This is my very first blog post ever!  I hope to make Our Kind, Dear a cute little blog about all things classy, fun, and preppy.  I know some bloggers do stuff like outfits of the day, selling things, making videos, and other nifty things.  Maybe I'll do some of those, and maybe I won't.  We'll see what happens!

See?  Preppy.  Old money.  Sailing.  Oriental rugs.  Mmm.

First, a little about myself.  My name is Ellie.  I'm a freshman in college who is currently home for Christmas break.  Amid the waves of Christmas cookies spewing out of my oven, lovely fires in my fireplace, and wishing for snow, this blog was birthed.  I have a couple of cats.  I really like tea, fine cheeses, shoes, nail polish, Ray-Bans, watercolor painting, and Lilly Pulitzer.  I have played the violin for 9 years and love theater.  I also think sparkles and plaid are snazzy. 

So, stick around for awhile and I'll write to you about things that are slightly better than other things.
