Hi! I’m Hannah. My high school sweet heart-turned-husband, Max, and I have bounced around a few Chicago neighborhoods the last ten years, and have made Lakview home. Our dog, Sally, is a gorgeous golden retriever – an affirmation we tell her daily. Besides writing, I’m passionate about my little family, books, film, education, and my career. I am a laughable tennis player and my French language skills are mediocre at best; I refuse to give up hope in either arena.
I’ve been a writer all my life – mainly chronic journaling and many torn-up short stories. It is the beginning of 2019 and the ominous thirty is approaching with abandon. It felt like a now-or-never moment to start honing my writing. So I’m making myself write to an audience (do I have one? Are you there?).
What you’ll find is a work in progress. While I love the traditional blog that has a clear lifestyle message and lots of sponsored links, you’re unlikely to find that here. For starters, I named my blog after a long-dead corrupt politician. When I try to google the site and come across a slew of historical documents, I laugh and realize what an awful name I picked. In other words, I’ve set the bar low.
