16 Sep And so it begins!
Welp, it’s a rainy day in Austin, TX and I seem to have gotten a wild hair up my *you know what* and I’ve decided to start a blog. Blogging is something I’ve been considering for some time now. About a year and a half ago I discovered the fantastic-ness of “Mom Blogs”. No I am not a mother, heck, I’m not even married yet, but for some reason I took a shining to all of the witty, intelligent and oh-so-crafty women out there who have the guts to put their thoughts and creations out on the interwebs for everybody to read! And judge (*cringe*). As you can see, I am a little anxious about this whole “sharing my thoughts with the world” thing, so please, be nice. 🙂
A little about me: I am currently 2 weeks + 2 days away from my 25th birthday…and I just moved back in with my parents. I know what you’re probably thinking right now, but it’s not like that, I swear! I am a financially independent advertising professional, who’s bff/roomie decided to up and leave her for grad school in Chicago. I know right, HOW COULD SHE?! This abandonment left me with a few options – get a place of my own (expensive!), find a new roomie (risky!), or move in with my parents (temporarily!) and save boatloads of money. See? Not so crazy.
Two of my all time favorite things are baking & traveling, so I plan to share a combination of the both with you. Because of the whole working 40 hours a week and high cost of international travel thing, it will be mostly baking with some travel here and there. But good news – I’m headed to Ireland in 2 weeks! There will also be some random sprinklings of recipes that do not contain oodles of butter (because yes, I care about your arteries…and my waistline), local Austin restaurant reviews, fashion/shopping, and probably some pictures of my adorable Golden Retriever, Yogi.
If these sound like things you may be interested in then y’all come back now, ya here?!
