Hi and welcome to my blog!
My name is Alyssa and I’m a CPA living in Michigan. I’ve lived here all my life and never dreamed of living in the city, let alone NYC. But alas, I fell in love with a guy who lives in Manhattan (oddly enough he used to live up the street and drive me to high school) I’m creating this blog to document my journey from the suburbs to living in NYC, and all life’s moments in between.
I have a passion for food and fitness, and a MAJOR weakness for ice cream.
I could spend hours every day wandering the aisles of Trader Joe’s and Target.
I love to cook with Jon and make healthier versions of our favorite foods. I try to eat dairy and gluten free, but as you’ll see from my posts, life’s too short to not eat good food.
I’m obsessed with Golden Retrievers and could burst with excitement at just the thought of having my own (when I have a house and yard of course).
I’m addicted to Lululemon and believe in athleisure.
I think I’m funny and laugh at my own jokes.
I’m a CPA at a public accounting firm and have a master’s degree in taxation #nerd
I’m a proud Michigan State University alum and will forever bleed green (how I ended up with a Michigan grad is beyond me)
My favorite quote: Hold the vision, trust the process; I think this is very fitting for my life because I have no idea how or when I’ll get to NYC, but I know that eventually I will be so happy there and create so many memories.
