I am a transplanted American (New Yorker!) now living in Toronto (after living in small-town Ontario and Montreal before that) with my husband, toddler, and dog. In my undergraduate degree at Loyola University in Maryland, I studied writing, political science, classics and Asian studies. In 2010 I completed a Master’s degree in Public Policy and Public Administration from Concordia University in Montreal. However, I am beginning to think I just went to school because I just really like to learn (and I fear I might go back).
My husband and I opened our own jewellery store called Allison | Brown when we first moved to Toronto, but we closed the store after adding a wee one to our family! As a result, I am in such a different place than where I was when I started writing the self-styled life. I’m now a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom and while it’s challenging, I’m really loving it! With all of these changes, I’ve learned that there’s no endpoint to the process of being happy and living a great life–I will always have things to talk about here!
