Hey, I’m Emma! I’m the traveler, amateur Italian, and aspiring foodie behind Teaspoon of Nose. 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!
I created Teaspoon of Nose to inspire busy people like you to 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 travel-obsessed and I’ve never met a dessert I didn’t want. I’m a total adrenaline junkie with a passion for trying new things. No fashion advice here; I walk my dog in sweats and a ponytail every morning, much to the shock of my well-dressed Italian 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 dolce 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!
Want more? Let’s chat! You can find me mostly on Instagram, but I love Pinterest, too.
I also share behind-the-scenes bits of expat life, travel tips, and recipe round-ups with my email list! You’ll also get my top five free travel apps I use all the time by signing up below!
