Well hello! I'm Mary :)
Where to begin? I started writing my first blog, Undergrad Fab, as a sophomore in college in 2008. I wrote because I liked style blogs. I wrote because I liked writing. I wrote because I was lost. I was learning how to dress myself all while learning how to become who I really was. After a solid two-and-some years of blogging about my daily outfits, my semester abroad in London, my life as an undergrad and various other parts of who I am, I graduated from college. Although I'd like to think I was still fab, undergrad was no longer a title I could claim.
So I packed up my little virtual bubble and moved over here to babble + bloom to start the next chapter in my life! I'm a grad student in my lovely hometown of Milwaukee, am a big cheesehead + anglophile + former twin citian (go gophers!). I love my friends + family, my crazy cats + ridiculous dog, my macbook, traveling, knitting, reading, yoga, dancing, cooking, and awkwardly quoting movies. Want to know more? I'm an open book.
Here is where I'll be chronicling my life: there will still be plenty of outfit snapshots, poetry, recipes (I am a paleo girl who eats juuust enough cheese/dairy to keep my fellow wisconsinites from rebelling against me) book reviews and daily life snapshots just as I always have done, but here there will simply be more. More goodness, more silliness, more colorfulness, more of who I am!
And who I am is this: a girl who loves everything about the life she's living, and wants to be a part of something bigger :)
I'm in the middle of accomplishing 24 new things in my 24th year. Want to follow along on my progress? Check it here!
