Eternal optimist. Believer in welcoming each day with too much coffee and toasting it goodbye with a glass of red wine filled a little bit too high. ___________________________ After doing as they all say by following my own heart, I spent a solid portion of my college years naively in search of something, that in the end, would only bring me back to where it all started... Sweet Home Chicagooooo! For the past 8 years, I have found myself in the trenches of adventures and mistakes, experiencing the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I have finally learned to not only accept, but love the process...No one really knows what they're doing. I have never been less certain about my future, and yet, there are the little moments day in and day out, that remind me it.will.be.okay. This blog is a chronicle of my decision to live with intention and heart - an attempt to document these amazing, important, in-between moments that account this bittersweet time of becoming.
