10 Things You Don’t Know About Me

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so in this case I am saving you about 40,000 words about our wedding with pictures instead 🙂 Domenick and I got married in Chicago at the St. James Chapel where I attended mass frequently while I was still a student at Loyola and lived downtown. […]

The Story of Us | Part VIII

I last left off when I had moved to Kenosha and was really starting to find my groove there- I started my teaching job, had a cute apartment, and spent so much quality time getting to know Domenick more deeply in the context of our relationship. It became more and more apparent to me that […]

The Story of Us | Part V

Ahh, graduation. The sweet feeling of freedom mixed simultaneously with uh-oh-what-now. I graduated with a BS in Secondary Education, a BA in English, and a minor in Studio Art (I definitely made the most of my four years of credits!). And for any NCAA basketball fans, I’m sure you know who Sr. Jean is as […]

The Story of Us | Part IV

I sat down to write my goal list for 2019 last week, just a few days after the new year started. I hadn’t really premeditated any of my goals, but I found that just by carving out 30 minutes of quiet to think, quite a few came to mind. The one that intrigued me the […]

What Marie Kondo and My “Why” Have in Common

Once we made our way back to the United States, it was back to life as we knew it. Domenick and I started our junior years of college and continued to sporadically stay in touch every now and then. I was thrown into my core classes for student teaching and moved into a house with […]

The Story of Us | Part III

Since our lackluster first meeting, months passed and Domenick and I continued to grow our friendship. He was in my philosophy class so I made a habit of keeping him near when a paper was due (he was a philosophy major and this philosophy class was HARD!). We went on a small group trip to […]
