Born and raised in Connecticut and Fairfield County-bred, I have always loved writing. In school, English was my favorite subject and studying it at my in-state college was a no brainer. Creative writing has always been my favorite, memoirs specifically. What I have realized now is that I will have to wait forever until I can write a good memoir, so why not write while I make the memories?
When I first decided to have a blog, I read that you should have a singular focus, a certain niche to write about. When I sat down to think about one thing that I truly love, I was stumped. I love coffee, chocolate, books, cookies, a great workout, spin classes, hot yoga, children, lavender pillow spray, tea, vanilla candles, my family and friends, rom-coms, a good cry, shopping, flea markets…The list could go on forever, I am twenty-four, I find something new to love every single day. I am at a stage in my life where I am learning new things and figuring out what I love most, and for the first time, without the influence of anyone else. What I do know is something my favorite singer taught me, “No, it won’t all go the way it should, but I know the heart of life is good,”- John Mayer. Could I get any more basic? I love John, I don’t care what anyone says. Fun Fact: His hometown is my hometown, and I spent one year at the same middle school that he did. Anyway, my interpretation of this 2006 lyric is that no matter what bumps come on the road, everything is meant to be. Hearts are the more important part of the human body; they have the ability to keep everything going. So finding that thing you love, will keep everything going, just like the heart. This blog will be a collection of memories in the making, experiences, advice, pictures, and moments all leading me to find what the heart of my life really is.
