My name is Milla Williams and welcome to Happily Eating, a blog where I share my love of food and travel. Growing up in South Florida, food was a major part of my life. Amongst the sunshine and beautiful weather there is a diverse food community that I had an opportunity to explore at an early age.
In 2006, I moved to Atlanta to further my career in the hospitality industry, working as a hotel manager. My job afforded me the ability to travel even more and of course enjoy the food in cities I was in. After attending culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in 2009, I started a blog with hopes of sharing my recipes and what I was learning. Unfortunately, I was not able to complete culinary school, but the idea of sharing my love of food with others never went away.
In 2013, after posting picture after picture on Instagram of the food I was making, I picked up my blog again, changed the name and Happily Eating was born.
Over the past few years, it has become very important for me to eat well, travel often and be happy. Happily Eating gives me the opportunity to share my growth and experiences through food and travel with my readers with hopes of inspiring them to do the same.
Traveling since she was little girl, Milla Williams originally from Miami, FL, has always had a love for food and travel. After working in the hospitality industry for over 10 years’ Milla started her blog Happily Eating in 2013. Because of her work in hospitality, she was afforded opportunities to travel and she believes the best way to truly experience a city or culture is through its food. Milla has worked with top brands such as POM Wonderful, Sprouts Farmers Market, Li Destri Spirits, Mazda, Kia, Le Meridien Hotel, Loews Hotel and many more. Her work has also been published on YP (formally known as YellowPages), LoveRice.org and Hospitality 21.
In early 2016, after having several of her articles published with Hospitality21, she was asked to join the team as the Culinary Editor. She was also named one of Sheen Magazines “Top 50 Bloggers” in 2016. Milla hopes that Happily Eating will continue to inspire others to explore the world one plate at a time.
Currently, you can find her in Atlanta, GA where she explores the local food scene, sharing with her readers her favorite eats.
