ALL I WANT 🍝
Bucatini — baby tomatoes — basil — pecorino
The past two years have without doubt been a bundle of excitement and mayhem rolled into one — the best kind of artistic chaos but mayhem none the less. Developing + releasing Cook Beautiful as I simultaneously gut renovated + designed our Brooklyn townhouse along with the expansion of my brand has filled me with so much creative and professional joy but also left me depleted personally — with little time for self care. For ceremony, ritual, eating well... for taking care of my body and mind. Carving out head space to dream, to wander, and laugh seemed to have diminished drastically. I have zero regrets and I tried my best to be gentle with myself throughout the process (not an easy feat) until I made the choice to be human again. That day has arrived. The weight of so many commitments lifted recently and so these last weeks of summer I have committed to reclaiming myself. To take back some time exclusively for me. It’s crazy how the smallest shift in your commitment can have such a massive impact on your state of mind. Meditating and working our daily is my new normal and with that I have decided to cut out alcohol, sugar, and gluten. It’s time for me to feel whole again. And so.... no pasta for me. For now.
