I’ve been talking about starting a blog for years, and I’ve finally decided to give it a go. This is my place where I can document bits and pieces of my life. I don’t want to be just another person you follow on the Internet, so I hope this allows you to get to know me a little better. I welcome feedback, so please let me know what you think — I’d love to hear from you. Thanks for reading and supporting me on this new adventure!

Christmas, hands down. I love everything about the Christmas season.

Early. One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone’s always late.

I have the biggest sweet tooth, and it changes depending on my cravings. But I really like vegan chocolate coconut fudge ice cream from Clementine’s Naughty and Nice Creamery.
