I have big and exciting news to share with you today;

1. We’re moving to the Bay Area.
2. We got engaged! I can’t believe, I get to marry my best friend and now we are on our way to start and share an exciting new chapter in our lives! We’ve known each other for six years, been through the ups and downs that life has to offer, laughed, argued, and cried together, traveled to places, and once narrowly escaped a bear on a hike. Yep, the usual things that all couples do, but above all we’re happy and home is where the two of us are together.
3. Finally, I am also super excited to have my first post up at Food52 today where I talk about my love for this bright green chutney aka the Green Goddess, with so many fresh and bright flavors, it will surely brighten up your day. So head over to Food52 to get the recipe.
