First is not the worst

Hello, new site! I am super excited about the launch of this new blog. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile so one day a few weeks ago, I was like, “what the heck! let’s just do this thing!” And here we are.

First, introductions. I’m Allyson — a twenty-something (mid-20’s if you want to be more specific…when did that happen?!) living in (the suburbs) of Chicago.

I’ll be upfront — I’m not a writer, a designer, or really anything remotely creative. I am an over-thinker, an avid list writer, a DIY amateur, food lover, family obsessed, soon-to-be bride that likes to make pretty things, explore fun places, .try things I’ve never done before, and write it all down. Let’s see where this takes me.
