Mustard Yellow

I learned

[to do more, less]

from

[my old boss and badass entrepreneur and mom, Amanda Freeman]. Meaning, don’t try to do one thing and be perfect, but do everything you’d want to and not strive for perfection.

Song that best describes me …

“Let it Go” from “Frozen.”

My go-to dish/drink to make when guests are coming in an hour …

can’t go wrong with a good cheese plate and casa dragones tequila!
