Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes and can easily go unnoticed as it can exist in the simplest forms. You can express it in your day to day life by the way you arrange flowers at home, a present you give, how you craft an email or through a meal you make for loved ones.
For some, it can also take a few career paths before discovering that an original creative passion can actually turn into a livelihood that ultimately sends them down the road they were always meant to take. Lauren Schaefer, a good friend of mine, is one of these people.
In between her many projects, I was lucky enough to chat with Lauren about discovering her passion for working with food and how she brings creativity to everything she does. We talk about the people who influenced and inspired her along the way, the importance of community and some exciting new projects she has in the works.
