Some of my favorite blog posts to read are lists and Q&A. We all know they’re the most fun, so what better way for you to meet me than with a little mix of both?
- I’m Ellie! It’s really Elizabeth, but Ellie for short thanks to General Hospital.
- Most importantly, I’m a daughter of the King and forever captured by grace.
- Mmmmm! I love the grocery store. I could spend hours there.
- I’ll definitely have a golden retriever one day. That’s a promise.
- Long hair is the goal. My patience has been tested multiple times through the growing out process.
- A mug of hot tea, a blanket, and a rainy day and I’m one happy girl.
- Determined to become a smoothie lover. Slowly but surely, it will happen.
- Hummus. Hummus with carrots, hummus with pita chips, hummus with everything!
1. When you say you’re a South Georgia girl, how far south do you really mean?
Well let’s just say I’m not from the Tennessee line claiming to be a South Georgia girl (though I do love the mountains). My hometown is about forty minutes north of Tallahassee, Florida.
2. Where do you go to school?
I’m currently a third year student at the University of Georgia in Athens. Here’s the thing about Athens, even though it’s significantly bigger than my hometown, it feels so cozy and quaint.
Here are some of my favorite parts:
- There are always local restaurants to check out. I think you could live in Athens and never eat at a chain restaurant (unless you’re like me and love Zaxby’s salads with all of your heart). Enjoy breakfast at Big City Bread or Mama’s Boy, lunch at the Earth Fare salad bar, and dinner at Last Resort. They won’t disappoint!
- The Greenway is the best biking or running trail. Trees, the river, and no traffic makes for a beautiful day outside.
- There’s always a music show somewhere.
- Ooooo my church in Athens is great! So much truth from those teachers. Sure do love Watkinsville First Baptist.
- Campus is beautiful. As soon as I step foot on North Campus (the oldest and most historic buildings of UGA are here) each morning, I feel blessed to attend such a classic and prestigious university. Go dawgs!
3. Marketing and Dietetics? Interesting combination.
Yes! When it comes to coursework, they’re pretty much opposites, but because Marketing covers so many broad topics, I am confident that they will complement each other easily. Ultimately, we all have to market ourselves even if only in a job interview, so no matter where I work, I know my background in Marketing will not hurt.
4. What made you start blogging?
I’ve always loved reading blogs but never really felt capable enough to write one for myself, but now I think it’s time to go for it and see what happens. Mostly, I want The Daily Graze to be a fun and casual space to share my journey with whole foods and fitness, and hopefully, quick and simple posts with little time for revisions will help crush the little bit of perfectionism still left in me.
