August Sponsor Spotlight: Little City Adventures

Hello all! Today I wanted to share someone special with you: Meet Abby! She is sponsoring Foreign Room this month, and I thought it might be nice for you to get to know her and her blog, Little City Adventures.
A little bit about her and her blog: Little City Adventures follows the life of newlyweds, Seth and Abby, and their adventures in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Abby blogs about everything from recipes to style, and even the coolest places to eat in Lancaster. Visit her blog and stay for a while, and prepare yourself for a bit of sarcasm and lots of fun.

Why did you decide to start blogging?
I began blogging when I felt a void of creativity in my life and as soon as I started Little City Adventures it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
If I could live anywhere in the world, I honestly think that I would be right where I am now in Lancaster City. My city has an amazing mix of old and new, crazy historical stuff, gorgeous old buildings, and hipster coffee shops and boutiques. The house we are currently renting is an older house that is completely redone on the inside. THat's one of the coolest things about homes and businesses in Lancaster, that on the outside they have like original brick while the the inside has up to date interiors. Also, the city is so diverse and I've met so many amazing people while working at the cafe downtown.
What is your dream job?
I want, more than anything, to be a mom. Ever since I was a little girl I knew that God made me to be a momma. And now that I'm married I am one step closer. As for a paying job, I want to be a full-time blogger and freelance writer.

Tell us a few random facts about yourself!
Ooooh random facts. I'm such a random person so I love questions like this but it's also hard for me to choose just a few facts.
1) I met my husband, Seth, at our church's youth group in 2010 at the start of my junior year and his senior year of high school. My parents also met in a youth group around the same age. And Seth and I are only about a year younger than my parents when they got married. How cool is that? 2) I am crazy injury prone. In fourth grade I broke both of my arms when I drove a four wheeler into a tree. In eighth grade I fell off a bike on a class field trip and shattered my left wrist and had to have surgery. Then right before tenth grade, I stepped on sewing scissors that were laying on the floor and sliced my foot up pretty good and had stitches. To this day I still have pain and numbness on my scar. And most recently, this winter I dropped a tea pot at work, it shattered, and sliced the palms of my right hand and I had to have stitches because it wouldn't close due to its location. 3) In December 2008, I was diagnosed with a severe anxiety disorder and selective anorexia, and entered partial hospitalization treatment in Hershey, PA. I was there Mon-Fri for breakfast, lunch, and a snack for two and a half months until I was able to go to school two days a week, then gradually back to school full time. It was a crazy hard time, but I learned a lot and I am now very open about my experiences and I also met my best friend and maid of honor in treatment!

What is the best advice you've ever been given?
Be yourself. For a long time I struggled with my identity and only recently have I decided to not care about what other people think. You can't grow into the person you were meant to be if you are afraid to be yourself.

A big thanks to Abby for sharing with us and for supporting my blog! I hope you guys like her as much as I do :)
