View From The 86th Floor

Haaaaah! Excuse me while I take in this amazing view from the 86th floor of The Empire State Building. That’s where I took my mom when she came to visit me. No ice skating, again, but after seeing this view, we didn’t care. Isn’t it just everything? No lie, I would have stayed there all… Read More


When You Try New Things

A couple of weeks ago, my mom came to visit me. The thought of it still has me beaming. Here’s the thing. My mom is not the adventurous type. Sound familiar? We both know it’s a problem. She tells me “you can’t let fear control your life.” And I say the same can be said… Read More


It Was All A Dream

I have been feeling a little down lately. Unsure of myself more than usual and quite frankly, scared that I uprooted my whole life for nothing.

Quinoa Granola Bars

I must be getting old because I am slowly turning into that crazy person who wants to know how everything is made. The more I take control of my health, the more I question if what I thought was healthy for me really is. Let’s take granola bars for instance. I’ve loved them since grade… Read More


Food: My Unscripted Love Letter

My entire life, I have searched for the right words to complete my thoughts, a poem, or more recently, a blog post. Words soothe me. They’ve taken me on trips to faraway places and given insight into other people’s inner thoughts. More personally, when written, they’ve given me the courage to say the things that… Read More
