Everyone's Doing It

It's official...I'm one of "those people" who has decided to blog about absolutely nothing that no one cares about. yay!!!! Against the advice of my best friend since 4th grade; I have joined the blogging ban wagon. I figure since I'm an only child I can blame the need to talk about myself on that. (Thanks mom)
So I'm sure you are wondering, "Why do you feel you should blog and that anyone would care?" That's a very good question.
(fyi: this is mostly for friends and hush! btw, clearly you are intrigued. You made it past the first paragraph.)

This whole blog obsession thing started about a year ago when I started a new hobby. KNITTING. (insert trumpet sounds here) Since I have a very obsessive personality; naturally I not only started knitting into the wee hours of the night but I also started googling knitting blogs. Low and behold there it was....hey jen of the best blogs ever. One thing led to another and next thing you know I'm clicking on link after link and end up being sent to amazing blog after amazing blog. And go figure....knitting led to foodies which led to photography which directed me right to travel!!
Hello faves.

Now here I am a year later...completely uprooting my life and moving to Chicago within a 4 day period and loving every minute.

Fast forward to a month and a half ago and I'm telling all my friends my insane stories of being single in this gorgeous city and what do I keep hearing " Tanyel you should totally blog about this. It's hilarious!" (Now by "all my friends"...that pretty much consists of 5-6 ladies in my knitting group back home who don't get to see me every Wednesday like they used to, my mom, my favorite daycare teacher that I still keep in touch with and my mom's best friend. Hello fan club.) And that is just what I'm going to do. (I mean who doesn't have a little dream of becoming the next Julie Powell?)

let the blogging begin...

**Dedicating my first blog to the most amazing women I know...
Wednesday Night Knit Stop Rookie Class. I love and miss you guys.**


  1. Finally! I think it's great and we miss you too!

  2. I LOVE this and can't wait to read more. And I also love Chicago – we visit family in the burbs every few months or so and always try to make time to head to the city, so I can't wait to hear about your adventures there. (Also, thanks for the sweet shout-out.) :)

  3. Hey Tanyel,

    This is the first blog iI have ever read. Perhaps I am tainted from Wednesday night Knitting. I think we should all road trip to see you.- Marcy
