To My Future Daughter….

“You can’t go back and change the beginning. But you can start where you are and change the ending.” -C.S. Lewis

Ever since I was a little girl, I had a dream of being a writer. I would fill pages and pages of journals with ideas, silly stories, and poems that I wrote just for fun. I LOVED getting writing assignments in school when most kids just groaned. Somewhere along the way, someone told me that writing was maybe not the most profitable career choice. So I believed them and I stopped writing altogether. What I wish I had known back then is that not everything that lights your soul on fire has to add dollar signs to your bank account. I recently tapped into journaling again as an outlet and I came across a writing prompt: “write a letter to the girl that you were when you were 8 years old. What would you tell her?”

This idea for a blog has been swirling around in my head ever since this question fell into my lap: what WOULD I say to the 8 year old version of myself? What lessons have I learned about life and, more importantly, about myself in my 27 years? Even if I could, I wouldn’t go back and change the past. Every stumble and fall along the way has made me into the person that I am. But what if I could share all the things that I’ve learned and am continuing to learn in real time? Should I be blessed with a daughter one day, what would I want her to know?

If you’re reading this, then this blog is for you. I will share my personal stories and experiences in a wide variety of areas, so I’m sure there is a topic here that will interest you. And to my future daughter, I hope that one day you get to read these posts. I hope you will become a fierce, amazing woman because of the things that I share here along my own journey. I hope you live a life that you are proud of and that excites you. And I hope that you remember that you can always change your ending.


Hi, I’m Hannah!

Welcome to my blog. I’m excited to share some tidbits and musings about life with you.

I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC and I am so lucky to still call this place home. I am responsible for running my third generation family business, but I am also very passionate about health and wellness and this blog project. I live with my wonderful boyfriend and our hobbies include sports, traveling, and the occasional Netflix binge.

Why did I start this blog?

Writing has always been a huge focal point in my life. Whatever I was going through, I leaned heavily into journaling about my experiences by hand. As a true introvert, I best communicated my thoughts in written form. 2019 has been a year of growth for me, in almost all aspects of my life. Not only do I want to talk about some of the things I have learned this year, but I am stepping out of my comfort zone by putting them out there publicly. I’m excited to take another step towards growth through this project.

What can you expect?

I intend to post regularly about some topic in “life.” One week, I may talk about what it was like dating as a young 20 something and the next week I may talk about how to run social media in a small business. Everything I share will be from my own perspective and experience and I will document any resources I have used for inspiration.

Thanks for joining me on my journey!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I always welcome feedback on anything you read here. I hope you find this to be interesting, funny, and informative in some way!
