Well, hello there…
Hi! I’m so glad you found your way here.
My name is Devon, Dev, Doodle, Ari, and a slew of other nicknames.
I’m a 20-something millennial. Too preppy to be a hipster and too hipster to be preppy.
A wannabe minimalist with the tendencies and personality of a maximalist. (I’ve accepted my fate.)
I believe in the power of stories. From fairy tales to life stories, there is always something to be gleaned from a story that is shared and the world if full of them—you need only look for them and learn to listen.
Right now, you came just in time for my own story: A young woman sharing her attempt at this whole adulting thing, creating a career she loves, managing an endless curiosity that inevitably turns into a new hobby, and the endless struggle that is remembering to switch her laundry from the washer to the dryer. She is far from perfect and this is just a glimpse at her life.
That is why I call this An Aide-Memoire a.k.a an aide to memory. I want to remember the lessons I have learned and share them. I want to document the outfits that I wear to laugh at later. And the places I see and experience.
If you grow to admire me, I hope you admire my heart. If you wish to imitate me, I hope you imitate my strive to give grace and love those who cross my path. If you seek advice, I always have an open door policy for others to share their own stories with me.
So remember #ItsTheLittleThings and enjoy.
