About Me

Well, hello there! I'm Mia. I started this blog back in 2012 because I needed a place to write and share my thoughts and I haven't looked back since. I knew there had to be other people out there who were interested in the same things as me and I sure found them. Writing, blogging, reading, journaling - I'm a nerd at heart.

My "day job" is freelance copywriting. I help product-based business owners write product descriptions with engaging, heartfelt copy. I also provide podcast and video transcriptions.

I'm also the Editorial Manager for Holl & Lane Magazine. The message at Holl & Lane is a simple one - each time you open up and share a part of your story, you help someone else feel less alone. We are more than a magazine. We are a place to sit, away from the storm, and realize that others have been through hard times too and made it through. And so will you. I'm proud to be a part of something that strives to bring people together.

A few random facts about me: 

* I love chips and salsa beyond what is probably normal.

* I have so many books on my "to be read" list that I'll probably never read them all before I leave this Earth. But that's OK. We all need something to strive for, right?

* I married my high school sweetheart. He's my best friend.

* I have two boys who are the apple of my eye.

* I'm a writer, and I hope to one day publish a book.

* I've lived in Virginia almost my entire life. (If you live in Virginia, too, hit me up!)

Some of my favorite posts on the blog: 

* Maria vs Mia

* Where do I fit in? 

* Under Lock and Key {an original short story}

* Moonlight and Smoke {an original short story}

* You are the Hunter {a message of Empowerment}

* I want {a poem about friendship}

* I Married My High School Sweetheart (Holl & Lane blog, March 2016)

So glad that you stopped by, thanks for reading!
