My name is Alexandra, but my friends call me Ali, and if you’re on this page, powering through this undeniably cringe worthy “about me,” then you are my friend. I’m not sure why I have such a hard time with these intro’s, I’ve never had one I’ve felt good about, so we are gonna roll with this and hope for the best!

My ultimate goal in life is to be happy and fulfilled, and writing is one thing that has always made me feel those very things. I first started this blog as an outlet for my incessant and often irritatingly loud thoughts that seem to consume my ever-busy mind. Being the optimist that I am, I can only hope that it becomes a place where others can feel that same sense of contentment.

I’d like to say that my content will always be exciting and thrilling…but heck, I’m not sure I can promise it will always be interesting. My photography is subpar, (we’re working on it) my life is chaotic; full of absolute nuttery, and I’ve had countless bad hair cuts to which I should probably dedicate a separate blog. Despite this, if I can be sure of anything, it’s that what I write about–whether it be about my favorite books, design, my life, or anything else–will always be honest, I play no games here.

On that note, I hope you enjoy Caffeinated Diaries, and thanks for stopping by.
