Welcome, friends. My name is Valerie, but those who know me call me Val. I started this blog my freshman year of high school, and think it has grown to express a large part of who I am and who I’m continually becoming. I’m a passionate girl with dreams so big they swallow me whole. My family and friends are held close to my heart and I enjoy documenting both the sweet and sour memories of my life. Music makes me feel like I am floating, I have a knack for asking a considerable amount of questions, and I wholeheartedly believe that books tell a story not only through the words on the page. My compassion, ambition, and commitment to purpose have sculpted me into the person I am today. I have many goals that include leaving an impact more effective than being just another piece in society. This blog is a way for me to express myself and hopefully inspire others. Enjoy, and thank you for diving into what makes me, me.

Love, Valerie x
