Favorite O2O Projects you’ve worked on:
The Seeker Wines! Not only did I get to try 2 amazing wines (BONUS!), but Maryellen (the Senior Project Manager) was so beyond helpful and the brand was a delight to work with as well.
Favorite part of being an O2O Member:
Everyone is so helpful and the opportunities are so fun and different from other networks.
Tell us how you came to be a blogger.
I started blogging almost 2 years ago (I can’t believe that!) as a creative “escape” from my high pressure job. I was so weighed down by tasks that I wasn’t taking any time to do the things that really fuel my spirit.
Name another blogger you admire and why.
There are many, but I will always admire Becky Hardin (The Cookie Rookie). She was one of the first bloggers I reached out to when I was starting and I was blown away at how helpful and encouraging she was. I already loved her blog and her kindness made me love it even more so.
Is there a piece of advice, quote, or mantra that you live by?
“If your dreams don’t scare you then they aren’t big enough.”
What is the best compliment you have ever received?
That I inspired someone to pursue their dream.
What was your last best meal?
What is the best thing to do where you live?
Eat! Columbus’ food scene is bursting with talented chefs and restauranteurs and there are so many fun pockets of town with great food, culture and activities.
Night owl or early bird?
A recovering night owl trying to become an early bird.
What is your favorite time of the year?
Three things you can’t live without (besides family/friends/faith).
