Welcome to Just One Life! That life being mine, Paige Magee.

I’ve thought about starting a blog for over a year, but always put it on the back burner. I kept getting stuck on the idea that I don’t have one specific box or category that my posts would fall into. I’ve considered creating a blog about many things life has to offer – my faith, DIY, cooking (or lack of), women empowerment, personal development and fashion/style just to name a few. I couldn’t narrow it down to one box. But then I came to the realization that life can’t just be put in one box. Life is beautiful and messy all at the same time, so this is a space where I can document all of the above and anything in between that may strike my fancy.
So a little about me…I’m a 24 year old from the Chicago suburbs. First things first, I have one child I absolutely adore. Okay, it’s a dog, but an adorable, slightly neurotic, Shetland Sheepdog named Riley. You can find plenty of pictures of him on my Instagram. I’m an Instructional Designer/Graphic Designer still adjusting to working in an office everyday. It’s been over 3 years, so I’m hoping to get used to it soon (*sigh). I don’t know how I’ve kept myself fed these past couple years considering I’m just learning to cook now. Before we go any further, I must admit that I burnt 6 pieces of toast in a row once.
So listen up, I’m still figuring things out and learning how to navigate this beautiful life God has given me. So stick around. I’d love to share it with you!
