Welcome to Courtney's Little Things, my little spot on the internet. I'm Courtney, a Midwest girl from Nebraska. I love decorating my planner and bullet journal, reading books and other blogs, watching Law & Order SVU marathons, and spending time with my friends and family. I have a weak spot for cute stationary and mugs (even though I don't drink coffee).
I'm almost done studying to be a Spanish teacher! I'm student teaching this fall and will be graduating in December. I always wanted to be a teacher. Once I took Spanish classes in high school I knew that I wanted to teach Spanish since it combines my love of teaching, foreign languages, and learning about other places and cultures. I was lucky enough to study abroad in Costa Rica and loved it!
I started this blog in December 2014 on a bit of a whim. I had been reading blogs for a few years and thought it sounded like a fun way to be creative through writing and photography. Since I had a lot of free time during my winter break, I started blogging here on Courtney's Little Things and haven't stopped since! I write about a variety of things since this is a lifestyle blog, but it usually relates back to college, organization, or creative projects like DIYS or blogging. I hope this space inspires and encourages you to be a happier you!
