As a blogger, I attend a monthly get-together of other local bloggers. It gets us antisocial folks out from behind our laptops and out into the world where we can meet each other. While we sometimes talk shop, usually the conversation is more personal. In an effort to bring some of that personal-ness to you, we have a quick set of Q&A’s with none other than, well, myself!
Get to know the girl behind the posts in this brief interview:
It’s my middle name. Literally. It’s a mash-up of Lorraine (my dad’s mom’s middle name) and Elizabeth (my mom’s sister’s middle name). The name was originally attributed to my etsy store, but eventually expanded as my interest expanded into blogging.
What brought you to #NWARK?
My parents moved me to Eureka Springs when I was in 7th grade to go to Clear Spring School (a small liberal private school). I moved to Conway to attend Hendrix College in 2008, and found my way back to Northwest Arkansas in 2011 when I transferred to the University of Arkansas. I love Fayetteville and have been settling more and more, so I’m not going anywhere else any time soon.
What is your passion in life?
Education. I’m in school to become a teacher, and believe that education is the best way to make positive change happen. While my blog does not feature much about formal education, I like to think that the bits of knowledge I share with the world make inklings of change and help people. You’ll see the influence though if you check out the names of my pinterest boards.
What was your favorite job ever?
I worked for three summers in a row at Girl Scout camps all around the state of Arkansas. It changed my life.
Who’s your family?
My mom and dad. They are incredibly creative, funny, intelligent, and I’m so grateful to have them in my life. In Fayetteville, I live with my beautiful girlfriend of four years who is also a blogger for lorrabeth. And, I have a stuffed dinosaur named Fred.
What’s your go-to snack?
Peanut butter. It could save your life, unless you are allergic to peanuts in which case it could kill you. Still, peanut butter.
