emily the blogger


Hello there!


Welcome to my blog and the inter-workings of my mind.

Yes, my name is Emily.  Most people that come across this site assume my name is Jessi.
Jessi was my best friend, and you can read all about her and why she was the inspiration for this blog years ago here.

Anyway… my name is Emily.


I am from Houston, Texas.  I currently live in Colorado.

I am a certified personal trainer and dance teacher.

I love anything that gets my body moving.

I love creating in the kitchen, mostly sweets and treats.

Small talk bores me.

I am in my twenties, but I’m pretty sure my soul has been around for a century, as those close to me would suggest…


I have been STRUGGLING to write this about me page, because I DON’T KNOW what YOU want to know about me.  So…

Please e-mail me at journeyforjessi.com or leave a comment or DM on my instagram @emvalerioti.

I will round up these Q&A’s and add to them below!

Quick Quirks:

  • Dog person
  • Taurus
  • INFJ
  • Breakfast and dessert are my favorite meals.
  • Summer soul–I don’t do cold very well.
  • Pineapples are my favorite fruit.
  • I can touch my tongue to my nose.
  • I go upside down at least once a day.
  • Books, books, books
  • Avid podcast listener
  • I always have a journal and pen with me.
  • Peace, love, rock n’ roll.  And Punk.  And Alternative. Punk Rock?  Perfect.
