I'm Emily Blasik, a twenty-six year old wife, writer, and self-proclaimed wanderer. But really, I'm just a girl who enjoys the simple things in life. Namely, cold brew coffee and oversized sweaters. I read a little bit of everything, travel as much as my pocketbook will allow, and blog about life as I know it.

Born in South Louisiana and raised in East Texas, I returned home to Houston after graduating from UT at Austin in 2013 with a degree in English and journalism. It was there, during a post-college quarter-life crisis, that I co-founded the lifestyle blog Her Story Goes with my best friend in order to connect with inspiring women via the written word. (If you're looking for something to read, it's way more interesting than this blog!)

My husband and I currently reside in North Dallas, where he's taking the IT world by storm and I'm slowly but surely making my way through every hipster coffee shop within reasonable driving distance. (I'll let you know which one's the best.) When we're not working or traveling, we are a couple of homebodies who, on any given night, would prefer to stay in, cook crawfish étouffée, and watch a superhero movie rather than go out on the town. But that's just how we roll.

Other things of note: I collect snow globes and will forever be a supporter of the Oxford Comma.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. If you're new to With Candor, feel free to check out these posts first: the beginning of my blog journey, learning to let go, falling in love for the first time, and a lesson in turning 23. Thanks for stopping by!
