Pleased to Meet You

I grew up in a small town in very South Jersey. Two funny things about that sentence- I emphasize SOUTH and I capitalize both words, because if you grew up by the beach in Cape May county, you immediately want to erase any stereotypes or connections to the Jersey Shore (thank you MTV) and/or the filth that is outside of New York (sorry North Jersey friends). I'm the oldest of four children, my parents have been married almost 30 years, and they still go to church almost every Sunday. I went to a small liberal arts school where I had the best four years of my life, and I met my best friends and current boyfriend.

I'm in my mid twenties and living in our Nation's Capital. When I was younger, I kept a diary every day for 7 years. I figure this is sort of similar, but I can post pictures much more easily rather than draw pictures of what I wore (not that I ever did that...), and every once in awhile I'll hear from all of you! I'm not concerned about how pretty my blog looks, or how funny I can be, or how many readers and/or comments I get. I appreciate the sweet moments in life, I'm grateful for all of the experience I've had, and I try to find ways to learn and grow from the not so sweet experiences. I would say I'm one of the luckiest girls I know, but I also don't believe in luck so I'll go with blessed.
