There are few things better than sharing good food with good people. Many of my happiest memories include a shared meal, and I’d reckon that many of yours do as well. I was raised in a family that appreciated food and took pleasure in all aspects of it.
“This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven’t tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome…”
Basically, all you need to know about me is my Myers-Briggs personality profile. I’m a textbook ENFP. This means I’m all over the place and excited by EVERYTHING.
It’s no secret that I love traveling and exploring, but there’s something to be said for putting down roots. And there is no better place to root yourself than Columbus, Ohio. I know that’s a bold statement, and I stand by it anyway.
It looks like you’ve stumbled on my virtual home. Get comfy, grab a latte, and let’s go on an adventure!
I created Lakes and Lattes as a way to remind myself to capture and reflect upon those special moments that make life incredible…the delicious rosemary shortbread cookies at my favorite brunch spot. Those waffles I’ve made a hundred times. The morning we got lost in Malaysia. That one time we flew halfway across the world to stay with a stranger.
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 and reflect on the simple pleasures all around us.
I’ll leave you with my favorite quote:
“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.”
