About

Welcome to my life.


There are so many things in my life that have made me the person I am.

Born in Minneapolis. Went to school in Iowa (yes, there are a lot of corn fields). Moved back to Minneapolis after college and lived there for about 5 years before moving to New York (the city, island on Manhattan for a year and then out to Brooklyn for the next 4). After that I was back in Minneapolis for just under 2 years. I work in sales and have very mixed feelings about it, but so far so good.

Currently I’m in Chicago, I’m still fairly new to the city but I’ve done a bit of exploring and can’t wait to do more. I live in Logan Square/Humboldt Park. I like my little studio apartment, for now, but I need to be closer to the train lines.

So…what else. I’m pretty damn awesome. My current drink of choice is Hendricks and Tonic, but occasionally I’ll pull a Tito’s and Soda. I’ve been craving pho lately…or pasta, but I got that fix yesterday (fresh pappardelle with cacio de pepe). My favorite burger is currently the 60/40 burger (60% ground beef, 40% bacon) from Red Cow up in Minnesota. I thoroughly enjoyed Beauty & the Beast (I love Emma Watson) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (who doesn’t love Groot). All time favorite drink still is a very well made Old Fashioned (with the real cherries) and I’ll always take some bubbly.

I’m currently am slightly addicted to Social Media (yes, I’m capitalizing it). I’m on Instagram (with 3 accounts…I know, little crazy – travelfoodmy lifeTwitter, Facebook, Snapchat (@rileyjacks), Yelp… I love taking pictures and need to fit more photowalks into my life. I shoot with my Nikon D3000, Olympus Pen EL-6 and my iPhone 7 Plus (I love the Portrait feature, but don’t use it nearly enough).

Anything else you want to know, send it my way or throw a comment on one of my posts. 🙂
