On the eleventh day of Blogmas, Leeann’s blog gave to me…Christmas Eve traditions

(Quick disclaimer: I’m messing around with this blog until I settle on a topic I really love, so bare with me as I change things up!)

Books, food, writing: these are a few of my favorite things. Especially that writing one, which is why I’m here!

Here I’ll talk about college (which I originally was going to make the entire focus of the blog), write book reviews, give snippets from my life, show pictures of delicious food, update you on my running and how I exercise, and then just a sprinkle of anything else I love (i.e., makeup, clothes, piano, traveling). So stick around for awhile and enjoy the view- I can’t wait to see where this blog takes us!
