where I come from

20 Jan

So I recently started researching my family tree on ya’ll it is SO COOL! So far I’ve only really gotten a chance to research my mom’s side of the family, but I’ve uncovered so many records (seriously, everything from military enlistment to marriage certificates to death records!!) it’s insane. I even found my great grandmother and great grandfather’s passport applications!! Check them out:



My great grandmother was born in France, and lived there until 1919. She moved to Lake Placid, New York and married my great grandfather. I cannot wait to show these to my mom! She’s going to be so excited 🙂 I’m so curious to see what I’m going to uncover next. If you haven’t checked out this website, I definitely suggest you do! It’s so cool learning where (and WHO!) you come from!

2012 & my vow of clamor

18 Jan

Let me start my very first post by saying, I love blogs. I love blogs about food, I love blogs about fashion, I love blogs about travel, you name it–I follow a blog about it. It wasn’t until I subscribed to my eleventy millionth blog that I started wondering if I could do it. I was never one to keep journals or diaries (I was, however, one to buy journals or diaries and never use them.. they look pretty on my bookshelf), but maybe blogging will be different.

So with the new year I have decided to take a vow of clamor. I’m hoping that this vow will make me feel as though I have to write…kinda the way paying for a personal trainer makes me feel like I have to work out. We shall see, sister girls and brother boys.

What are your resolutions??
