While I don't anticipate ever becoming a blogger extraordinaire, I have quite a bit of blogging expertise thanks to my work for Oh So Beautiful Paper, Marigold & Grey, The Good Beginning, and Sage Innovations. I love to share my thoughts, format those ramblings with carefully curated images, and share them with the world!

(If you are in need of following an actual blogger extraordinaire I would recommend Gal Meets Glam, Somewhere Devine, and The Londoner, and of course the aforementioned blogs I've contributed to!)
