I’m pretty stoked to share my new website with you guys — which probably explains why this space has been lacking the past year or so…

I created my new portfolio with hopes of moving my blog writing + professional work + more to a combined space to not only keep me more sane, but prevent a scavenger hunt when it comes to sharing my stuff.

While my work portion is password protected — the world of advertising is a mine field of permissions… other sections like #annawritesstuff, essays (coming soon), and inspiration will be updated on the regular with a variety of topics.

Of course this isn’t  me saying Little Reminders of Love is fin, rather if you can’t wait for newer posts in this corner of the internet (hah!) — head over to annaelizabethallen.com to keep up to date.

"I will keep it safe."

Lately I’ve been spending a good part of nearly every day thinking about love.  Romantic love. The kind of love that involves french kissing and mix tapes and spooning in New York City in the summer when it’s by most people’s standards too disgustingly humid to spoon. The kind of love you wanna bring home to your grandma and say, “Grandma, look at this love! Just look at this LOVE!” 

Lately I’ve been thinking about who I want to love, and how I want to love, and why I want to love the way I want to love, and what I need to learn to love that way, and who I need to become to become the kind of love I want to be…….and when I break it all down, when I whittle it into a single breath, it essentially comes out like this:  Before I die, I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know they need to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer, and be absolutely certain I will keep it safe.  I will keep it safe.  -Andrea Gibson
