My name is Hannah! I began writing and creating in this corner of the internet in December 2009. My first post wasn’t pretty (and I can’t believe I wrote some of the stuff I did back then) but I admire the girl who didn’t hold back. She holds a special place in my heart.
In the last 9 years, I started a love letter movement, gave a TED Talk, began speaking across the world on making an impact and mental health, and opened an online shop. My second book "Come Matter Here" came out in May 2018.
My passions rank in this order: God, my family and friends, health + weight lifting, true crime, and Bachelor Nation.
A New Englander at heart, I call Atlanta home. I met my husband on a dating site after years of thinking I would meet him in aisle 7 of the grocery store. The Internet has given me most good things so I shouldn’t be surprised it gave me the sweetest, kindest partner. We live in a walking neighborhood of Atlanta and we love camping, binge-watching BBC crime shows, and spending evenings with a meat and cheese plate at our neighbor’s restaurant.
