my name is rita aka ritabakez around the interwebs.
born in las vegas, nv i am the youngest of 3 siblings and the only kiddo in our family to be born in our homeland (well one of our homelands).
raised by a filipina mama & a bay area hippie for a father i spent my childhood traveling to different countries seeing, hearing and tasting as much as i could along the way. i learned food was a language that spoke when words could not, that curiosity with kindness was always the best approach towards new cultures and how sharing a laugh can turn strangers into friends.
a space where i can flex my creative muscles and have fun exploring my love for food, passion for art as well as all the fun crazy bits n' pieces of my brain. here an extra slice of cake is totally okay (that third cup of coffee is cool too) psh - I'm not telling, are you? this is a place to be a little brave by challenging myself to actually tackle all of the things on my to-do lists. most importantly, the opportunity to preserve memories of what makes my heart happy.
to be honest? really this is my place to figure "IT" all out. of course mistakes will happen, a teensy panic attack here or there, probably tears too but some of the good kind hopefully. ok let's calm down. i sincerely believe there is no need to freak out.. its just LIFE, let's try to be classy about it.
learning how to create an inspired, productive & lovely life one day at a time.
because why should it be anything less?
