Hello! I’m Allison.

Thank you for visiting my blog! This tiny corner of the world wide web houses my creative finds, tidbits of inspiration and life insights. I hope you’ll stick around to enjoy some of them.

So, you want to know more about me?

Well, I am incurably curious. Ambitious. Tenacious. I believe in infusing all situations with at least a little bit of laughter. I strive for colorful, beautiful days.

New challenges fuel my creative side. I aim to learn something new every day and then share it with the world. I plan obsessively – If I haven’t written at least a dozen different lists in the last several hours, it’s an off day.

A few other things you should know:

  1. I recently moved to Chicago. It was one of best decisions I’ve ever made. I am in love with everything about the Windy City. Even the cold and snow.
  2. I’m married to someone I gush about every so often on my blog. We met when I was 19 and got married 5 years later. Ryan is not perfect, but he is selfless, kind and smart. So he is perfect for me.
  3. I dream big and bold. I truly believe with enough hard work, humility, curiosity and confidence, one can do anything. I set the bar high for myself.
  4. I have a French bulldog. She is the best ever. No kids. (Not yet.) Just a fun, lazy dog.
  5. I work in marketing. Translation: I get to write and think creatively every day. And get paid for it! Happiness.
  6. I run every day. I feel unbalanced if I don’t. And runner’s high is the best feeling in the world.
  7. My support system is made up of an incredible network of family and friends. I will never be able to thank them enough for all they’ve done and continue to do for me. They are my true success stories.
  8. I watch Star Wars once a week. I play with Legos more often than that. Neil deGrasse Tyson is my hero. Stargazing is a priority. #NerdAlert
