Hello! My name is Lauren, and I am a 28 year old just trying to live life to the fullest.
Three of my favorite things in life are food, wine, and traveling. This is a blog about celebrating it all while living a balanced and satisfying life.
But let me back up a bit…
I graduated from Elon University in 2006 with a Major in Broadcast Communications, and a Minor in Psychology. The day after I graduated I boarded a plane to LA to pursue my dream of becoming a TV Host.
I lived in Los Angeles for two years working at EXTRA, E!, and STYLE. It was quite an amazing and surreal experience, but it wasn’t right for me at that point in my life. I proceeded to move back east, where I am originally from, and seek out the food and wine industry. I had always loved food and wine so I felt this was a perfect opportunity for me to learn more.
I took a job at Cecile’s Wine Cellar, now Chain Bridge Cellars, as a wine consultant in July 2008 and have been there ever since. I am now in charge of all the food buying in the store, and I handle the food for all of our tasting events.
It has been such an amazing challenge and treat to learn about wine, and I continue to keep learning everyday.
Food is more to me than fuel. It is something that I think should be embraced and celebrated. I love trying food from around the world, and love learning about the culture behind it all.
In no way shape or form am I an expert on health, food, wine, or weight loss. I just know what I like and I like what I love. I am learning and growing everyday to be more knowledgeable in all these areas, and to be healthier and happier.
I have no idea what the future holds for me, but I am hopeful it is going to be something I love. I hope I can share my journey through life as I experience Food, Wine, and Traveling-some of the worlds greatest pleasures while maintaining healthy and happy!!
