What I'm Reading Now: In Residence

I'm so excited to start this new series and introduce you to some pretty amazing bloggers. My hope is that you'll find a new blogger to add to your reading list on Bloglovin or learn something new about one of your favorite bloggers.

This week I'm featuring Anne, an English major turned work-from-home editor, and the brilliant blogger behind In Residence. I've been a long time follower of In Residence for book recommendations, recipe ideas, DIY projects, and Pinterest pins becoming reality (my favorite series on the blog). What I love most about In Residence is Anne's approach to pursuing what she enjoys and blogging about it in a creative and refreshing way.

Get to know Anne:

1. What are you currently reading?
I'm about to start Beautiful Ruins, one of the books on my summer reading list.

2. Favorite recipe or restaurant?
Best big, fat, chewy chocolate chip (they really are the best - it's that full tablespoon of vanilla that does it!).

3. What's your favorite thing about blogging? 

How my online blogging life has actually influenced and improved my real-world life: I've made in-person friends with several blogging buddies; I've been motivate to learn how to create things in Photoshop and with HTML, take better photos, define my personal style, and make new recipes; and (crazy as it sounds) I've developed a self-confidence in my blogger self that has actually made me more confident and outgoing in everyday life!

4. Five things on your wish list:

  • Classic trench coat
  • Amazon Prime membership
  • Gold boyfriend watch
5. Favorite quote?
There are plenty more profound, but for my profession and English major nerdiness, this one I saw on Pinterest: "Grammar: the difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit."

Thanks for joining the soiree today Anne!




  1. Fun series! So happy to have found your blog and to see you are originally from GR. I'm from East Lansing and I'm your newest follower!
