Why am I smiling?
Because these desserts are so good and someone else is watching my kids at this moment.
Things to Know About Me
I'm a mom
Of three kids. Yes, it's as crazy as it sounds. One of my kiddos has special needs so I'm hustling like a crazy person. All. The. Time. Speech, OT, Quick IEP update? Best believe I am doing ALL the things. I found my real strength as a momma after spending months living in the hospital between DC and Boston with my oldest. And I wouldn't trade this life or these kids for anything. Plus, they're all cuties, so what are you going to do but do it?
I’ve worked in the beauty industry for the past 10+ years.
Sales, product development, marketing, international business development...I've done it all. I still work in the industry. And I love it. It gives me an outlet for my curiosity and satisfies my cravings for artistic, beautiful things. Want to talk about dope packaging design? Or the latest Gucci popup in Tokyo? Let's do it. If you see random posts on Instagram from New York, it's because I'm there for work. To me food and beauty products are both expressions of art and I love them both.
I'm a Virgo
Which makes me a crazy organized person. I can't help it. I love handwriting in notebooks and planners and cute post it notes. I have a family binder for my babysitter. I drive my husband insane. But I've never left my passport at home before a 20 hour trip to South Africa. (Ahem...) I totally lean into the crazy and embrace it. It's the only way I keep my house together.
Cooking is my meditation.
Cooking is where I have always felt the most relaxed, the most anti-Virgo and the place where I can truly unwind from the craziness of my life. I love that baking is scientific and reliable (well, not gluten free baking) and how people can get joy from what you make with your own two hands. I love that.
There’s a saying “I make because I must.” And that’s true to my core. I hope you can feel that when you taste my products.
