Blogging on The Brightside

"I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." -The Little Engine That Could


This blog was started by two ordinary people. Two people who care. A lot. About you. We have decided that at the risk of sounding cliché and altogether sappy, we’re here for you. Sometimes we give you a quote, sometimes we give you a task, sometimes a thought or an anecdote, but always, we hope to inspire you along your journey. You’re here for a reason… and we’re here to make sure you realize it.

We studied together at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP ’11) and met while participating in Mortarboard.  Carly is currently teaching third grade in Pennsylvania.  Ray is a product and marketing analyst in Atlanta.
