about Allie.


Hi there. I’m Allie. (Aren’t I patriotic?)

You can call me sassafras.

1. A feisty girl. 2. One who sasses.

I’m a Southern transplant (from Minnesota) in North Carolina, lover of whale sharks, folk music, hiking, cold weather, reading, the outdoors, dry humor and science of all kinds, from ecology to astronomy. I laugh, a lot. I’ve been dating the coolest kid I know (“the boy”). He calls me Sassafras, because sometimes I’m sassy (meet him here). We spend our summers long distance because I summer in Michigan. I assistant manage an ice cream shop (it’s an adventure) and nanny two rambunctious kiddos.

I’m fascinated with people who are real and imperfect. I’m fiercely opinionated…and a libertarian. (I promise this will never be a political blog.) I want to spend at least a year living out of a suitcase, roaming around the world. I’m in high school, planning to study applied mathematics + environmental science when I graduate.

And yes, I would love to give you book/music recommendations and get yours! Just comment.

  1. Thanks so much for checking out my blog!

    Books that were really good:
    The Orphan Master’s Son, The Interestings, All That I Am, Where the God of Love Hangs Out

    Maine, Why We Broke Up, The Butterfly’s Daughter,

    I LOVED Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls!!! You should definitely listen to it on audiobook though…he reads it and he’s hilarious

  2. Hope you will fulfill you wish to travel a bit as it is one of the gratest pleasure of mine and is really worth all the fuss :)
