Oh Hey...I'm Emelia

Hi everyone! I've noticed some new faces around this little space of mine, and want to thank you all for stopping by and let you know a little more about me.

While you can read some of the basics on my About Me page and find out what my favorite posts have been, I'm happy to share some more details with you today.

I've been doing this blogging thing since June of 2014 and don't regret a thing. I've already learned some things the hard way, but I have quickly made many friends, developed some great relationships and connections and most importanly I have learned SO much.

I live in Erie, Pa with my fiance Chuck, and my soon to be stepson Ethan. Chuck and I are getting married September 26th after 7 years of dating and I'm glad he finally got wise and put a ring on it. I am a sarcastic person, which should be mentioned after the previous thought.

Things I Love:
Britney Spears
Big Purses
The Color Green
Walking Around Lake Erie
Bloody Mary's
French Fries
Spontaneous Adventures

Things I Can't Deal With:
School Speed Zones
Sleeping With Socks On
My Feet Sweating
Fax Machines
Poorly Loaded Dishwashers

I'm a goofball and a dreamer. I'm very emotional and I love hard. I was born in Erie, but grew up south of Pittsburgh and love ALL things black and gold. I think my taste in music is ecclectic, but my friends and family tell me that I'm pretty much a rap girl. I remember rapping Lil Kim in my bedroom in 8th grade and haven't looked back since. I was so nervous to get my first tattoo, and now a few years later I have four and am ready for two more...yesterday.

I hope this helps you get to know the voice behind the blog a little more.
Now, let me know one thing about you I may not already know.
