By day, I’m the director of marketing and public relations at the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce. I absolutely love what I do and that my career allows me to be connected to the larger community in a meaningful way. I’m also a food lover, deal finder, DIYer, amateur gardener, caffeine addict, cocktail aficionado, wife, and boymom.
Things I love:
testing out new recipes on unsuspecting friends and family
warm bread and salted butter, along with a bowl of olives, please
tacos al pastor, but mostly any taco
spending my money locally
the movie Rushmore
Wilco’s double album live in Chicago
designer items at consignment store prices
day trips with the fam
Guacamole, grapefruit margaritas, and the Greenhouse Tavern burger are things that make me giddy. Applebee’s, anything described as “smothered,” and food that’s not seasoned properly…not so much.
We recently traded in our little 1940s Cape Cod for a rambling, totally renovated mid-century ranch. It’s been a lifestyle and decor adjustment, but we’re enjoying this new season of life. And having a brand-new kitchen, where I spend an inordinate amount of time, couldn’t make me happier.
I’m a St. Louis native (GO CARDS!), and my family still lives there so I’m a frequent visitor. Thankfully, my parents are adventurous eaters, so I grew up going to Vietnamese restaurants and Mexican taco dives as if it were the norm. Now I’m trying to share similar experiences with my kiddos. So far, so good.
I married a Texan, moved away from STL, and we landed in Canton, Ohio. Yep, Canton. This has been our home for 18 years, and we’ve grown to love it. Except the winters…I really hate the winters. We go “exploring” as often as we can and report on our finds here. My hubs goes by Futureman – it’s been his online moniker for as long as I can remember.
