About Me



Hi my name is Avery Burns, and welcome to my blog! First and foremost, I am married to the most wonderful man, Sam, and we have two beautiful fur babies, Bailey and Button. We live in a barn house on five acres in northern Indiana – and we absolutely love our little life here. It’s funny because I always thought I would live in a penthouse in the city (clearly delusional, I know), but it seems God had other plans for my life!

I am a very proud Saint Mary’s College grad (go ND!). I will be forever grateful for my time spent in South Bend, IN, and for the numerous experiences I had there that have helped shape me into the person I am today. While at Saint Mary’s, I majored in political science, and minored in studio art, intercultural studies, and women’s studies. I absolutely love learning new things, and attending a liberal arts college that allowed me to dabble in many topics was such a wonderful gift. Though I took interest in many different subjects throughout college, I was always extremely intent on becoming one thing, and one thing only – an attorney!

I completed my 1L year last year at the University of Toledo College of Law – my what a year that was! After being involved in two very serious car accidents within a four-month time period during law school, I was forced to take some time off to heal both mentally and physically. Unfortunately (or maybe not!), life has a way of taking twists and turns you never expected. What’s important is how you handle those twists and turns. It’s not always easy, but I choose happiness. I have so much to be grateful for!

Though I doubted for a short time whether I would ever be able to return to law school, with the help of my family, friends, and some amazing doctors – I am back in school! This time though, I have returned home, and I am now at Notre Dame Law School. God has this amazing way of working things out, making dreams come true, and using terrible situations for good.

I am here to share my inspiration about life, decorating and maybe a few pics of my dogs and hubby as I wander through this twisting and turning life. I would love for you to join me on this journey! Thanks so much for stopping by!
