About Ally Bean *new*

 Hello and thank you for reading my blog, The Spectacled Bean.

•  I am a free spirit. This means I do my own thing here, but because I’m a conscientious woman I do my own thing neatly. With a bit of style and planning.

•  I started my first blog in 2004 and have come to understand that personal blogs need not be pedantic and narrow, so I write on a variety of topics in a myriad of ways. Eclectic rocks.

•  I’ve been told that I’m charmingly cynical and that I’m subtly subversive here. I agree. It’s my way of making the most of my cognitive dissonance.

•  I like many things. These things include, but are not limited to: humor, daisies, sauvignon blanc, denim, intelligence, tulips, bourbon, travel, kindness, sunflowers, going for walks, and the color teal.

•  I’m married to my college sweetheart. He studied Economics, I studied English. We live in a suburb of a big midwestern city. We are happy.

•  I believe Maya Angelou said it best: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
