My favorite place to eat in Homewood is Shiki! We order a combination of Opor Ayam, Massaman Chicken, and a hangover roll to share around the table. They won the People’s Choice Award at Taste of Homewood last month!

My favorite place to grab a cocktail is Soho Standard at Happy Hour, which is from 4-to-6 p.m. every day! I usually order a boulevardier and a few of their tasty appetizers. They also serve Daughters Baking cakes for dessert, which are divine!



My favorite Homewood pastime is antiquing! We have so many neat stores within walking distance of each other, so it’s fun to spend a pretty afternoon hopping in and out of these stores. You never know what you might find!

My favorite holiday celebration is The Downtown Open House and Christmas Parade! The camaraderie and festivities on 18th street always get me excited for the upcoming Christmas season. I also love the witch’s ride. I live on Manhattan, so it’s a lot of fun to sit in the yard and watch the witches parade.

I love all the fitness options! I recently did a Homewood fitness spotlight on the chamber’s Instagram, where I tested out different fitness options around Homewood including Three15, PureBarre, and Battle Republic. They were all so unique and fun in their own ways. I feel so fortunate to have so many choices within walking distance of where I live.

I love shopping! I love to pop into Seibel’s for a unique gift because they always have my favorite bloody mary mix and some neat leather goods (like a Bible cover) that would make great keepsake gifts. We also always get a Christmas ornament there every year! Sometimes I just like to go and admire their hanging day beds!
