About Me

Well hello there.

first-blog-post

Long time, no see!

For those who are new to this blog, my name is Cait and I have been blogging here at Finding Her Balance since around 2008. For those who know me, after not posting too much in the past two years, I decided to start fresh (same blog name, different platform) and give it another go.

A few personal tidbits about myself: I live in New Jersey, where I was born and raised, with my fiancé Erik. We’ve been together for 6 years, living together for just about 2 years, and engaged for 3 weeks. I work in the accounting department for a company that owns fast food franchises, which is crazier than you might expect. For fun, I like to bake, craft, binge-watch whatever’s on Food Network, and watch hockey with Erik. I’m on the verge of my 30th birthday (on January 8) and I’m looking to take a little more ownership of my life this year. More on that in a later post.

For those who are not new, you read that word ‘fiancé’ right: Erik and I got engaged just a few weeks before Christmas! We are still basking in the glow of excitement and not getting too bogged down in the planning process yet, but we’re prospectively looking at May 2018. In addition to that, we are planning on moving into another apartment when our lease is up in April, even though the prospect of moving and then planning a wedding this year makes me want to break out in hives. But, better to move this year instead of waiting until next year, as next year it would mean moving mere months before we’re looking to get married.

Upcoming posts will include wedding planning details, daily life recaps, goal-setting and self growth, and any other ideas that pop into my brain. I’m hoping to channel more of my creativity this year, so perhaps I’ll have some DIY posts on things I create. I hope you’ll stick around and see!

And now a request – say ‘hi’ in the comments and tell me something fun about yourself! Examples: your latest accomplishment, big or small; your favorite TV show; a quirky personality trait or habit that you have.
