Hi! I'm Shelby

Y’all want to learn more about me? Wow! The pressure! Okay!

I am 27, and a newlywed. I grew up in a small town in East Texas. Went off to college in a slightly bigger town. I started off at a Junior College, because that is what you do when you grow up in a small town in Texas, and got an associate’s degree in Business Administration. I wanted to stay in the town I moved to and continue my education because Tyler is big city-minded with small town flair. So, I went to the University of Texas at Tyler and got a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. I am now a Structural Engineer at a firm in Tyler.

In my Personal Life, I have an amazing husband whom I met in college (he is also a Civil Engineer) and we have a child that is German Shepherd named Berlin. My family is my everything, like most Southern families.

I was never a creative or artistic person growing up. In engineering school, there is A LOT of report writing, especially in groups, and I always took on that responsibly. I soon learned that I loved to write and had a very controlling “Type A” personality. I learned that I was a little bit more creative than I thought. When transiting from college to the workforce, I felt that I did not have a creative outlet anymore. The life of an Engineer in Training is very dismal and repetitive. I wanted to start this Blog to give myself a creative outlet, but also connect with girls that are thinking about becoming engineers, college students, recently engaged women planning a wedding, students’ wondering what life after college is like, travelers, German Shepherd moms, Netflix/TV show enthusiasts, basically anyone who is willing to read this blog!​

I want this to be somewhere where I can give you my thoughts and life experiences because it is really just getting started.

Send me a message!

Thanks for submitting!
