A little Q & A:

Who am I?
A twenty-something girly girl who loves to learn and see how that knowledge can be applied to both work and play.

Where do I live?
Total suburbia, a bunch of miles west of the beautiful Chicago.

What did I study in college/what am I doing with my life?
I majored in English and minored in Secondary Education.
Currently, I teach 9th grade English classes and also keep up with my other hobbies and passions.
I know this for sure: I love writing…blogging…fashion… and education…

Do I have any children?
I have a beautiful and intelligent daughter named Alena.
She’s going to be a 6th grader in the fall… And yes, I was/am a young mom!

Am I single, dating, married?
DATING… a really sweet, and very tall, guy named David ♥
My boyfriend is the best and he takes most of my blog photos!

What do I do for fun?
I’m a total girly girl.
I love getting dolled up, shopping, getting my nails done, spa trips, going out for breakfast (especially with my daughter)!
I also love going out with family or friends to movies, dinners and to Chicago for city nights!
I keep active, and I feel like there is pretty much always something going on…
When I have “me time” I love relaxing with a glass of moscato and watching a movie, or reading a great book (see what I’m currently reading on Goodreads)!

Other random things about me…
I love:

– my family
– my boyfriend
– my amazing friends
– fall & summer
– meaningful conversation
– cupcakes & crème brûlée
– dresses

high heels & skinny jeans

– & I’m sure you’ll learn plenty more!
