About Me

Hello, internet traveler!

My name is Gem and I’m a Christian twentysomething who loves to cook, write, and explore. As much as I love to travel around the world, I live for the small adventures. I’m a Connecticut-based blogger, so day trips are the way to go for me!

I’m that weirdo friend who loves to go to the grocery store, dances in the kitchen while I’m cooking, habitually goes to Goodwill once a week and talks about “that recipe I found on Pinterest.” If you don’t have that friend, it’s probably you. But don’t worry, you’re in good company. 🙂

Food Drinks Life is an extension of me. I want to talk to you about food. I want to share my food adventures with you. I want to talk drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. But most importantly, I want to talk to you about life. I want to ask you questions and have a conversation with you. Above all else, I am a human. I make mistakes, I’ve dealt with hardship and I’ve seen a thing or two. And if you take nothing else from my blog, I want this place to be a reminder that you are not alone. I love to write and through my writing, I want to create a community where people feel welcome.

Sound like a place you would like to join? Be sure to leave your email so we can stay in touch. Also, for updates and behind the scene-type goodies, be sure to find me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter!

Want to learn more about me? I’m flattered! For more info about me, read my Liebster Award post.

Cheers dears!
