Hello everyone and welcome to my world!
So who am I? That has always been an incredibly hard question for me to answer. I am Alex and I am a “twenty-something” former military spouse, back in California after spending the last 3 years in Hawaii. I am a native Southern California girl, born and raised in San Gabriel Valley. I am a SoCal girl all the way through. I graduated from Mt. San Antonio College with my AA in Liberal Arts – Humanities and Cal State Fullerton with my BA in Communications – Entertainment and Tourism Studies.
I am a needy spouse (at times), a stubborn daughter, a loving aunt and a loyal friend. I am a writer, photographer, creator, and overall dreamer. I live with my head in the clouds most days and although I have more than my share of personal horror stories (I will save those details for the blog) I constantly try to look for the good.
I am a social media manager and accidental PR person and up until December 2017, I was working professionally in communications. I didn’t get too far into my professional career before a merger threw a wrench into what I thought was my life plan and gave me the opportunity to re-evaluate everything I wanted. That all eventually led me here. (As I already said, I will save those details for the blog.)
My interests are varied, vast and constantly changing. I love food, the outdoors, a good book, a good CD, and beat up VWs. Oh and very important, don’t mess with my pitbull!
Most days I am insecure and full of self doubt. My self confidence can lean on the low side sometimes, but I still believe I can do great things. I’m weird. I’m quirky. I’m usually very awkward.
I am…Simply Alex!
With this blog I welcome you all into a small piece of my world. I will talk to you a lot about travel and outdoor activities, as well as food and the places you should and shouldn’t eat. I will share with you my photography and all the other creative projects I dabble in. Along with all that, I am going to share with you my stories and my experiences. The stories and experiences of those around me. The things I have dealt with and experienced, as well as the things I am bound to experience on this journey with you. I will share my thoughts and fears… and lots of anxiety. I will get personal and I will get silly, and because of who I am I can guarantee you I will get a little weird.
Welcome to my world and thank you for joining me! I hope you enjoy it all as much as I do…most days.
