Today, while my daughter was in preschool, I decided to dive headfirst into the blog I have been wanting to create for about three years now. In a very distant past, I was a blogger. As a biochemistry major in college, my creative soul thirsted for something other than chem equations. Thus, Preppy in Pittsburgh was born.
Of course, I look at that blog now and shake my head. Essentially it is a shrine to my college boyfriend, and incredibly embarrassing, but it served its purpose in my life. It was my outlet, my creative piece of the interweb. It helped me survive college and essentially was retired after that stage of my life.
So, for those of you who followed my old blog, if any of you are still out there; a lot has happened in my life since then. In a nutshell, I grew up. I am now married to the guy who I crushed on at the gym, we have a beautiful daughter named, Lilly (aka Lils) together, we live in the countryside of Western Pennsylvania in a house that desperately needs updates (which I hope to share as we actually follow through on them), and I am mostly a stay at home mom who couldn’t quite give up my personal training job (because my clients are like my other children), and additionally work as a stylist for the up and coming company, Stitch Fix!
Creating my website and relearning HTML has been the challenge of the day. I remember when all of this was a breeze for me. I definitely will be learning as I go, and am not as tech savvy as I once was. But, if there is one thingI have learned with age it is, perseverance, and a little bit of grit!
Welcome to Style Her Strong! I hope my blog inspires you and brightens your day!
