Hey y’all! I’m Whitney, the brains behind The Observant Turtle. I’m 27 years old and married to the hunkiest nerd I know, my husband Nick. We met when I was just 17 years old, and I told my friend “one day I’m going to marry that guy.” True story. It just took five years to happen.
We currently live in a suburb of Charlotte, NC after a four year stint in Houston, TX (the BEST queso and fajitas you’ll ever want). We spend most of our time watching movies. We’ve seen almost 40 movies in theaters so far this year.
We are both huge sci-fi and fantasy nerds and love everything from Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica to Harry Potter to Marvel and Star Wars. (One of my goals is to attend San Diego Comic Con one day!)
I also enjoy reading, shopping, doing some amateur handlettering and photography, and figuring out ways to decorate our brand new home.
The Observant Turtle was created in 2011. Originally intended to be a blog on southern culture, I transitioned once learning about the realm of lifestyle blogging. After I left my home state of South Carolina and moved to Texas in 2012, I dove into the blogging world head first. I had no idea how important the blogging community would become. While in Texas I helped create, establish and plan a blog conference and continue to enjoy bringing creatives together.
On this blog, you can expect to find anything from fashion posts to travel posts and even recipes. All the while I’m constantly treading the line of geek and chic, and finding ways to embrace my geekiness in my everyday life.
