“Nothing feels better than food for the soul!” she wrote in the caption. The photo has accumulated over 75,000 likes and 1,500-plus comments since it was posted two days ago.

In other Instagram photos, she’s spending time with her niece, reporter Alex Finnie. In one of the photos, they’re both hanging out at LIV Miami. Both women are wearing black tops in the photo. Wendy is wearing her blond hair down and is sporting dark eye makeup with what appears to be nude lipstick. The photo of Alex and Wendy has amassed 28,000 likes and 460-plus comments.

Based on the photos and the caption on Wendy’s recent Instagram photo, it appears that she had a great time in Miami and that she’s enjoying this new era in her life.
