Feelin' Proud...

Its no secret I love to chef it up for the The Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust. I hung around in enough of these stunning kitchens this year to end up in a photo spread in their quarterly publication! I have loved all the crazy cooking opportunities this organization has afforded me, but I have always had another FLW inspired goal.
Over the past 2 weeks I have been working toward my longtime goal of becoming an interpreter (aka tour guide) at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. The process was actually pretty intense; my class met frequently and there was plenty of out-of class work and studying to be done. In fact we tackled an amount of material equivalent to a masters level class in architecture in a relatively short period of time. On top of that we had to write our own 60 minute tour of this historic and complex property and deliver it on a mock tour for veteran guides. It was a high-pressure gig especially since there is so much glorious information to share about the home and studio that it becomes hard to edit content. I am proud to say I rose to the occasion and passed my test on the first try! I took a selfie after my accomplishment. It think it is so important to do things to make yourself prous and this was a big one for me!
I start giving public tours next week!
