I don’t know how to begin writing this. I don’t want to put words in the mouth of my black friends. I don’t want to pretend that the outrage I feel is even close to the outrage that my friends of color feel. But I’m angry. And my heart hurts. And the world just feels […]
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 […]
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.

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.
