Gabi started writing six years ago, but launched an entirely new blog (By Gabriella) last summer. She always enjoyed playing hostess, and when she realized that others were a little hesitant to entertain at home, she realized she could share some of her favorite tips to ease the stress, like how to build an easy cheese board, or make a simple (yet impressive!) cocktail.
During her time away from the computer, she also serves as a volunteer advisor with the Sigma Kappa Sorority and as a City Manager of the women's networking group, BOS Lady Project.
I'd have to say the weirdest (for me) was trying a chicken heart in Brazil. It's a delicacy there, and I'm up for trying almost anything - so I went for it! To be honest, it takes like....chicken.....but a smidge chewier. Not necessarily my cup of tea, but I'm glad I gave it a go. They say you only live once, right?

pizza! I could eat it endlessly.
fly because traveling would be so affordable and accessible!
Oh my, so many to choose from! Mexican is my favorite kind of food, so I'd have to say one of my favorites is the Lime Chicken Tacos with Tomatillo Salsa. And for cocktails? The Grapefruit Bourbon Cocktail with Basil Syrup is my favorite cocktail yet. Ready for dessert? Try the adorable Grand Marnier Truffles!
Push yourself, and know your limits. Put yourself into situations that make you a little nervous, but not uncomfortable. Say yes whenever you can, and know when to say no. Take on as many projects as you can to gain experience, without burning out. It's important to challenge yourself when starting something new!
