I’m a soon-to-be mother, blogger, writer, entrepreneur living in North Carolina. I love to garden and experiment in the kitchen, even though my boyfriend doesn’t always enjoy the fruits of my labor (he dreads seeing my kombucha scoby hanging out on top of my fridge).

I graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Communication Media. Go Wolfpack! Though I loved Raleigh and stayed there for about 7 years total, I couldn’t fight the urge to eventually return back to my small hometown where the stars shine brightly at night and the worst traffic jam is getting stuck behind a tractor during harvest season.

My boyfriend and I hope to expand beyond our 1/2 an acre one day soon so that we can expand our mini homestead to include a small orchard, geese/ducks/quail, and other farm animals.

I’m not new to the blogging world. I’ve been blogging on and off since the days of LiveJournal and Geocities. Besides this blog, I run The Edible Coast which is a food blog geared towards the best that the coastal United States has to offer through recipes, travel, restaurant reviews, and products.
