A {Re}Introduction of Sorts


As I am currently trying to work myself out of a severe blogging drought, a reintroduction post seems not only fitting, but easy.

Just keeping it real.


name // Hi. My name is Maggie.

what you should know about me // I am thankful to be a Southerner, but prefer cold weather over hot.  Fall and Christmas are synonymous with happiness for me, but try my hardest to not rush either. My feelings towards Taylor Swift crossed over the "this is not normal" line a loooong time ago.  I often say reality has no place in my world and that I prefer dogs over people...I can neither confirm nor deny these are resoundingly true most days.  I blame my mother for my obsession to collect Christmas items, coffee mugs and candles.

loves of life // Above all else, Jesus. My husband. Our dogs. Our friends & family. My nephew.

home // Charlotte is where our roots are, but in my heart it's Nashville.  Remember the reality not having a place in my world...

dream job // Ideally, a guitar playing sportswriter.  Wish me luck.

other half // My sweet husband, Andrew, holds my heart fully and completely.  We said "I do" over six years ago and I still have moments where I have to blink and remind myself this is my life.  It's not always sweet, but it's always real and it's ours.

favorite food // I love groups of food...Mexican, all pumpkin flavored things, really good pizza, breakfast food. You get the point.

books // This is above and beyond the hardest thing for me to put into concise sentences. Ever. Books are my escape from the "real world." Also, I am a preteen when it comes to some of my favorites; The Divergent series, Harry Potter, Hunger Game series, etc. The way I see it, life is serious enough.

favorite quote // To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death...Be brave, and you'll have the time of your life. - Taylor Swift

why I blog // When I started blogging, I really wasn't sure where it would take me, if anywhere, and so I really didn't have a direction.  For awhile, I focused too much on comments, number of followers, etc.  I have finally realized, and have stated many times in various posts, this blog is for me. I have never had a sponsored post, probably never will and that's okay.  I don't do outfit posts (y'all really don't want to look to me for fashion tips) or show of Pinterest worthy decor/recipes. What I do do is ramble, make grammatical errors and post a lot of pictures, and I must say, I do it very well.


So, that's me...tell me about you! It's easy to get wrapped up in reading someone's words and forgetting there is a person on the other side of the screen, and truly, "meeting" people is easily one of the best parts of blogging.

I totally agree with you on not worrying about numbers and sponsor posts. Don’t get me wrong I have paid for a few sponsor posts to be able to meet some more amazing bloggers, but what I write about and post is who I am. I don’t want to try and make my blog look like everyone else’s. I want it to be me and the adventrues my husband and I share starting our lives out and remembering those times.
