About me

My name is Alessia, and I am a bit of a millennial stereotype: I love avocado on toast and brunches, almond milk lattes and skinny jeans. I joke that I am the character Amy Sherman-Palladino would write if she wrote a TV series about a 30yo Catholic writer who does everything except writing. I do write, sometimes, and this is one of my outlets for it. 

Being a Christian, and especially a Catholic, it’s a big part of my identity. If you don’t like people talking about their faith, then I can only offer you nice food and pretty pictures but otherwise, I’m not really the blogger for you. This blog has documented my life growing into being in my 30s, a wife and career woman balancing the various ways in which my vocations manifests. 

I love the traditions of the Church without falling into the traps of traditionalism: it’s a living organism, preserving the past as much as adapting to the present. I am strongly conscious of my femininity being something beyond girly and demure; while I love cooking and I’m increasingly invested in homemaking, I’m as far from a trad wife as it gets, so if you are here and not a woman, know that you are welcome and this space is for you, too, even if this is a space that explores what it means to be a Catholic woman in a 21st-century urban space.
