About Me

Hello, my name is Amy. 

I love clothes, history, hot pink, the beach, live music, reading, food, my friends, and learning to play my guitar.

Oh, and sunshine. Lots of sunshine.

In June of 2012 I decided to leave my hometown of Chicago after 3 generations of living there. I had never lived anywhere else and I had never been away for longer than 3 weeks. I sold my stuff, packed my sewing machine and my guitar into the car and decided to head West, young man, to seek my fame and fortune panning for gold in the eternal sunshine that is the city of angels.

This is my story.
