I've had a specific adoration for the word 'lovely' for a long time. It's such a good word. I got called lovely today (in an Instagram comment lol) and my heart sang. Afterward, I knew I had to sit down and write a little blurb about this adjective. If you look up the definition the … Continue reading Lovely
Why is moving on to a new chapter so difficult sometimes? Even when you’ve secretly been waiting in anticipation to turn the page. My time in Colorado is up and I’m trying to not be too dramatic about it. Talk about a mixed basket of emotions. My time in Colorado was wonderful in a lot … Continue reading My ‘part 2’
Yeah, it was probably overdue but I finally visited a counselor. I found out about a year ago that my insurance pays for 8 visits with a licensed counselor. I put it off for a year despite knowing that I definitely should take advantage of those free visits. However, one night I finally called our insurance … Continue reading My first visit to a therapist
I think everyone knows it is just impossible to see everything you want to see in New York City in just one trip. It is definitely impossible with only 48 hours. However, you can get a lot done in that time frame and that is just what myself, Megan and our other friend Cassandra set … Continue reading NYC in 48(ish) Hours

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I hope everyone's holiday season or, if you don't celebrate, your December is off to a wonderful start. Last year I took about a month(ish) long break (approx. 3 posts) from the blog to spend time with family and friends and wrap up the year peacefully. So … Continue reading The Holidays are here!
I have been on the hunt for a natural deodorant (without aluminum) for a couple years now. I always end up bouncing back to Dove when I wind up stinky and sweaty around noon. So this year, I kicked my hunt up a notch and I've tried 5 different brands each over several weeks to … Continue reading Natural deodorant: does it actually work?
It was a rough year for me and I don't like to speak for others but I would guess it was a rough year for a lot of people. However, one thing in life I really try to remember is there is always something to be grateful for. My favorite book of all time, A … Continue reading Things I was thankful for in 2018

I recently got a new phone with portrait mode so the number of photos of my dog on my phone increased by approximately 200%. Enjoy. Hope you didn't mind the slight deviation this … Continue reading Some cute pictures of my dog
