I met Libby in college but I’ve really kept up with her travels and adventures in cooking on Instagram. A few weeks ago she posted a drawing she did for someone and I asked if she would draw rosemary for me to hang in our new kitchen. Rosemary reminds me of home. Alex’s mom grows tons of rosemary all over their yard so now it’s one of my favorite smelling herbs.

Lately we’ve been catching up a bit on life and how Libby came to discover her passion of cooking. It made me realize how indirect the path of life is and gave me hope that someday I too will discover my true calling and create a job out of it. For now my mind is an open book. I’m open to new experiences— trying anything and everything. I’m eager to learn more and practice hobbies I already enjoy.
