Hi, my name is Ginna (pronounced “Gin-na”) and welcome to My Pretty Pennies!
I live in Raleigh, North Carolina with my husband J and our dog Leia in a little apartment. I love Jesus, antique shopping, decorating, running, dinner parties, TV shows, traveling to foreign places, and a good cup of coffee. I also love to write.
My love for writing started when I got a Lisa Frank diary in the first grade. I started this blog in March 2009 to journal my way out of student loans with a community of other personal finance bloggers. Since becoming debt free, My Pretty Pennies has evolved to a more finance + lifestyle blog where I write about my faith, goals, recipes, healthy living and everyday rambles.
My financial philosophy is simple: you don’t have to be rich to have a rich life. Spend money on things that matter. Experiences over stuff. People over luxuries. God’s kingdom over this world. Money has the power to change, and I think we can all change this world for the better, one pretty penny at a time.
