Hello friends. I’m Aly and I just moved to Saint Paul, Minnesota with my husband.  I love teaching, writing, drinking coffee, taking pretty photos, shopping for shoes, listening to my grandparents’ stories, learning anything new, practicing yoga, running on pretty trails, trying new recipes, watching the Packers, making our home feel homier, autumn, spring, birthdays,quiet moments, my beautiful family, and making up songs.

Silver City is a nickname of Saint Paul. I’m a bit foggy as to the derivation of said nickname. However, there is something about the notion of discovering the beauty and silver lining in people, places, and situations that has been a natural disposition and

I shoot all of my own photography {unless otherwise noted/credited to another photographer} with either my {Nikon D90 DSLR camera} or my {iPhone 5 camera}.

The idea for this writing project came from my extraordinarily supportive and handsome husband. Who, coincidentally, reads and loves my writing, and encourages me to write more.  This is our adventure in words, photos, and little rays of sunshine as we explore and embrace a new city.
