I grew up in a tiny Nebraska town and still call the Cornhusker state home — don’t be fooled, though, it’s not all farms and cattle. I founded my lifestyle blog, The Basics, after graduating college and feeling more lost and confused than ever. When I’m not writing or obsessing over my favorite blogs, I can be found snuggling with my cats Harry and Susan, whipping something up in the kitchen or shopping all my fave local stores.
