"Pearls, Plates & Planes," the travel and lifestyle blog of Full Plate Publicity, will house "Forty Before 40" and "Page to Pantry," two new series that will be published on a regular basis.
"Forty Before 40" will highlight travel to 40 states and the best places to eat, where to play, and what to wear while there. It will also explore how locals live, and the cultural and adventurous side of each destination.
The idea was born when Full Plate Publicity Owner and Chief Creative Officer Michelle Blackley Glynn realized almost two decades of work and personal travel had added-up to 40 visited states - just before turning 40 years old in 2018.
"It will be interesting to re-explore these 40 states through photos, journals and recipes - nothing describes a place like its people and what they prepare to eat for their families and friends," Glynn said. "As readers follow along with the series, I hope it encourages them to visit these domestic hot spots and discover their own bucket lists."
With a focus on the culinary appeal of "Forty Before 40," some blog posts may be accompanied by "Page to Pantry," a cookbook review that is relevant to the destination.
Blackley Glynn is a native of Lockport and a resident of Williamsville. She is a graduate of SUNY Fredonia and received a Master of Arts degree from New York University. Blackley Glynn also is a regular NFP correspondent.
