Hi, I’m Evie! It’s pronounced Eh. Vee. “Every” without the “R”. It’s short for Evangelia (it’s Greek), and I was named after my maternal grandmother (I’ll get into that in another post). When I was younger, I hated having a name that most people mispronounced and that most people had never heard of (you can imagine I wasn’t finding my name on any of those souvenir keychains!). As I have gotten older, I have started to like my name… Maybe I grew into it.
I won’t get into my life story today (I’m sure you’ll be learning bits of that in upcoming posts), but I will give you a brief snapshot of who I am and why I decided to start blogging.
I’m 29 years old and live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I grew up in a suburb about 45 minutes outside of the city. I stayed in Pittsburgh for college (H2P), and then went straight through to law school (H2P x2). Now I live in a cute / trendy part of town (the closest thing to Georgetown you’ll find here!)– It’s pretty great. I have a puppy named Barrett and he’s pretty great. I also have a 3.5 year old nephew named Elijah – both of them will be regulars in my family oriented posts.
Why I’m blogging: I want a creative outlet. I have always enjoyed writing and the kind of writing I do in my career is more analytical and research based. I have journaled for years but was somewhat hesitant to put my writing out there for others to read. I wanted to get better about that and so I’m diving in.
You’ll find a smattering of everything: lifestyle pieces, family, food, drinks, travel, and maybe even some fashion. I hope you enjoy what I have to say!
