the beginning

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is ella yvonne. I am a 22 year old recent college graduate from Madison, Wisconsin starting a big girl job in the Chicago area. This year, I finally decided to sit down and make my goal of starting a blog a reality. I have always wanted to start a blog because I have always loved writing - whether that be in a journal for myself or in a letter for a loved one in my life. I find it to be one of the best ways to talk myself out of a tough situation, document my happiest moments, and to connect with friends and family.


I know that starting a new job in a new place will be a tough, yet exciting, transition and I wanted to start this blog so that I could not only document the ups and downs but also share those moments with people out in the world who might be going through the same experiences. I know that reading posts from other bloggers about situations that I am going through has made life easier for me because I know that I'm not alone. More than anything, however, I want to create a space that inspires me! 

I know it will take time and dedication, but it's a commitment I think I'm finally ready to take on. With my trusty (and never ending) to-do-list now full of blog thoughts, dreams, and wishes, I am incredibly excited for what is to come. I hope that with this blog I can share my experiences in a way that entertains and connects with people all over the world who share my addiction to coffee, obsession with food, and overall awkwardness.

Thanks for reading,

love, ella
