Get to know Emily:
"The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt and "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. I started "The Goldfinch" recently and haven't been able to put it down, it has such an intense story line and it's so well written! "The Alchemist" is a book I've read a thousand times and has personal significance to my fiance and I, so we're trying to choose a passage from the book to read at our wedding.
2. Favorite recipe or restaurant?
In terms of restaurants, the Athenian Room is by far one of my Chicago favorites! Even though I'm a regular there, I love to try out new places. A recent new favorite is Eataly, their food is amazing and tastes like it's straight from Italy.
3. What's your favorite thing about blogging?
I'd say my favorite thing about blogging is the ability to creatively express ideas, thoughts and projects. The blogging world is filled with so many talented people (like you!) who I continually am inspired by every day!
