I’m Ava, which is short for Avaline, which is short for “Avaline is a cooler name than my real one.” I’m living in a little midwestern town by way of a big city in Colorado, by way of a much bigger city on the East Coast. I love sewing, music, coffee, cars, and anything involving adrenaline. I seem to have a lot of opinions about any of the above topics and share them enthusiastically. I’ve seen many things and have many stories, as we all do.
Now that I’m in my fourth decade of being alive, I get down sometimes about the fact that things just don’t seem as exciting as they once did. Truthfully, things are much better than they’ve ever been–it’s just that I’m realizing now that drama is the true American addiction, and without it, things seem a little… ordinary. Normal is the new weird, and I’m trying to get on board with it.
So basically, this blog is about me, and how I’m just like everyone else. Right?
