My name is Loriann and welcome to Thyme for Cocktails!
I love a good strong drink, shopping at the farmers market and creating amazing southwest+ midwest fusion recipes. My family and small tribe of friends are everything to me. We love to live and live to love.
I grew up in the midwest, served my country while living in the South and finally landed in Phoenix. Along the way I was blessed with the most amazing kid. He is officially off on his own adventure now and doing great! I am so proud of him!
I thought the nest was going to stay empty until the perfect (for me) man showed up; in a moment of fate the casa brought us together. Paul is my rock and keeps me anchored. Marriage is much different later in life, we aren’t 22 anymore…
We moved into our first home in a new neighborhood earlier this year where we live with the kid (update~ he’s off at basic training now!) and 2 girl kitties. I blog full-time; creating southwest comfort food and cocktail recipes with locally sourced food. My small tribe is knowledgeable and a huge part of my success.
I have my masters degree in business administration, with a healthy dose of marketing, and blogging has opened a whole new world full of amazing career opportunities. Sleep eludes me most nights and Paul says I work too hard, stressing over the little things. Long walks early in the morning with the Arizona sunrise helps calm my mind.
We are stating a new phase as a newlywed empty nesters and I can’t wait to experience casa life with a twist!
