I’m an insatiably curious freelance writer and blogger with an appetite for new experiences, places and meals.
My natural restlessness inspires me to travel the globe – when money and time allow – and I’ve been to Paris, London, throughout Italy, Southern Spain and India plus many cities in Mexico (before the drug wars) the US and Canada. I like nothing better than taking off and exploring another culture, cuisine and way of life. The place I’m dying to go? Egypt. But, apparently revolution happens when you procrastinate.
In 2007 I left my beloved hometown of Orange County, California and moved to Seattle, Washington to start married life. A new town, my first marriage, and a weather pattern and lifestyle that is a 180 degrees from Orange County. The adjustment is often fun, sometimes meltdown worthy, sometimes baffling, but always interesting, really cold and full of potholes.
Why did I start this blog? Because, as Auntie Mame so famously says, “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!” Too many of us (myself included) have become those starving suckers. We’re stuck in a rut of waking up, working all day, coming home, watching TV and going to sleep, just to wake up and do it all again. We may add a workout to the routine, take-out, a night out, or a movie, but most of our time is spent in the same boring patterns. It’s time to stop going hungry!
This blog is about living, evolving, indulging and finding ways to steal little moments out of even the busiest day to enjoy and experience life. Let’s get to it and “Live, Live, Live!“
