About Me

To formally introduce myself, I’m Christina – a twenty something, Chicago-based grandma and busy bee seeking to live a simple, beautiful life. I’m so happy you’ve discovered my blog and hope you keep popping in every now and then.

On this blog you will find me looking to enjoy all that life has brought my way with what I call “an attitude of gratitude.” I believe that life should be as beautiful as possible. If you don’t design your life, someone else will — so this blog is me carving out my own joy, meaning, and purpose.

My Petite Joys will most often feature topics for travel (near & far), home décor, wellness, adventures in crafting, and thoughts on the simple (petite) things that bring me joy.

I look forward to getting to know you all and just remember that  I have all the interests and passions of a grandma – so if your perfect evening consists of staying home on a Friday night with a good book and cup of tea than we can very probably be best friends.   ~ Christina 🐝
