Where it all began... 

When I was a little girl my mother's "taste" had a lot of influence on me.  In a lot of ways this was limiting my exposure to new things.  My father continued to observe this and one day he decided it was enough.  He said to me:

"Laura, learn to decide what you like for yourself! Try everything once and if you don't like it, at least it's your choice.”


Although my father’s statement was specifically related to food, I did not realize how much of an impact it would have on all aspects of my life. It started to open my mind to new ideas, challenges, experiences, and the unknown to discover and learn more about myself.

This led to education and career choices, travels around the world, living abroad, and even love. Along my journey, I continue to learn how to be fearless in order to achieve all that life has to offer. 

This has not always been easy and I have had many struggles along the way. Trying to find my passion has been an extremely long and winding road. Sometimes I have felt completely off course. However, I believe that the magic truly happens outside of your comfort zone and that not trying is worse than failing. 

Which is why I am here to share with you, a taste of my life; all the bitter, sweet, sour, and salty! Who knows, maybe one of my stories will inspire you to pursue your dreams, try something new, or even end something that no longer fits in your life anymore!
