Hi there,

My name is Giada, like the Jade stone but in Italian. Matter of fact I was born and raised in Italy where I still get  to visit my family from time to time.

I don’t usually talk about myself and this “ABOUT” section was so daunting. I stared at this blank space for way too long so I decided to take a different approach and list a few facts about myself.

1- I once was a foreign exchange student and on my lists of preferences the US barely made it to the top three. Number one was New Zealand, number two Australia, and number three USA. The destination was completely out of my control but everything was meant to be. Keep reading if you want to know why.

2- I met my now husband during my year abroad and I fell head over heels for him the very first moment I saw him. I never thought he would talk to me let alone date me. Imagine that!

3- I always pick sweet over savory and my favorite food is dark chocolate. I could eat it every day and most days I do. It makes me so happy and it’s sort of healthy right … (Right??)

4- I get very emotionally involved with movies and tv-shows. I usually end up having a good cry 9 times out of 10. It can get pretty embarrassing you have been warned!

5- Growing up I always thought that eventually something would click and I’d start feeling like a “real adult” but what does that even mean? For now I just follow the motto “Fake it ’till you make it” and hope nobody notices when I make a fool of myself which happens a lot. If you looked through my google search history you would probably have a good laugh. I just try to pay bills on time and google everything else. What a time to be alive!

Bonus fact:

6-  My socks almost never match. What does that say about me?
