A typical day in my life includes…

well, first there’s coffee, then getting my kids to school, hopefully followed by a workout, either hot yoga or a hike, then recipe creating, cooking/ prepping dinner, massive amounts of laundry and errands, working on our GTK website followed by driving my kids literally ALL over town to their various sports practices.

I was born…

here in Arizona. My parents both went to ASU, then we moved to San Diego where I was raised and ended up back here 12 years ago.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the warm desert nights.

I’m listening to…

Dave Matthews and maybe a little Pitbull also.

My family…

spends a lot of time laughing, joking, dancing, watching sports, playing sports and having fun together. They are my favorite people in the world!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my husband’s dad. I never had the opportunity to meet him and I so wish I could have. I understand my husband is a lot like him and I’d give anything to ask him a ton of questions.

One thing I cannot live without…

Mexican food.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a doctor…a food blogger is kinda like that right??

I’m inspired by…

positive and optimistic people.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. He is so incredibly supportive of me and is like the best life coach. Always encouraging me to take risks and follow my dreams.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

hate and negativity. Can’t everyone just get along?

The perfect day would be…

sunny and warm, with a bike ride along the water and stopping for a seafood lunch then doing some stand up paddle boarding on calm beautiful water, then a nap under an umbrella on the sand followed by a moonlight dinner cruise or a big crackling bonfire…either would be perfect!

My first job was…

at a tanning salon! Yikes!

My favorite escape…

Lake Tahoe. It’s our most favorite place and we spend a lot of time there as a family.

My life…

is full of crazy busy chaos and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m currently working on…

being patient and present in the moment. Life goes so fast and I want to preserve all of it!

Always…

have a sense of humor and laugh at yourself. I swear it makes life more fun…I’m pretty good at it!

Never…

judge.

Favorite Quote…

my kids would say it’s “Be Kind”, I say it constantly. It’s not super deep or profound, just a really important message in life.

Biggest Dream…

is that Good Thyme Kitchen will continue to prosper and become the dream business that Kari and I are working so hard at obtaining…and that my kids will grow up to be happy, responsible, strong and really kind adults.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

loud eaters and rude people.
