About Me

IMG_2293Hi, I’m Elizabeth! I live in Chicago with my cat (Phoebe), my dog (Wendy), and my partner (Tucker).

I’m originally from Atlanta and have also lived in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. I moved to New York City in 2016 for graduate school where I researched on the impact movement has on the social and emotional wellbeing of adolescent refugee girls. I work as a nonprofit consultant, an emergency room advocate, a doula, and a yoga teacher.

I’ve had this blog since 2009 and have used it for random thoughts, poems, stories, travel posts, lists, and other musings. I hope you find something here that speaks to you.

For more of me, I’m on Instagram and Twitter, and you can find some of my work at Waxing and Waning, Every Day Fiction,  Rusted Radishes, Pour Vida, and I write regularly for Release the Women.

    I’m glad I found your blog. I have been having difficulty understanding the techno digital world. I use a small world of it, but everything else is a blur. I like your blog it gives me some ideas. May God use you richly Elizabeth in Kosovo.
