I'm curious! LMK in the comments!

✨Did your career go as planned?✨ I decided at the ripe old age of 7, 😆to become a professional ballet dancer. I loved moving to music & the happiness it brought me. And, it truly delivered… for a long time. Rehearsals, pointe shoes, stage lights, and tutus. Fellow dancers who became family. Stories told through dance. But, there was always something more calling me out of the ballet studio… and I chose to follow that call. Flash forward to teaching & connecting, suddenly becoming a matriarch to a family that needed Thanksgiving dinners and home cooked meals. Recipes written (and now a cookbook!) and hosting techniques discovered. I found my next passion and my calling. ❤️Where did you start and where are you now? Was it a linear journey?

Pastel colors are trendy and and just put me in a happy mood! Bring a little of that Springtime feeling into your home this week! • Want more?

Is it ever too cold for ice cream? 🍨 Granted, I live in New England, where a medium iced coffee is a year-round must! This ice cream is triple delicious because it has three types of creamy dairy in it. Bonus zesty fresh lime zest and smooth Thai basil leaf is steeped into the warmed custard. Perfect on its own or with a little drizzle of chocolate. Green Thai Basil & Lime Ice Cream will give you the good kind of shivers ❄️ 🤤Want the recipe? RUN to my blog!
