hi! i'm ally.
That feeling you get when you get snap out of the mindless scroll, only to realize that you can’t get that time back. And that you actually feel worse. Those hours spent each week being “connected”, without feeling any sense of connection or community.
so i had this crazy idea.
What if I start sharing the stories of the inspiring people, places and things in our very own community? Like the people who are living out their dreams, or dedicating THEIR lives to bettering those of others? Or share some personal stories in hopes of helping someone who may be struggling? What if I add a dose of positivity to your feed, and you end up closing your browser with a smile or jolt of inspiration?
This, my friend, is what I feel is
IT ALL STARTED WHEN I REALIZED THAT I’M MUCH MORE of A CREATIVE THAN AN ENGINEER.
In fact, I LOVE to learn, create and share stories. They may be in the form of some local lust-worthy finds. Or style tips. Or that dinner I'm still drooling over. Or the challenges of parenting four wild boys. My intention is always to enlighten and inspire. And to bring light to our unique community of Saratoga Springs in the fun and fresh way that it deserves.
