Before I left for Japan I was faced with a whirlwind of freelance projects that kept me working right up until a few hours before I stepped on the plane. I count myself as lucky for having such a schedule.
The product one of these said projects was my latest piece for the Washington Post Express.
Delving into the history and modern day life of daiquiris was not only a tasty, tasty assignment to complete- it was a fun derivation from my usual food pieces.
Much to the woes of my inner travel-bug, I am back home in D.C. I couldn't be more excited to get a jump on the stories and ideas that have been brewing in my brain these last few weeks.
As always, a huge thank you to my editor, Holley Simmons. My life & faith in myself wouldn't be the same without her patience, guidance and care.
