09/30/14 – surprise trip to san francisco

Posted on September 30, 2014


It’s been a busy summer, but earlier this June, Alexis, Kathy, and I made a surprise trip to visit Sam in San Francisco. She had literally no idea we were coming, which made the trip all the better.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting my good friend Laura Iu (pronounced “you”) in her natural element: the kitchen! Laura is on her way to becoming a registered dietitian, and she is blogging/instagramming her journey. Her blog, Do What Iu Love, is filled with healthy, yet amazingly tasty, recipes, from her signature smoothies to vegan baked treats. Be sure to check it out!

09/15/14 – #southernfriedtour2014: TN to NJ

Posted on September 15, 2014


This is the last post from mine and Henah’s southern road trip. We decided to make the drive from Nashville to New Jersey in one day, a total of 14 hours. We planned a few stops along the way, because 14 hours of straight driving is enough to make anyone insane.

abe lincoln birthplace kentuckyOur first stop off was Hodgenville, Kentucky, the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln. The thing about Kentucky is that it’s really quite beautiful, but it’s literally just farm after farm after farm.

abe lincoln birthplaceThe log cabin that Abe Lincoln was *born* in, a tiny one room structure. It was preserved in this beautiful marble structure. Unfortunately, we couldn’t enter the cabin or touch it.

abe lincoln birthplaceI wonder why they changed the sign from “Please refrain from touching the cabin” to “Please do not touch the cabin.” I guess a sterner warning was necessary.

loretto kentuckyOur second stop was in the tiny town of Loretto, Kentucky…

maker's mark tour kentucky…the amazing and wonderful Maker’s Mark Distillery aka the adult Willy Wonka Factory.

lexington kentuckyOur third stop: Lexington, Kentucky for lunch.

hot brown lexington kentuckyAnd that lunch was an incredible Kentucky staple: the “hot brown.” It’s an open faced sandwich, with turkey and ham, covered in some sort of gravy sauce, smothered with cheese, baked in the oven, and topped with a fried green tomato. It’s only fitting that this was my last meal in the South.
