Which book do you recommend we add to our summer reading list?
Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook by Alice Waters, which recalls her circuitous journey as a young girl growing up in post-WWII New Jersey to founding the legendary Chez Panisse. It looks at how she was influenced by the local, organic, and sustainable food in Paris, as well as the Free Speech Movement during her time at Berkeley in the 1960s.  

What's in store for you this summer?
Hopefully a road trip up the coast of California to Big Sur—and lots of picnics with loved ones involving peach pie.

Anne Boyer's essay collection, A Handbook of Disappointed Fate

Describe your handwriting:
Messy and often unreadable, yet somehow aesthetically pleasing (in my opinion). Very loopy and femme.

Where do you feel the most at home? 
Collecting shells with my parents on the beach in Florida.

Describe your handwriting: 
It’s very tiny, with a cursive flare to it.

What's in store for you this summer? 
This is the summer I've been waiting for: I'll be graduated and ready to start the next chapter of my life! And I'm so excited to have more time to focus on creating resin jewelry pieces to share with the world. ★
