She traveled the country and the world, rock climbing and paddling from North Carolina to Washington State, to Utah, to Kentucky, to the Florida Everglades, to Peru, to Thailand and beyond, climbing rocks, running rivers, making friends, building community, falling in love, breaking hearts, getting her heart broken, learning, and flailing, and trying to figure out what it all meant...
She learned in the process that A) She truly valued having a close knit community of women with which to connect, share, process, adventure, and grow. B) She liked to eat, and bake, and lick the bowl, and share good food with good friends, and love her body all at the same time
She thought to herself, What better food than cupcakes for "The Fun One" to adore? And so she took on a second nickname..."CrushCakes" and continued on her adventure of playing hard, eating well, and having fun.
