Welcome to my little corner of the web and thank you for visiting! I’m Kelly and I love sweets, travel & adventures, getting up early, fresh flowers, taking pictures (of everything), sleep, and finding new coffee shops.
Just a Sliver originally started as a baking blog and was inspired by my Grandma who always says, “I’ll have dessert, but just a sliver!” She’s 94, still only wears skirts (never, ever pants) and is a fiery inspiration of what living the right way looks like. Since I launched in 2012, this space has transformed from Just a Sliver of baking recipes to Just a Sliver of life. Recently, I’ve been forced to hit the ultimate “reset” button which means this personal space to write about anything and everything important to me, is more valuable than ever. I’m incredibly excited and slightly nervous to be starting fresh this Spring in one of my favorite cities, Chicago!
I am an event planner by day[stop by Kelly Strong Events!] and adventurer on the weekends. Excited to be in a new city, I’m always looking for restaurants, fitness studios, and coffee shops to try.
Originally from upstate New York; I have lived in Northern California, Germany, Manhattan, Vermont, Cleveland, Italy, Connecticut and Toronto since graduation from the University of Vermont. Currently living in Chicago’s Lincoln Park and loving every second of this city.
Thank you for following along and I hope you will continue to join me on this new adventure.
