Ally D (Street Articles Author)

Hey, I'm Ally. I've always loved to write growing up, and have recently started to write publicly mainly for fun. I want to share what I love and what makes my life rich. I am a simple kind of girl, married and blessed with my amazing little boy. I have traveled a bit and lived with my husband in Mexico for some years as well. I love to learn from and about other people, their backgrounds and their cultures, the way they think. As a stat at home mom I am constantly looking for ways to save a little money while adding to the fun and health of my family. I currently live in Chicago and am exploring my city little by little. (I'm a suburbs girl, so there's so much to explore!) My goal I'm aiming at is to learn about and incorporate green living into my everyday life. Share with me what you know! I love to draw, create, go for walks, surf, dance, go cool places with alone or with those I love. I love meeting new people too, so, "Nice ta meet ya!". I hope I can find a home here at Street Article and grow as a writer. I hope to learn from you and that we can all shape each others worlds and minds in positive ways.
