Hi! I’m Hannah Kelley, coffee drinker, fashion enthusiast, and mom to a precocious three-year old little girl (thus the need for coffee)! When I’m not chasing my daughter around the playground, I teach history to college students. I love telling stories, which is why I got into history. In fact, I love story-telling so much that my husband and I named our first cat Story.
I enjoy talking history with my students, or anyone else who will listen for that matter. But, the problem with history is that I’m always telling someone else’s story. I want to tell my own tale. Let’s face it, it is unlikely that I am going to go down in the annals of history as a distinguished figure. That’s fine. No biggie. Still, I have a story to tell of a well-lived life. And that’s where the blog comes in!!
I was born and raised in small-town Virginia. I did spend a few years during graduate school in the bustling city of Worcester, Ma. While I learned a lot about academia during my time there, I also discovered that I am a small town girl at heart (cue John Mellencamp). I came home, married my preacher’s son, Jeremy, and settled down to our ordinary, extraordinary life! Before having Bella, we adopted 3 cats, and most recently we rescued a 2-year-old retired racing greyhound named Echo.
Life is busy, with its fair share of highs and lows. I want to utilize this blog to provide a little lightness into your hectic day. Drop by here when you want to see the latest fashion trends (and how I am interpreting them). You’ll also find info on interior decorating, food, and of course mom life. So, grab a cup of coffee (you know I will!), sit back and enjoy!
