Lately I have been asked quite a bit, "Why go back to Texas?" I have so many answers for this. But I think only a few will do.
Austin has become a home to my heart and my soul. I went through a lot of pain there and I went through so much healing there as well. I found myself in this healing and again even more so after diving deeper into my passions of baking and talking about everything I can, related to health. I would never compare my pain to anyone else's, however I would never wish anyone go through the losses that I went through over the last 18 months. Grieving is a terrible, messy process that you come out of beautiful if you harness its energy towards productivity.
Austin captured my soul because it is such a beautiful place full of beautiful people. A few in particular, hold pieces of me no matter where I may be. I remember the lines of their smiles, the pitch of their laughter, and the late night conversations about the universe, life and, love; among other things, such as food of course. Oh yes! And one person in particular, their eyes.... well, they have been the only pair in existence so far to see my soul, watch me grow and help me grow into who I am today. I am so grateful of them, all, but everyone in my life has given me something. Lessons in the end that I continue to enjoy, some of those lessons, day in and day out.
Fireflies! The first time I saw a firefly it was as if I were dreaming. Growing up in the northwest, Boise, ID in particular.... you don't get to see those. It's much like Southerners not knowing what a huckleberry is. They just don't exist! These adorably magical insects are my favorite thing in this world next to a cuddly dog. Their chemistry is fascinating, how they create their own bio-luminescence to attract a mate or fend off predators. They are just one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen and I enjoy them probably far more than one should.
So, Warrior Eats is going to start it's mobile truck in Austin, TX before we make our way to San Francisco. Because comfort, which doesn't stifle, is vital to creating a stress-free environment where you can think and be free to create what your passions are. Mine is food, and food made with natural ingredients and packed full of flavor! The fun part of being a nomad is that when I do start to feel the itch I just pick up and bring my passion with me to another place for a bit, but I will always go back to Austin. Austin is home because it helps me grow, so that I can help you grow too.
With Love and Respect,
