Perfection Isn't Happy

Lover of oatmeal, exercise and all things chocolate, Emily is the voice behind the healthy living blog, Perfection Isn’t Happy. Her blog is a platform for all topics related to fitness, food, friends and family. She emphasizes that expecting perfection will never bring happiness -- a healthy lifestyle is all about balance.

Outside of the blog world, Emily is a graduate of Indiana University, Indianapolis, with a B.A. in Communication Studies. She is currently pursuing a career in writing.

When she’s not writing, Emily enjoys working out (Zumba, Barre3, spinning, running, and strength training are a few of her favorites), baking, and enjoying married life with her husband.
