It looks like you’ve stumbled upon my virtual home.  Welcome!  

I created Lakes and Lattes as a way  to capture and reflect upon those simple moments that make life special…that delicious pastry.  The picnic in the park.  That morning we hiked along a beautiful trail.  The night we got lost. The people I’ve met and the foods I’ve eaten. 

This blog features my two passions – food and adventure.  My favorite meals, much like my favorite trips, vary from playful and unfussy to daring and detailed. It is my greatest hope that you will find some inspiration here to nudge you to take an adventure of your own – either through food or travel. 

“Life is so great and we only get a tiny moment to enjoy everything we see. And that moment is right now. And that moment is counting down. And that moment is always, always fleeting. You will never be as young as you are right now.”

― Neil Pasricha, The Book of Awesome
