Hiya and thanks for popping by. Allow myself to introduce…myself.
I’m Penny. I live in Columbus, Ohio where I moved, along with my husband and our dog Fred, in May of 2017. Previously, I lived in Chicago (born and raised about 30 miles out) for many, many years. This is not my first stretch in Ohio, as a matter of fact. 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 to Chicago. 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 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 user experience design and graphic design as much as it comes my way. I cook and garden. I’m a snob about typography, beer, bacon, cheese, and 80s music. I believe that naps are the best reset buttons and contemplation devices. I’m an aunt of eight. I’m an extroverted introvert. I read. I write sometimes. I sit in the sun. I wish I traveled more. I’m a sucker for forehead kisses. I throw a mean spiral. I am a lip balm addict.
