Hiya and thanks for popping by. Allow myself to introduce…myself.
I’m Penny. I live in Chicago (born and raised about 30 miles out) and it is most definitely home. In the fall of 2011 I decided to move to Cleveland, yes on purpose, where I lived for about 14 months until deciding to move back. The lessons were invaluable and the experiences were happenings that I’ll never stop being grateful for, including those that occurred after I returned.
I wish I traveled more. I love love love food and was blessed to have worked in remarkable establishments with a few brilliant chefs that you’ve probably heard of. I paint, draw, doodle, and do freelance graphic design as much as it comes my way. I garden when I have the space. I’m a snob about typography, beer, bacon, cheese, and Doctor Who. I believe that naps are the best reset and contemplation devices. I have sisters and nieces and nephews. I’m an extroverted introvert. I read. I write sometimes. I walk when I’m not riding my scooter or being held captive by Chicago’s transit system. I cook. I’m a sucker for forehead kisses. I throw a mean spiral. I have seven different pairs of red shoes.
