Hi, I’m Silken!
(Yes, I have the same name as Silken Laumann- another kick-ass Canadian female!)
I was born and raised in the small town of Alliston, Ontario. I grew up listening to country music, dancing my heart out and wanting to be like my big sister Larkin! We lived in one house for our whole lives, went to the only high school in town and eventually took off to live in the “big city” for the first time during college. Fast forward to my twenty-fourth year, I’m back living in another small-ish town, Barrie, ON! (I don’t know about you, but I thought “smalltownblogger” seemed like a pretty fitting name!) I just completed my third college program and have now graduated with a diploma in Human Services, Police Foundations and most recently my passion of Early Childhood Education. You can officially call me Miss.Silken when you see me teaching in your kiddos classroom! I like to spend my weekends doing outdoorsy things with my other half (kayaking, camping, hiking & can patios fit in here!?), finding DIY projects to improve our house, hosting get-togethers or completely disconnecting while enjoying a self-care Sunday! I’ve always enjoyed writing, journaling and blogging, but more recently I’ve decided to start publishing it for you all! I’m the girl who’s all positivity, sunshine and belly-laughs. I hope that you read my lifestyle blog and feel the same way!
Life’s a journey, let’s figure it out together!
