About

It's a bittersweet story...but love always triumphs

In 2007 I moved to Texas to help my bother open a BBQ restaurant, Aunt Jo’s BBQ. I developed most of the recipes that he still uses in his kitchen from the cobblers to the BBQ sauce. I’ve always loved to cook and experiment with new and tasty recipes. I’m a science major but realized that the laboratory just wasn’t for me but the kitchen – well that’s my lab now.

In 2008, my son was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme, a terminal brain cancer. Throughout his faith and courage never wavered during his treatment. As the end drew near, we learned to live our life one moment at a time - sometimes seconds. We talked about the future and the possible outcomes of each other lives. We kept everything on the table and loved each other deeply – we were the best friends.

A mother should never have to discuss, burial arrangements, do-not- resuscitate orders and like with her dying child. But if you knew us together, that's just who we were. We kept it real and through that we developed a relationship like no other.

In 2009, my son lost his battle with cancer and is buried in the family cemetery in Texas. To reclaim my life I moved back to California – back to things that we familiar and to reconnect with my AA family (sober date 7-15-95). Alex died on July 3rd and I drove back to California to get my chip because it was tradition. Ever time I had a birthday; I would always bring him my chip. We recovered together. I’m so thankful there was a place for me to go to get help. Otherwise, I might have never known life’s’ possibilities. Staying sober was his biggest concern for me. July 15th, 2015 I'll celebrate 20 years with Alex in my spirit.

As you can probably imagine, suffering such a great loss can leave one empty and void of passion. I was falling into a depression deeper and deeper day-by-day – what do I do now? Someone suggested that I get a hobby. I tried all sorts of things but remembered that I love to cook – why not do something with cooking.

I started making jams and jellies to raise money for charity. I felt a renewed sense of fulfillment again.

In April of 2011, I was laid-off from my job in marketing. Additionally, my health was failing due to stress and grief. What do I do now? I watched the love of my life walk through the most challenging time in his life – he never gave up or felt sorry for himself. Surely, I could muster up the strength and apply the same principles of hope, courage and faith.

So now I’ve jumped back into my life knowing that no matter what, I’ve already had the worst day of my life and nothing could pale in its comparison. L.A. Farm Girl was born as a result. My son would be so proud of me. In fact, all the love we shared between each other are in my creations. He was and always will be the love of my life and the inspiration of my life.

I see L.A. FARM GIRL with a restaurant that provides home-styled cooking with family inspired recipes much like my brothers restaurant in Texas. If you read my family’s history you’ll see that tradition, hospitality, cooking and perseverance is in my bloodline.

The artwork, photography & design all come from the same place of inspiration. I learned that there is much more inside me and too me than could have ever imagined. Who knew that tragedy could bring such beautiful gifts.

I hope that reading this story inspires you in some way. Never give up - no matter what.
