Follow a small town girl...

I've had so much fun the past year and a half sharing my life with you through this blog. I've shared the joys of a new marriage, the crazy things I've seen in Chicago, and the ways in which I've adjusted to living in a city of millions after growing up in a state with only thousands. I truly appreciate all of you who have continued to support me by becoming followers and sending sweet comments and feedback.

But I think it's time for a change. When I first started this blog, I put in the description, "Follow a small town girl trying to navigate the big city of Chicago. She's unemployed and planning a big, fat Italian wedding, so it should be entertaining."

Then after we got married and I got a part-time job, I figured it was time to change the banner. It became: "Follow a small town girl trying to navigate the big city of Chicago. She's an underemployed newlywed who gets annoyed with large crowds, so it should be entertaining."

As life continues to change and I'm no longer underemployed, I think it's time to update this again. Any suggestions? I'm thinking about, "She's a semi-neurotic smart mouth who gets annoyed with large crowds and is no longer afraid to take the L train by herself." (In daylight hours, of course.) Or "She's a small town girl who can't believe Chicago drivers are so crazy and isn't afraid to yell back at the crazy homeless people yelling at her."

Your thoughts?


  1. "She's a metropolitan beauty queen, who is good people (but still gets annoyed with large crowds). and can now navigate the checker patterned streets of Chicago (including the obnoxious 3-way stops).

    Too much?
