It's our pleasure to introduce you to Emily, of @whiskandwhittle, today! If you've ever found yourself doubting how swoon-worthy a flower made of icing could be, we whole heartedly invite you to visit her Instagram page.
She first met Pam in a very funny you-had-to-be-there situation involving a ukulele—they ended up working together at American Rag and the rest is history. Emily now lives in Arkansas with her family, including the most adorable babies, Arlo and Jasper.
Read her interview below!
Sheltered Co. : What did you want to be when you grew up?
Emily : I think I always kind of knew I knew I wanted to be a chef or a baker. And also a baseball player. Please know that I am not an athletic person, but A League of Their Own was really impactful.
Sheltered Co. : Do you have a favorite junk food?
Emily : Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips
Sheltered Co. : Were there any "I would never!"s before having kiddos that you totally have given into now as a parent?
Emily : Crocs. We are now a pro-Crocs family.
Sheltered Co. : Is there any part of your routine that you consider sacred or unmissable when it comes to your self care?
Emily : Sunscreen every day no matter what!
Sheltered Co. : What was the least helpful parenting advice you ever received and what advice do you wish someone would have given you before having children?
Emily : Anything absolute. (never co-sleep, no screen time ever, only breastfeed etc.) I think I felt a lot of pressure from that kind of advice. Contrary to that is the advice that I’m sure I was given but I wish I had really heard; the importance of being flexible and adaptable.
Sheltered Co. : What's something (anything!) you'd like to share about your personal experience with motherhood?
Emily : Every day since becoming a mother is hard and exhausting and beautiful and filled with so much love. And snacks. So many snacks.
Emily can be found on Instagram at @whiskandwhittle! I, for one, am committed to putting flowers on every single bake that comes out of my oven from now on after doing a scroll of her feed. Thank you, Emily!!
