Thanks so much for stopping by Caffeinated Diaries; my safe space to talk about everything I’m passionate about. I first started my blog a couple years ago, but took a break to try and “find my niche” and all that blogging jazz. After some intense contemplating, a lot of school work, and too much coffee….okay and cocktails, I came to the realization that I am incapable of finding such a thing, [surely it’s imaginary].
I grew up in a tiny and chilly small town in upstate New York. Equipped with more cows than stores, along with people that always knew you by your parents, it was the typical one light town where not much happens aside from an outrageous school board meeting. Despite the monotony that surrounds such places, it’s where I’ve always called home. My desire to expand my horizons and truly experience something new and [to me] exotic, always clashed with the comfort and security that I had been so fiercely accustomed to.
You’re probably picturing the quintessential small town girl; a cheerleader, volleyball player….homecoming queen. However, I couldn’t have been more unconventional. Due to my intense inelegant nature and desire to plunge into a book or sing in the choir, I always found myself spending time with my mom or Jane Austen. As I got older though, I slowly found my way, and that was through embracing change.
So here I am. Certified in Interior Design, pursuing my degree in English Literature, experimenting with food, drinks and fashion, and generally just winging it. I’m so thankful you’ve taken the time to read about a stranger, and I hope you’ll find something here you enjoy, whether it be the design, food or simply my writing.
For me, I just need an outlet.
