Wrapping Up 2016

12.27.16

We’re on the final days of 2016 and what a great year it has been! I have travelled to parts of the world I never thought imaginable, launched a new business, and even managed to bring you some fun, new content here on the blog. I’m wrapping up 2016 with a recap of some of my favorite posts!

My love for being in the kitchen has grown substantially over the past year as I continue to learn to cook, bake and serve delicious meals that are gluten and dairy free. The most used recipe is my homemade vanilla almond milk. It’s used to make anything from 4-ingredient cookies to açai bowls, caramel sauce and gourmet chia seed pudding.

You can also find a ton of my innovative, delicious recipes over on the Cambria Wines and Murphy-Goode Winery blogs! I’ve made anything from Hawaiian Portobello Mushroom Burgers, Hickory Wood Smoked Chicken, Mini Vanilla Donuts with Maple Glaze to Korean Beef Skewers, Crockpot Carnitas Street Tacos, Gameday Cheesesteak Sliders and my favorite, Mexican Cauliflower Rice Bowl with Chicken. Ohhhh man, they all turned out so good!

When I wasn’t whipping up yummy dishes for the wineries, it felt like I was on the move! I traveled to Beaver Creek, CO for our annual ski trip in January, went to NYC on a girls trip in April, a 17-day trip to Italy in June, 2 weeks in Wisconsin, back to Lake Tahoe for our summer vacation, only to travel back overseas to Greece for a wedding in September and then ended it with a weekend trip to San Diego for a workshop. It was truly a magical year & one that is going to be pretty hard to live up to!

Wait, wait, wait …. how can I not talk about wrapping up the amazing things that have happened this year without reminding you that my home was featured on Glitter Guide!! Talk about dream come true and the most incredible honor that people wanted to see inside MY home. It really pushed me to finish up those last minute areas that needed decorating, but it was all worth it.

I can’t wrap up 2016 without acknowledging that I officially launched my own business in October!! The creation of Modish Digital was something brewing in my heart for years and I finally worked up the courage to make it official. It’s a boutique creative marketing firm specializing in helping small businesses utilize effective marketing and social strategies, as well as offering my photography services. This winter I had the incredible opportunity to photograph 8 families! You can view all of my work via my PORTFOLIO.
