A Touch of Home Life: Part 1
Recently Melissa and I were talking blog talk. Since we are college roommates, during the summer we are not together and we have been trying to think of creative ways to pull our posts together even being 3 hours apart. That's when we realized, you have no idea who we really are!
So who are we?
In part one I will be talking about me, Aubrey.
My story is mainly based in little old Lancaster County, PA or as most people might call it, Amish Country (note the never ending corn in the photo above). Needless to say, my fashion sense did not come from here. I just couldn't find a way to rock an Amish bonnet.
My family and friends are the most important thing in my life. The pretty girl in the second photo is my sister, Nikki. She is my best friend, confident, and partner in crime. I have no idea what I would do without her; I am the luckiest. This year we had a new addition to our family, Eva, a foreign exchange student from Italy. Currently, my sister is enjoying all the gelato and pizza in the world while visiting her. Rough summer, huh?
My loving and supportive family led me to where I am in life today. They believed in my crazy artistic and fashion passion. I have been drawing ever since I can remember and started sewing what I can only assume were meant to be outfits for my American girl dolls as soon as I could figure out how. In high school, while everyone else was trying to go to school for steady jobs I had my mind set on fashion. Now I am in my final year at Fashion Institute and cannot wait to see what happens from here!
