Hello and welcome!
I’m Denise, a recent Illinois State University and Alpha Delta Pi alumnae. I was born and raised in Chicago and its suburbs (although my sports loyalties lie with New York) but have aspirations to live in, or at least visit, all corners of the world. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to a lot of interesting places- three continents, twenty-three counties, and more to come. While I love travelling, creating things is my passion: crafts, baked goods, painting, pretty much anything you can think of!
My wonderful boyfriend, Brendan is my inspiration for all things baking; not surprisingly I have conditioned him to anticipate baked goods every time I see him. I’ve attempted to craft for him, but boys aren’t very fun to make sparkly things for. That’s where my sorority sisters and wild friends come in.
I’ve been so fortunate to learn in my four years of college that some friends become your family, and even though I don’t live in the same college town with everyone I know anymore, that there are still the people who will always be there for you no matter what. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of people to call upon no matter what life hands me!
And of course, my family is my rock. Though we are not high in numbers, my parents and I have fun adventures and always have a good time.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
