Hello and thanks for reading.
My name is Emily and I’m a twenty-something (closer to 30 than 20…eeek) living in Chicago. I grew up in Minneapolis and my family still lives there. I went to graduate school in Seattle and recently moved to Chicago after graduation.
The purpose of this blog is to be happier. Okay that is vague but hopefully it will become more clear as I write. So as of right now this is a documentation of my quest to be happy. I am starting to realize that it takes work to be happy and yet so much of what makes me happy I can’t control. My hope is that as I write about the small things that make me happy day to day I can make others happy.
There are some things that I know make me happy. I love my family and friends. I love to run (I’ve run three marathons and many half marathons), spin, swim (I try!), random classes at the gym. I read a ton and like just about every book I read. I love to travel and have had the opportunity to learn about cultures first hand. I love food! Nothing makes me happier than a plate ‘o veg. I love to play in the kitchen and I read recipes but rarely follow them. Oh and any nut in any form. Love them too.
I’m happy you are reading
