about me

Hi there, and welcome to Refining Bliss! I'm Claire.

I am a graduate public health student at the best university in the country, where wine and craft supplies help me de-stress from my crazy schedule. 

My favorite spot on campus

Traveling is one of my favorite activities; the list of places I want to visit is seemingly endless. I love picnics, baking, and Fall. Shopping is dangerously fun, and Netflix is dangerously addicting. I think that one of the most beautiful sounds is the sound of laughter. 

Here at Refining Bliss, you can find posts about family, relaxation, and my day-to-day life as I try to find a happy balance between graduate school, work, and me time. 

I'm so glad that you've decided to join me on my journey. I hope that at some point, my experiences bring you happiness, insight, and laughter. Grab a cup of tea, a glass of wine, or a mug of hot cocoa and enjoy, blissfully.
