frequently asked questions
i was born in kansas city, kansas.
i currently live in seattle, washington. the pacific northwest is home, but i could envision myself (someday) living in california. this girl loves the sunshine!
i enjoy putting together budget-friendly outfits. a large portion of my clothing, shoes, and accessories were purchased second-hand. #secondhandfirst
i commute to work via bus—seattle traffic is no joke!
“who takes your photos?” i work with three local, talented photographers—karya schanilec, sarah wolfe, and elizabeth kathryn. i am fortunate to have become friends with fellow bloggers. on occasion, we get together and shoot photos of one another.
“what is your favorite food?” my favorite food (since childhood) is peas, though ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, and pizza are close seconds.
“do you travel?” a bit! i recently visited kona, hawaii with my family. next up is a weekend trip to lake chelan (a three-hour drive from seattle).
“do you have any pets?” my family has a fifteen-year-old dachshund, bailey! she is often featured on my blog and social media. bailey is a beloved family member, and much of our home decor is dachshund-themed.
“where did your blog name come from?” interestingly, diary of this girl came to me on a whim. i liked the idea of referring to my blog as an online diary. it allows me to write honestly about a variety of subjects—i don’t necessarily feel confined to posting about one topic.
