About Me: I am a mom, a wife, a friend, a holistic health coach, a nutritional consultant, and a part-time blogger! My husband and I relocated to North Carolina from NYC to raise our family...Elle (4), Coco (1), Hattie (cavapoo), and Whisky (German shepherd). I LOVE to cook, entertain, travel, explore, and learn new things. When I'm not spending time with my husband and our girls, I like to exercise, create healthy recipes, read cookbooks, watch documentaries (mostly about food!), and shop (mostly online for active wear!!). My husband Oliver and I spend our time together cooking delicious food and drinking great wine. We are most passionate about our family, food, and travel. My sister is my best friend in the world and I'm happiest when we are together with our families (she lives in NYC and has four children!).
