I spent the weekend at the World Domination Summit in Portland, Oregon. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical. I didn’t expect my spirit to be revived the way it was. Here are just a few highlights…

The people who spoke, the people I met — they changed everything.

Oh, and the best part? A theater full of over 1,000 people singing “Don’t Stop Believing” and rocking out on air guitars. Now that’s the way to start a conference.

Quinoa Arepas

I used to be the pickiest eater. Ever. When I was young, I ate bread and pasta and milk with occasional other white things tossed in like chicken and alfredo sauce and rice (never cauliflower though). I’ve come a long way since then and I attribute my culinary revelations to my time in New York City. And every time I visit, NYC throws new foods and flavors at me, like quinoa areaps, which¬† I discovered at Smorgasburg and just had to make myself.

The recipe is on The Post Social — head over there to get the details.


And in case you missed it this week, I wrote about my escape to Napa last summer on Joanna’s lovely blog, Simple Blueprint.

I also did a fun little interview over on Theresa’s blog, Inspiration Cooperative, last week. I admit really juicy things in it, like my greatest regret, my idea of perfect happiness, my greatest indulgence, and more! Stop by and leave me a comment there! (I read them all…)


Have a fantastic weekend, friends! I’m heading to Portland for the World Domination Summit and will be back late on Monday, so you might not hear from me until the middle of next week! Peace out until then.
