About About
Hi there. I'm glad you’re visiting.

Shudi is about being grounded, true grace and honesty. I love what exudes from that.
For me, that inner stability, peace and joy does manifest into how I cook, how I look at life, and how I see the world when I travel in it.

I'm about nourishing beyond the superficial and reaching above the mundane.
I'd love to inspire you to do the same as I share travel stories, thoughts and recipes.

Aside from that, I'm a mom, author and corporate flight attendant whose lifestyle actively includes meditation, entertaining, camping, baking, cooking and lots of humor.

Thanks for being here.
