“Start at the beginning…”
Where do I begin? I’m 30 years young and basically a homebody. My favorite things include my little one, books, games, writing, bubble baths, makeup, yoga, weird tea, fatty foods, and anything that can be done from the comfort of my couch—just consider me a “Netflix and chill” connoisseur. On the rare occasions that I’m caught outside of my home, I’m usually at the beach, a Broadway show, or walking my two annoyingly adorable French bulldogs, Jersey and Brooklyn—for the record, my husband named them. I would’ve gone with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
On that note, yes, I am happily married to my larger-than-life, crazy/sexy/cool husband. He and I just welcomed our baby girl Sophie Grace into the world in December of 2016. She was the best gift we could’ve ever asked for and we are head over heels in love with her (especially her mama)! I’m sure that many of my trepidations as a new mommy will make for entertaining stories on this blog.
In addition to personal stories and some creative writing, I’m interested in sharing reviews of some of my favorite books, beauty products, and food/drink recipes. Realistically, though, anything goes. My favorite thing (and arguably the most beautiful thing) about writing is that it can start out one way and then take a turn in the most random and unexpected direction. I’m obsessed with Alice in Wonderland, candles, monkeys, puppies, and babies—I am also an avid fan of parentheses (and em dashes). See what I did there?
Those that know me best would say that I am equally introverted and extroverted. How, you might ask? Among people I don’t know, I am painfully awkward and uncomfortably quiet. However, among people I do know, I am acceptably awkward and utterly ridiculous. I adore making my loved ones laugh, even if it’s at my own expense. Nothing brings me greater joy—except maybe a really excellent cheeseburger with a side of disco fries.
