Welcome to Both Sides of the Tracks!
The name of the blog pays homage to my “love story” with my husband, Tyler, who encouraged me to start writing.
Although Tyler and I officially met at work, we’ve been connected for a much longer period of time. We went to the same college and we grew up in the same town. For various reasons, we never met until after I graduated, and I frequently joke with Tyler that this is because he is from “the wrong side of the tracks”.
As I said before, making this blog happen was mainly due to Tyler’s encouragement (and technical skills), but it also came about because I’ve been so inspired by other women’s stories and work on the web.
When I first began, about three years ago, I imagined that I would write a lot about fashion, which I always enjoy reading about. But, I soon figured out that taking and posting pictures of myself was NOT my favorite thing to do. As a result, what you’ll see here are posts mostly about my day to day life: being a mom, what I’m reading, where we’re traveling, etc.
P.S. While Tyler still does most of the behind-the-scenes work (programming and photography), you will also be hearing from him every once in a while. Isn’t he cute?!
