I'm Emily Blasik, a 28-year-old wife and writer with a thing for bookstores, French culture, sparkling wine (the dryer the better), and the crisp smell of fall.

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. In the end, it did more than that; Her Story Goes helped me to find my voice and follow my heart. 

Nowadays you can find my writing here.

My husband and I currently reside in North Dallas, where he's taking the IT world by storm and I'm channeling my long-time food and health obsession into my new role as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (a fancy name for a holistic health coach). Content creation is my forté, and I'll jump on any opportunity that combines my love for words and wellness in order to help others live their best lives. When I'm not seeing clients or blogging for companies, you can find me hanging out at a local coffee shop—nose-deep in a good mystery novel, snapping photos of my extra frothy cappuccino, or planning my next travel adventure.

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

Welcome to my little corner of the internet, where I chronicle my everyday thoughts and adventures, both at home and abroad.

Thanks for stopping by!
