About Me

This blog is a place to keep my little ramblings, things that make my heart happy, and documents of this season of my life, all written as a letter right to you.


The title is very telling: I've got "Some Things to Write Home About", so I will write them, like a letter right to you, reader! When you read my posts, think of it with your name at the beginning. Dear _______, *blog text* ....then there will be something along the lines of "Much love, Emily" and a silly webcam picture of me, so you know what I looked like, what I was doing, or where I was sitting while blogging. Or if my post has no other pictures... this will keep all you visual-minded people from falling asleep, yes? This last year, you have most frequently seen me sitting at my desk in my dorm, with a big ol' tie dye wall hanging behind me. 
Like this:


This summer, you will see me in my room at home in NH, or sitting somewhere around town sipping iced tea. In August, September, and most of October, you could find me a number of places- in an airport, in my dorm in Athens, in a hostel in Turkey, or who knows where! 

You get the point. So, stuff about me.
