Hi I’m Holly, and I am thrilled to meet you!
When I began high school in 2009, I started my first blog. I’d always been a writer, but my work was confined to the pages of my private journals. I discovered the platform of a blog, way before blogging was the industry it is now, and I’ve been hooked ever since. My first blog was an online diary where I wrote about what happened when I hung out with friends on a Friday night, my faith and getting my braces off (I know). Little did I know that this hobby would soon become one of my life’s greatest passions, joys and challenges.
For years I posted on my blog when I had something specific to say about life as a high schooler or about my walk with Jesus Christ. It was a mix of fun and serious, and I didn’t even let anyone know about it for a very long time. Blogging has grown with me, and I am the person I am today because of it.
As a sophomore in college, I was sitting in a business public relations class at the University of Oklahoma listening to a professional snowboarder turned marketing professional talk about pursuing your passion. One of his biggest tips was to create a personal brand by buying a domain name and creating a personal website. Later that day I bought HollyHoehner.com.
I graduated with distinction from the University of Oklahoma in May 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in public relations with a minor in communication. I am a proud member of Pi Beta Phi (ring ching!), as well as a born-and-raised Sooner fan and Oklahoman.
Those who know me know I enjoy sweet tea, classic clothing, good manners, picking up new hobbies, spending time with my very closest friends, reading, a nice glass of champagne, waffles, my family, witty people, shopping, 80s music and iced coffee. I’m a self-proclaimed music and movie lover, but nothing beats a great hardcover book. I’m passionate about anti-aging skin care, ice cream and sleeping. You’ll find Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac and One Direction playing in my car and guilty pleasure TV on my screen. Helping young women develop a positive self-image is one of my passions. I’m a proud ENJF … and a lover of personality quizzes.
My hope is that when you visit my blog you leave inspired and encouraged to live a fulfilling and timeless life. Everything I do is to bring my readers closer to knowing the love of Christ that has changed my life.
