Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Emily — the girl behind the blog.
I recently graduated from the University of Kansas School of Journalism (and Mass Communications if you want to be specific). Now, I work as an editor and a freelance writer.
Although what I do for a job is a part of me, it certainly doesn’t define me. I’m also a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend. I am a runner and an occasional yogi. I am a vegetarian, a casual cook and a baker.
This blog is a chronicle of all these things and more.
the stories that shape me

Learn more about my summer in Germany.
I write from my perspective, while trying to back up my opinions with facts. I focus my posts on eating well, indulging sensibly and working out enthusiastically. I occasionally write about young marriage, crafts and entertaining on a budget.

Please note that I am an expert in nothing except being a dork. I just like sharing my experiences and helping others learn from my mistakes. Please consult with a doctor or registered dietician for medical questions.
I encourage your comments, whether you agree with me or want to dissent. Just try to use tact!
Feel free to contact me with questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or shoot me a message from my contact page.
