Kristine Hughes - Blog


Born & raised on Long Island, New York; Wife, mom-to-be, dog mom and lover of all things creative. Former high school English teacher, current law firm marketing associate. Etsy shop owner and creator.

A little bit about me: I graduated from my undergraduate studies at SUNY Albany in 2004, graduated from my master’s program at Hofstra University in 2007, got married to the love of my life, James, in May of 2013, and currently living on Long Island. Dog mom to the sweetest boxer ever, Bentley and a fun-loving bull puggle named Lambo (short for Lamborghini). I love working out and being active, but I’m also obsessed with delicious food and drinks. Lover of adventures, to-do lists, DIY projects, champagne and taco nights.

When it comes to writing, I have been capturing life’s moments since I was a teenager. Through my diaries and short stories, I was always jotting things down, hoping to create a larger dialogue. My hope is that this blog will inspire you to create something of your own, start something new and always remember to treasure life’s simple moments.
