I’m Abby and welcome to my corner of the world.
(That’s me, by the way. My sister-in-law took that picture. She’s so talented!)
If you’re going to stick around here, which I hope you do, here’s what you need to know about me:
I’m 25 and I live in Pittsburgh with my husband, Dave, and our dog, Dexter. I started this blog in ’09 to share my passions and what I am learning through them. I believe that God gave us all passions and talents that we may use them to glorify Him and bless others.
I love to run and sometimes other forms of exercise, but my heart really belongs to running. You can usually find me running all over the greater Pittsburgh region and even in some races when I need a new t-shirt.
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh way back in ’07 with degrees in Classics and Philosophy. I took the long route to a humanities degree by making a “PITT” stop in the school of Nursing for a year a half. I love people, but I love dead philosophers and emperors more.
Books. I love them. I will read anything that makes me think. I will also quote a lot of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and J.K. Rowling. If you think that makes me weird, you’re totally right. And if you didn’t get the “weird” vibe when I mentioned Classics and Philosophy, you must not have had your coffee yet today.
I dabble in photography in my free time. I have a blog just for my snaps, which you can find by clicking here.
Another thing you need to know about me is that I raised with boys. This has made me rather independent but is mostly responsible for my love of sports. Steelers, Pirates and, most importantly, Penguins Hockey. It’s always a great day for hockey!
I also have celiac disease and while this is by no means a food blog, I will occasionally post about my adventures in gluten-free cooking and eating because it’s new to me and I know a lot of people struggle with celiacs, too.
