Hello! My name is Ginna (pronounced “Gin-na”) and that handsome fella next to me is my husband, whom I affectionally refer to as “J” on here. We live in Raleigh, NC, with the best dog ever, Leia. Those two have my heart.
I have many loves. Like the blue ridge mountains. BBC’s version of Pride & Prejudice. Book reading on a rainy day. Tackling projects in our new house. Exploring cities. A really good cup of coffee. Lingering hours around dining tables long after the meal has been eaten.
My Pretty Pennies is a blog I started in March 2009 to journal my way out of student loans with a community of other personal finance bloggers. Since I became debt free, this space has evolved to a more finance + lifestyle blog where I write about my faith, goals, recipes, healthy living, home projects 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.
Thanks so much for visiting this little corner of the Internet — please feel free to contact me with any questions!
