Happy 4th of July from New York!

Alright…I’ll post a major recap of my amazingly awesome Fourth of July when I return to Chicago…For now here is a picture of the great American hero of the hot dog, three-peat victor at Nathan’s, Joey Chestnut in action!


p.s. The good thing about competitive eaters is that they do not mind if you throw up in front of them because they are used to vomit. Just sayin’

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
