I'm a native San Diegan
living in Nashville, and I now say "y'all" more than "you
guys." I'm a wannabe modern hippie masquerading as a corporate gal during
standard business hours. I spend my days surrounded by people in business casual
attire, my nights as an MBA student, and my life as a wife and mom. In my dreams I'm a Broadway
musical theatre actress. Past temporary homes include NYC, Los Angeles,
Houston, Knoxville, and Memphis -- each with their own stories of life well
My Instagram might as well belong to my daughter. It's hard to post photos of anything other than my own child when nothing else seems to be as precious or funny to me at this stage of life. If you don't like babies, go ahead and skip my Instagram account. I promise I won't be offended. :) I like singing, tea, yoga, animals, green bean casserole, CakeWrecks.com,
musical theatre, baby's breath flowers (and the actual breath of babies), chai
tea lattes, bell kicks, rocking chairs, and Greek salad. My spirit animal is a
mix of Sara Bareilles, Joanna Gaines, and a cat.
About the Blog
I started blogging in 2011 as a way to keep in touch with family and friends
when we moved to Houston. It's been a diary that I've poured words into, and I
love having this space to document life and share it with others. When I
started the blog, I was finding my place in a new city with a new spouse, so
everything seemed to be exciting but foreign. Figuring things out meant doing
new things that were different, fun, and sometimes uncomfortable. It was all
trial by fire. Sapphire is my birthstone, and I have a sapphire wedding ring. And so a blog
name was born.
I'm glad you're here, and I hope you'll stay awhile.
