A Re-Introduction

Maybe it's all the snow and cold weather we've had here lately or maybe it's the winter blues but I have been lacking serious motivation lately when it comes to le blog. There have been so many nights I sit down to write a post for the next day and can't get my mind to settle on a topic of interest and therefore give up and choose to not post. I apologize it's been a bit of a bore around here but with another snow day at home today, I plan to do some serious blog planning and hopefully will be back to things by next week! 

A few week's ago one of my long time favorite bloggers, Natasha over at Hello Happiness posted this fun meet and greet. I thought it would be a fun way to reintroduce myself to readers, as well give others a chance to know a bit more. I love finding more about other bloggers, it's how I connect with them and  am able to establish "blog friendships." Since starting this blog I have had the privilege of getting to know so many amazing women in person and via email, here's to hoping for many more! 

I am mid 20's gal originally from Annapolis that just relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina. It's crazy to think of how many cities I have lived in such a short period of time but the list is as follows- Charlotte, NC for post college internship, Richmond for my my first job, and now Raleigh. I couldn't be happier to be back in the south and have loved living in Raleigh so far. I attended East Carolina University and couldn't be prouder to be a Pirate, come football season you'll get a sense of my enthusiasm. I currently work at nationally ranked hospital in the Triangle area as a Child Life Specialist, specifically with pediatric cardiac patients. Working with children in the hospital is the most rewarding job I could have asked for and I am truly blessed to be given the opportunity to work with such amazing patients and their families. I'm pretty laid back and easy going, while I do love to plan and can be a little crazy about my planner, I can also be pretty spur of the moment and spontaneous. I love hanging out with friends, enjoying live music, and am most happy when cooking in the kitchen with a glass of wine, listening to Frank Sinatra.
