Coconut Bread

Coconut Bread

I had a friend email me over the weekend to ask for this recipe I gave her about 10 years ago. As I typed it out I realized it belongs on this here blog. Growing up, my mom used to make tons of various quick bread to give as gifts in little loafs wrapped neatly in plastic and tied with her signature perfectly curled ribbon. Often it was poppyseed or zucchini. This went on a little tray with an assortment of her other holiday confections (and there were tons of holiday confections at our house. I considered selling her glass candy at school it was so popular among my friends). If you want to knock somebody's socks off (assuming they love coconut), then give this coconut version a try. A friend shared this recipe with her during my college years, and she passed it onto me. It is awesome and a cinch to make. It's fantastic smeared with cream cheese, butter, or best yet...Nutella. Oh yeah.

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
