5 Rules I Live By: Rebecca Orchant

Rebecca Orchant is the reason I believe in love.

As someone who once had the same job and college degree as myself, I've always looked at Rebecca as a potential future version of me. Therefore, it excites me each time I see her work published.  But more importantly, I've watched with great admiration her relationship with her now-husband Sean; their wedding last summer in Cape Cod was the highlight of my year.  Never in my life have I ever seen such a perfect couple.  Sure, we all see people who are happy together and are really in love, but when you see these two together, it's abundantly clear that there actually is someone perfect for you out there.  Seeing them together is what made me believe in true love.

In addition to being a sweet girl with great style and funny jokes, Rebecca is a classic foodie.  She runs Chronicles of a Stomach Grumble, which not only makes me hungry every time I read it, but has inspired me to be more creative in how I eat.  It's definitely a site to add to your favorites.  And don't forget to creep her on Twitter.

Rebecca lives in Brooklyn, and works at CNN.
