I'm a Louisiana native now living in DC with my husband and sons. By day, I'm a stay-at-home mom, blogger, canning and preservation instructor, and caterer. By night, well, more of the same! I love to write, learn, travel, garden, cook, read and be with my family. I started my blog, Em-i-lis: musings from a servantless, stay-at-home, cooking-obsessed mom, in 2011 and write about food, motherhood, politics and life. It's been great fun.
