Food and travel – and especially in combination – have always been a huge part of my life. From the time I was pretty young, I have had a serious travel bug. I’m thankful that my parents were game for exploring with young kids and were also supportive of my wanderlust when I got a little older and headed off for exotic new places. Over time, my travel has slowed a little as life has been filled with young kids and busy jobs, but I still love to get away and experience new places and cultures as often as I can. Recently, Lane and I had the great opportunity to head to Ojai, California for a work conference and man, did we love it. We were able to spend four days in Ojai where we experienced tons of great food and explored a new to us region that I will definitely be heading back to soon.
