At 26, I’ve made the crazy decision to go back to school for law. Since that’s bound to eat up most of my time, I’m sure my life will soon just revolve around books during the week and blogging during the weekend. Maybe I’m fooling myself though and every day of the week will be devoted to law by the time October hits. However, there are a few things about which I am not delusional:
- I’m guaranteed to bring up my year abroad on this blog a few times a year. I am fine with bragging about it in order to relive some of those memories.
- I write a lot about wine, but there are roughly a thousand wine blogs out there which are better than mine. I’m a twenty-something stumbling my way through the world of wine, and that’s what this blog is all about- my discovering new things and hopefully keeping you interested along the way!
- Despite my love of gin and tonics, I am somewhat competent at creating new cocktails- although you will see that I shake my martinis more often than not (I blame my mother).
- I didn’t realize that when I named this blog that everyone hates the word foodie. As it is, the name is staying.
On a more serious note, to me food is exciting, constantly changing, and its own art form that can continually surprise and satisfy. Some of my favorite things are duck, red wine, and all things dessert. If there’s a sticky toffee pudding on a menu, I am guaranteed to order it. Although most of these things are fairly common foods to come across, I also love exploring foods that most people wouldn’t even think to try, such as duck hearts or lamb brain. I don’t love everything, but I will try just about anything. The only thing I’ve outright turned down was a lamb’s eyeball…but that’s a story for a different day.
Outside of food and travel, I’m obsessed with comic books, Doctor Who, Christmas, and dresses. You can follow me on Instagram, where I share a number of pictures that don’t end up on this blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or Pinterest.
