Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Alyssa or Aly. I was born and raised in the small Midwestern town just north of Ann Arbor, MI. I made my dreams come true and moved to Raleigh, NC in late January of 2018. I had no job, knew no one, and had very late notice.

I am here to document my journey in hopes of benefiting at least one person. I think self-reflection and seeing how far one has come can be extremely therapeutic. I hope you’ll follow along with me!
