Here’s a little bit of what you’ll find ’round these here parts.
Food currently gets top billing here on Bad Sentences. I just can’t stay away from the DC dining scene, and food is a top priority when I travel as well. I write full restaurant reviews along with foodie anecdotes and food industry news that gets me really excited.
I’m an adventurous eater and will try anything at least once, probably twice. My opinions will always be honest and straight forward (though I try to offer constructive criticism as opposed to snark) and won’t recommend a place I don’t truly enjoy. I’m also generally a budget-conscious diner and often include information about value compared to quality at restaurants I visit. As much as I love a luxurious dinner, I truly believe a meal does not have to max out your credit card in order to be delicious.
I encourage food discussion on Bad Sentences and love it when readers chime in with supporting or differing takes on my reviews. And I’m always happy to make a restaurant recommendation – just shoot me an email.
I’m far from an expert traveler, and I don’t have nearly enough trips under my belt to call myself a travel writer, but I like to learn as I go. I was born in a very small town in Oklahoma, but for some reason I have always been drawn to see the rest of the world. Whether it be an international sojourn or a day trip to a new town nearby, I spend countless hours daydreaming about past trips and planning future ones.
One of the main reasons I was compelled to move to the East Coast was the easy access to a plethora of locations within a day’s drive or so, and international travel is easier as well.
On a deeper level, travel is a writer’s best friend. The best research is done in person. I hope to get out there and do more of it as often as possible.
I love exploring new vineyards and wineries, tasting new wines, talking about wine and reading about wine. I write about my favorite wineries, wine experiences and other fun tidbits. Wine makes for lots of good tidbits.
Aside from food, wine and travel I also spend a decent bit of time writing about day-to-day life and all the fun DC adventures I get up to with my husband and blog partner-in-crime, Tom, and our adorable dog Ashton. I always enjoy learning more about the people behind the blogs and websites I read and hope you will too.
