Mother's Day gift ideas - gift box set.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. The older I get, the more I love and appreciate celebrating Mother’s Day and giving my mom the thanks and appreciation she deserves.  I know my mom would want nothing more than to have me come home each year during Mother’s Day weekend, but that’s not always possible.

Gift Guide: Mother’s Day Ideas

I  think we all let out a big sigh of relief when the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve. I know that literally nothing has changed but it really feels like an accomplishment to say that we survived 2020. Here’s the thing though, 2020 was a turning point for me personally. It shed some […]

Setting Intentions for 2021

Christmas looks a whole lot different this year. Some traditions aren’t taking place, like pictures with Santa or ice skating downtown,  and of course holiday pop-ups and bar crawls look a whole lot different this year. But the holidays are always magical, regardless of the climate of our country.  So even though public events aren’t […]

Socially Distanced Holiday Activities

We are half-way through October and that means the count down to Halloween is on! While fall is forever my favorite season, I’ve really come to love the spooky vibes during the month of October. Scary movies, haunted houses with friends, and silly (sometimes gross) decorations? I can get on board with that. Of course […]

Spooky Season

We’ve been in quarantine for 60 days. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sick of hanging out with myself. 60 days alone is a lot to handle and there’s only so much Netflix you can binge before your eyes get blurry and your couch has a permanent dent in it – let’s be […]

Bored in the House…in the House Bored

This past weekend I had my friends and followers on Instagram ask me questions. I figured I would take the time to answer them here, since many of them were very similar. I know I often post about my favorite places or things, but I rarely speak on my every day life. Plus this will serve as a great life update for those that are close to me – since I’m the absolute worst at Facebook statuses and (apparently) phone calls.

Q&A – Life Update

For some reason as this birthday approached, I became a little more sentimental than usual.. more reflective. I thought about writing a letter to my younger self (yes, I know… cheesy) but I realized that some of the most important life lessons I’ve learned haven’t come from life-altering situations, but instead, small moments. So instead of writing a long sappy letter to myself – I figured why not make a list of all the things, big and small, that have made an impact on my every day life so far. 

25 things I’ve learned in 25 Years

When I was younger, I had this idea of what a successful woman looked like. She wore a pencil skirt and sat at a big desk in her coveted corner office all day… (think Cameron Diaz in any movie she’s ever been in)  But fast forward to present day, and my idea of a successful woman looks very different. She is strong yes, but she is also gentle, she is intentional, and she has a sparkle that seems contagious. She might not have a corner office, she might not even work in an office. But she is successful because her goals are being achieved and her dreams are being chased.
