No place like home #project365
(Project 365, 2012) 

I write, cook, and live in the Bay Area in California with my husband and son.  As a proud multi-passionate person, this blog has gone through a few transformations over the years.  Yet its essence has always been a love of learning and exploring my world, whether in the books I read, the places I visit, or in my home kitchen.

Thank you for reading and visiting.
