Work doesn’t feel like a J-O-B when you get to do it with fun people. I’m so happy to be in Charleston with my events partner-in-crime! #havenconf #charlestonsc #lifewelllived #worktravellife #authenticlife #bloggerconference
Heading back to Charleston next week for a conference! Where should I be hitting up for dinner this time?
Me: *puts on a jumpsuit because yay cozy!* Five minutes later… Me: *has to pee* Dammit.

Super excited that my new @away bag arrived today! Taking it for a test run to Vegas next week - this baby is going to get a lot of use over the fall!
Wonderful night on the farm for @springdalefarm’s last tomato dinner. Going to miss this piece of the community so much!

Please please please remember that depression is a real, mostly invisible thing. Even if we look happy, even if we ARE happy, it can be there. It simmers and waits. Reach out if you know someone; reach out if you are someone. Love and be kind.

Can’t wait for May 26 so we can stop talking about GDPR, right guys? Right? Hahaha. Ugh.
Rolled ice cream has hit Pflugerville! We’re pretending today is my birthday and hitting some local spots. With our weather, the more ice cream options, the better! . . . . . #pflugervillepfoodies #rolledicecream #howisummer
You cancel Brooklyn 99 and keep Last Man Standing?
You know you haven’t seen many movies lately when you want to see nearly everything the airplane has featured.
These bluebonnets grew from seeds I saved from the patch at our old house. We’ll let those seed pods in the background do their thing so this bed can grow each year. . . . . . . . #texasforever #wildflowers #bluebonnets #gardening #backyardgarden

Disaster relief brings another meaning to the concept of “comfort food,” which so many of us take for granted in our everyday lives. During disasters/aftermath, a cup of coffee is comfort. #shrimpandgrit18
So many moving stories about how people came together in aftermath of Harvey. Common thread? *We can take care of each other.* We need to make more of an effort to take care of each other without a disaster prompting it. #shrimpandgrit18
Cultural layers: Boudin kolache with cheese, made at a Cambodian donut shop #shrimpandgrit18
This morning, learning about boudin sausage, the creolized food of Houston, with @robbwalsh. (Creolization - the process of assimilation in which neighboring cultures share certain features to form a new distinct culture.) #shrimpandgrit18

I can’t believe there are no donuts to eat during this donut panel. #shrimpandgrit18 #alldonutsallthetime
Your local Texas donut shop? Probably owned by a Cambodian family, as it is estimated that 95% of them are. #shrimpandgrit18

“If they didn’t have any homemade links, they didn’t have any business.” - Ray Busch #shrimpandgrit18
Now learning about Southeast Texas-style BBQ, which is different from the more known style from Central Texas style. SE has influences from Cajun/Louisiana flavors, including juicy garlic-bomb links, which I need to eat immediately. #shrimpandgrit18

“You see a lot of the beautiful side of people that you don’t know exists” while providing relief. #shrimpandgrit18
“We’re still providing the community with basic needs” in Rockport, nearly 8 months later. #shrimpandgrit18
As a result of experience, the chefs documented the process for feeding people to share with the industry. Facebook, spreadsheets, Slack, etc all help for distribution/asks. “We gave them back a little bit of normality.” #shrimpandgrit18
First up: talking about what it takes to feed in a disaster, from chefs who worked to help during/after Hurricane Harvey #shrimpandgrit18
Hey y’all! I’m in Houston for the next few days at @foodwaysTX symposium, probably tweeting some nuggets. #shrimpandgrit18
My 10yo is more jealous of his 4yo brother now than when the little guy was born. So that’s fun.

I am SO excited for this book. I’ve listened to the @beingbossclub podcast for a while now and had @andkathleen speak at the 2017 @mediavine conference in Charleston. I love what they are doing to lift up other boss babes. Congrats on your book, ladies!…
Me: Why is Twitter over capacity? Also me, after checking AP wire: OH.
Happy pilot drop anniversary, @parksandrecnbc ! Thanks for giving us Leslie.

The rest of the family is off camping, and they’ve only been gone 2.5 hours but I feel like I’ve rediscovered what living is.
The only problem with living in the suburbs is craving a specific food and having to drive into ATX to get it, and being too lazy to do so.

Not gonna lie. Getting back on track after nearly two weeks is HARD. I cancelled all of my earlier classes this week because I was simply exhausted from California. But excuses come pretty quickly once you start making them, and it’s hard to stop them. W…

It’s my last day in California, so I’m taking a moment for this Santiago - espresso, milk, cocoa, ginger, cayenne, and cinnamon. Perfect way to end a crazy week. #stettedtravel #mvcon18 #coffeeshots

It’s not hard to see why people love California.

I’m eating nacho fries with carne asada but the place didn’t have iced tea, so I don’t know about you, California.
