A day in the life of With Style and Grace Print Recipe Print Recipe


This past summer, my two guy friends and I thew around the idea of creating a video. They were looking to build a portfolio and well, I was looking to do the same.


We filmed it in my hometown, Seattle Washington – a place where I spent the first 24 years of my life. You could say I have a few memories.


Pike Place Farmers Market is my happy place. When I was younger we’d go as a family and my dad would buy my sister and I a knot ring. They filled our jewelry boxes.  When we got older, we’d go with Dad to pick up the ingredients for dinner and he’d proudly introduce us to his people – aka favorite vendors. My husband and I even had our engagement pictures taken there. All that said, it’s the perfect intro to my me and my world.


That’s my parents kitchen. We all love to cook, especially for family and friends. My parents are exceptional entertainers. I guess you could say I learned a few things from them.


Speaking of, I’m on a plane now heading there for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and attend a 2 day workshop.


Tonight I’m having a few friends over to my parents house for a pre-birthday drinks + eats. Then Saturday [my actual birthday] and Sunday, I’ll be attending Blogshop, which I’m SO excited for!


Thank you all for supporting me in my passion. I can’t even begin to count the times [per day] I look over at my husband and say, “I have the best readers. I so love them.” If I could give you all a hug, I would. Thank you, thank you, always.


Now, if you haven’t already, check out & enjoy our little “day in the life of” video.
