Hey, I’m Emma! I’m the traveler and aspiring foodie behind everything you see here. Whether it’s a day trip to the next town over or a once-in-a-lifetime month in Europe, I’m always dreaming up the next trip!
Teaspoon of Nose exists to inspire busy people like you travel, eat & live the way you want, and to give you tools to actually do it!
Travel should be life-changing and eye-opening, times of learning and trying and connecting. Eating should be the same: an experience rather than a mere necessity, a tangible way to care for yourself and others and soak in more of what this world has to offer.
I want to help you travel more, cook better food, and experience as much of life as you possibly can without breaking the bank or quitting your day job!
Who I am
Here’s what you should know about me: I’m a travel-obsessed Southern girl who never met a dessert she didn’t want. I’m a total adrenaline junkie with a passion for trying new things. I’m no fashionista; I walk my dog in sweats and a ponytail every morning, much to the shock of my well-dressed neighbors.
I’m currently living the expat life as a military spouse in Italy along with my husband and German Shepherd, Wedge! I’m learning the language, local customs, and all around embracing la bella vita!
You can sum me up like this: if I’m not traveling, I’m probably cooking!
What’s with the name Teaspoon of Nose?
Like most toddlers, I played a lot with random kitchen stuff: bowls, measuring cups, anything in the bottom cabinets. My favorite was the measuring spoons, which my dad would hang on my nose. My parents love to tell me that I had a “teaspoon of nose” because that’s the size that fit!
