Checking In- Hiatus Explained

So, I fell off of the blogging wagon for a bit. I had a lot of stuff going on, both personally and professionally, and didn’t really want to write. I want my blog to be organic and natural so that it truly reflects me both as a writer and who I am as a person, so since I didn’t want to write, I didn’t force it. I am in a better place currently– the personal stuff is working itself out, and I have a few leads on exciting new career opportunities.  Continue reading “Checking In- Hiatus Explained”

One day, my boyfriend showed me an ad that he found on craigslist- a woman was rehoming a puppy. Continue reading “Meet Barrett!”

Getting to know me…

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.
