Welcome to my blog. Well, this blog isn’t exactly me; it’s a more fun, more entertaining, sassier version of myself. I’m not nearly this entertaining in real life.
Launched in the spring of 2011, the Oh Shine On blog started as a project of healing to help me rediscover the importance of nourishment, health, and the right approach to food. Over the years, this blog has become an outlet, a space to share balanced, healthy recipes and momentary lapses of judgment. It is a sacred place, used to explore and expose the odd reveries that cross from one side of my head to the other. I share without fear and without judgment, but with a few beatles references and a lot of spilled coffee.
As I’ve grown and learned more about myself, I’ve become an observant of the world around me. My passions have led me to strive for a world where sustainability, hard work, innovation, love and community flourish.
My approach to life is similar to my approach to food. I believe that creativity, individuality, and a pinch of sass offer a whole lot more than just following a simple recipe.
I’m only twenty-two, but I appreciate all forms of expression, compassion, and acceptance. I want to be a friend and a part of your life. I want to hang out with you, pour a cup o’ jo for you, cook a meal for you, photograph you, converse about John Steinbeck and E.B. White with you, and learn from you.
