|Introduction||a nyc writer and performer with a clear complexion and bad feet. shares her name with a bottle of bordeaux characterized as “opulent and rich with a multidimensional bouquet of ripe black currants, spicy vanilla oakiness and violets.” born a michigander, schooled in mississippi, settled in manhattan, she loves baking, blogging, + bikram. the only girl in a family of four boys who taught her how to throw a football - hard. raised on caramel apples, cheese grits, and al dente broccoli. she’s eaten too little, she’s eaten too much, she’s weighed too little, she’s weighed too much, she’s been too little, she’s been too much. interested in exploring and challenging the culturally accepted standards of too *anything* and encouraging others to do the same. she is one woman in search of the perfect fit. whatever the hell that is. this blog and her one-woman show of the same name - www.sizeate.com - are expressions of this exploration. take a bite.|
