>>About Me

Hi! My name’s Aurelia, and I’m the face and words behind Abloom in Arizona. I was born in the desert of Phoenix, AZ and spent most of my childhood here, until my family moved to Southern California for my teen years. But here I am, 23, and back in the desert. I love writing (so much that I went to school for it), I’m a fanatic of exercising & running, I love to read (when I find the time), of course I’m obsessed with my wonderful husband, I love Jesus & want to live my life for him, and I can’t forget my little fur ball baby, Lexi. My escape is painting, canvases specifically, with whatever quotes, scripture or image I’m inspired by.

Life is sweet, but so often I get wrapped up in the stress of daily responsibilities that I forget how amazing life is. Being newly married, recently graduated and now a full fledged working adult, I want to share my sweet experience of life with you. So Thank You for visiting my blog and taking the time to read it (even if it’s just this page)!

Thanks again! xox Aurelia
