I'm a little tired.
I'm really tired.
But, we had a fantastic time on Saturday with Appetite for Jackson. I even had fun Sunday with a family get together, JFP Best of Jackson party, and filming for a freelance video project I've got going for Sal and Mookie's.
Since I know y'all are all really interested in Andrew, I'll leave you with a video of Marika and I with the man himself...

Like I said, I've been crazy busy lately, but I'm loving every minute of it. One of the big things I've been working since the beginning of December is this big thing right here:
Appetite for Jackson. It ends with a great event this Saturday from 2-9 p.m. at the Mississippi Museum of Art and it's going to be a fantastic time. More info here.
It all started in December with a little video a friend and I did at work about a pig ear sandwich, which caught the attention of Zimmern, who gave us a call. They wanted to film in Jackson: what weird food could they eat?
From there, it snowballed because of a similar event, PM Soul happening that next Monday.
The rest, they say, is history. We've been working with them for weeks (shooting B-roll last week) and in a few short days, we'll have them filming our event for a new show on the Travel Channel called Appetite for Life. It'll be fun!
So, if you're in the area, please come out for Appetite for Jackson and I hope to see you there!

Hi, my name is Sophie and I've been completely absent.
I'm busy, OK?
Want to know one of the things I've been busy with lately? THIS CAKE:
Yep. This past weekend the boyfriend and I (yes, I have a boyfriend. That's a story for another day) worked on it for SIX HOURS. Oh, sure, we thought it'd be easy, but after the last stroke of icing at 5 p.m., I thought we'd have to have a soft cry for all that time spent.
Needless to say, the boyfriend's nephew loved it!
