Hi, Nice to Meet You

Starting a blog has been a dream of mine for years, even creating one for an incredible 3 whole days this past June.  To be honest, it has been a dream that I continually avoided because I was scared of what other people would think.

Would people laugh at me?  Would people think it was stupid?  Was I good enough?

Questions like these held me back from pursuing something that I knew I would enjoy.  I am finally at a stage of my life where I am able to overlook those fears.  It took me a long time to get to this point but I am incredibly grateful to be surrounded by supportive family and friends who make me want to be the happiest version of myself.  Creating this blog gives me the opportunity to follow my dream and hopefully inspire some other people to follow their dreams as well, whatever they might be.

A little about me…. My name is Lydia and I am 19 years old. I am originally from Michigan but I attend college at DePaul University in Chicago.  I have a cat named Cleo who is the love of my life and my guilty pleasure is listening to movie/musical soundtracks on repeat.  While I intend to talk more about these things through the blog, I love traveling, cooking, baking, photography, exploring, and spending time with my family and friends.

I am extremely excited to start posting on this blog and to get to share part of my life with you.  Whether it be travel, photography, recipes, or just a conversation about life, this blog will be a place to talk about things that I enjoy.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this introduction post and I look forward to posting more content soon.







  1. I am glad to see that you are pursuing your passion Lydia! I think we have a lot in common with our musical soundtracks on repeat. I just can’t get past the genious of the Hamilton soundtrack.

  2. The same reasons stopped me from blogging for a year before I plucked up the courage. Welcome to the blogging community. I am still relatively new, but everyone I have met is so supportive and helpful. I look forward to reading your content! X
