I wanted to take a chance to reintroduce myself to everybody who has recently stopped by (thank you!!). Over the past year, this blog has become a space for me to capture greeting cards, party ideas, and life ramblings – and I like to think that I embody the phrase “engineer by day, hostess by night.” If you look at how I eat M&Ms, you’d see why I’m an engineer. If you look at my Prom 21st birthday party, you’d see why I’m a hostess. And if you look at my guide for planning Wine and Cheese events, you’d see why I’m a pretty good combination of the two.
Recently this blog has been slacking on the “hostess” component though, but the good news is that I just bought a
couch futon, so now I can start hosting (small) parties again. But there are plenty of other posts to keep you entertained in the meantime.
Somebody once asked me what my “thing” is in life – and my answer to that is people. I love meeting people, getting to know them, making them happy, introducing them, and learning what makes them tick.
I usually make decisions with my heart instead of my head (I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for some people in the office last week because my heart hurt when I found out that they were working until after 11:00pm again). I also like to talk my way out loud to solutions to problems and conclusions of thoughts (you can ask my roommate about that hot mess).
Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it. I appreciate every visit, every comment, and every share, so now it’s time that I share something with you.
