where were you born? i was born in kansas city, kansas.
where do you live? i live in seattle, washington with my husband greg and our one-year-old boston terrier pepper.
how did you meet your husband? greg and i met in 2016 on a dating app. interestingly, we grew up in the same town but our paths never crossed. greg proposed in july 2019, and we were married in march 2020 (just one week before our governor imposed a ban on large gatherings). we feel incredibly blessed that we were able to get married, as planned.
what is your favorite food? my favorite food (since childhood) is peas, though ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, and pizza are close seconds.

how do you meet and spend time with fellow bloggers? when i first started blogging, going to events and potentially meeting bloggers felt intimidating. what if their blog was better? what if they had a larger audience? what would they be like in person? i quickly realized how supportive and welcoming the blogging community can be, particularly in seattle. try your best to calm your nerves and put yourself out there!
how do you curl your hair? i use this curling wand, wrapping small chunks of hair. i typically leave my ends straight (focusing the curl near the roots and mid-section). after letting the curls cool, i brush them out and spray with a medium-hold hairspray. (spoiler alert: my curling wand is less than $15.)
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.
