Hi, I'm Liz.  

I'm a midwestern girl who lives in Iowa with my amazing husband, Tim and our incredible son Theodore and daughter Madeleine.  I love to discover new recipes, entertain family and friends, visit unknown travel destinations, and enjoy the occasional martini.  

Most of my time is spent being a mom to the coolest 5-year-old kid and almost 2-year-old daughter, a wife to my best friend (cheesy I know), and a career I absolutely LOVE for a company whose mission I fully believe in! 


This blog is a place for me to share some of my favorite things: recipes, travel journals, motherhood stories and positive thoughts.
