn't mean for that to rhyme! I have always believed that what you wear is a way to show your personality! For instance, I love hats, shoes and scarves and I almost always wear earrings. Hats are the perfect accessory to any outfit, shoes, well, they carry you through your day and scarves, well ,they keep me warm and add a nice pop of color to any outfit.
