Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog!

About Me

I’m Erica, a biomedical scientist and public health educator/program evaluator by training, and the blogger behind Joy and Sunshine. Like many people, I wear a lot of hats on a daily basis and have gone through a bit of trial and error to find out what works well for me. This blog is essentially an ongoing description of those things – sprinkled with some personal style (to justify using shopping as my preferred form of exercise…oh, how I love it) – all in an effort to save you some time and provide a little creative inspiration and humor during your busy day.

Story behind the Name of the Blog

When my now-husband and I were dating, he made some flippant statement (can’t remember exactly what it was), and I told him, “Please. You know I am the joy and the sunshine of your life!” He said, “You are!” We both cracked up, and it’s been a running joke – and sometimes my nickname – since.

Style and Fashion Philosophy

My personal style tends towards things classic and a bit preppy. I like the way quality, classic pieces mix well with newer things season after season. I never get rid of well-fitting items I love: they might go into storage, but they always come back 🙂
