About Me

I wish I was a little bit taller. I wish I was a baller. I wish I had a… Oh, hey there! Thanks for checking out my blog! {Guarantee you finished that song lyric, didn’t you?} I’m flattered you would take the time to read about me and all of my shenanigans.

My name is Dawn. I also go by Don, Stinky, Mommy, sometimes the occasional “Hey you”…I guess it just depends on who you ask. I have a lot of interests, thoughts and inspiration, and I want to share them all. With you. Because I know you want to hear about them. Right? Right…

A few fun facts about me:

  • I hate anything grape flavored. Except grapes. And WINE. I love wine!
  • I once had a pet duck. Yes, a duck. (One word: College.)
  • I have a slight obsession with cardigans. All colors, shapes and sizes. I don’t discriminate.

As if I haven’t completely bored you yet, let me give you a behind the scenes look at this little blog name of mine. I stumbled upon the word magpie recently, and found it to be such a quirky, adorable little word. By definition, the word magpie is “used in similes or comparisons to refer to a person who collects things, especially things of little use or value, or a person who chatters idly”. I relate to this word on so many levels. So, after years of searching for the perfect blog name, Modern Magpie was born. And yes I said years. I’m indecisive. Don’t judge me.
