You don’t have to speak: you can do it in the dance
You don’t have to hide: you are safe within the dance
All of us are free in the heart of the dance
So mote it be, in the name of the dance!
– SJ Tucker


Hi, I’m Ronica (pronounced RAW-nih-kah). Please call me Ronni.

I’m a yoga-doing, copy editing, daydreaming, mom
(to the most awesome kid ever),
wife to Adam,
and servant to two kitties.

I live in Chicago, IL.
My street kinda looks like Sesame Street.
{minus the muppets}
I travel to Disney World at least once a year.
I love pens and stationery.
I also love the Sun, blue skies, warm days,
fluffy clouds, and light breezes.
Books are my friends.
Spaghetti is my favorite food.
(But it has to be MY spaghetti. Or Adam’s. Or Aidan’s.)

My ultimate dream is to be a published, wildly successful author.
Or a movie star.
I also would love to be a Disney parade dancer.
Now, I’m a freelance copy editor and a senior marketing assistant,
and a certified yoga teacher.
(I don’t teach, though.)

I still sleep with a teddy bear.
His name is Pandernoodle, and he’s awesome.
I’ve had him since I was one. See?

I’m obsessed with bananas but I don’t like to eat them.
I do not like loud noises. Especially people yelling.
I hate the sound of footsteps and of people chewing.
{really. it makes me angry to hear either}
I have a super nose. I really do. I can sniff out just about anything, bad or good.
{it’s a blessing and a curse}
My fingernails grow REALLY fast.
I wish my hair grew as quickly as my fingernails.
{I want really long hair}
There is a canon Star Wars character named after me.
{It’s in Lost Stars by Claudia Gray}

Life is very, very good.
I have a family who loves me.
A God who showers me with blessings all day, every day.
Amazing friends.
I get to do work I genuinely enjoy.
And I am thankful for it all.
Santosha anuttamah sukha labhah
