Welcome to my blog about creating a sweet life. My name is Marissa Sweet. I have had a sweet life, mainly because my last name is Sweet. If it weren’t for the name though, I don’t know as if I would consider my life “sweet”. So far life has been good, but rocky. I have had my ups and downs like everyone else. Hopefully things are starting to even out now though.
This blog is about creating a better life and doing things that make you happy. Personally, I love to read, write, workout, and try new recipes. I love wine, cheese, and am addicted to coffee. I love my family, I love my friends, I love my boyfriend, and I love my little dog, Leo. These are the things that make me happy! My goal is to share as much information about what makes me happy, in the hopes that these things can make you happy too. After all, a happy life is a successful life.
So, a little more about me…I am 30 years old. I work as an attorney specializing in personal injury defense. I live with my boyfriend, Mike, and our dog, Leo, in a beautiful house outside of Buffalo, New York. I have two loving and supportive parents who have been married for 33 years and have three children. I have a younger sister and a younger brother. I have a HUGE extended family and am blessed with a small, but intimate group of friends who are like family.
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” – Marilyn Monroe
I am certainly no Marilyn Monroe, but the quote could not be more fitting for who I am and how I live my life. I know my weaknesses, but I am proud of who I am and know that everyone deserves to be happy. Everyone deserves a sweet life.
