the girl behind the blog


Hey, there Welcome to Finding Wonderland! My name is Rissi, and I’m a brunette Midwesterner.

here’s a little more about me;
I am…

an aspiring writer
the girl who wears heels with jeans
a Silver Petticoat contributor (a.k.a an amazing hybrid online publication)
an INSPYs Advisory Board member
confirmed bookaholic who’s passionate about words and writing
which may explain why I make up conversations between my current characters in my head (this can be quite inconvenient)
a girl with an Internet photo phobia
fan of the “meet-cute” and happy-ever-afters
amateur photographer
amateur graphic designer

When I’m not typing away at my keyboard or working as a jewelry designer (Etsy), spending quality time with my wonderful family is a favorite pastime.

You, the readers and wonderful friends never cease to brighten my day with a cheerful comment or encouraging word and you are an endless source of inspiration, so thank you.

Here are some of my favorite things: abc’s crime drama, Castle // blogging // bright, beautiful crisp days // costume dramas // dancing with the stars // fairytales // friends // inspy’s // music // novels // olicity // photography // rainy days // romantic comedies // simple joys // starbucks // team mckenna // writing
