Hands & Modern Romance

who are you?

I'm your future friendly neighborhood wine mom in training. I'm also a self-declared Parks and Recreations super-fan, classic movie buff and frequenter of half-priced bookstores. A Midwesterner by birth and Texan by upbringing, I  have a strange, generic American accent that complements my sense of adventure, love of travel and self-exploration. This blog is an attempt to share my experiences and let people know we're all just figuring this adult thing out together. For more information about myself, and the blog, check out here.
 

WHERE DO YOU LIVE?

I currently spend half of my time with both of my parents (the perks of divorce, I guess?). My dad lives in Panama - the country, not the Florida beach resort town - and my mom lives in the suburbs of Dallas, where I grew up. Before moving back home, I lived in New York City for a year.

 

What makes you qualified to offer life advice?

I'm not claiming to be an expert, but I do think there's power in sharing my experiences - warts and all - to dispel the myth of a perfect, social media sanitized life. My hope is that people can learn from my mistakes (and triumphs) through my writing.

 

HOW MUCH DEBT ARE YOU IN?

I started with $56,000 in credit card and student loan debt. You can read about my experience, and how I got into so much debt, here.

What's a honey butter and why is it delightful?

Honey butter is a gift from the gods. It'll also be your new favorite brunch obsession. Check out the recipe that started it all here.

 

Who takes your photos?

Friend and photographer Emma Banks took the professional shots you see as promotional/branding materials. Any other photos featured on posts are either: my own original content, candid shots taken by friends, or are otherwise clearly attributed.

 

I HAVE A QUESTION HERE THAT'S NOT ANSWERED. HOW DO I GET A HOLD OF YOU?
