2016 in Review

Best summarized as: wedding, adventures, and outfits. (Always outfits.) I’m 100% looking forward to having a little more breathing room in 2017 and am closing out the year with a full heart and gratitude. 2016 was a rough one in too many ways, but there was so much good that happened too. For that, I am thankful.

20 in 2015

Hi there. It’s been awhile.

In solving a tech problem for a friend today, I decided to hop on over here and take look under the hood. In my drafts folder, I found this partial post with a photo recap of 2014. Looking at these photos almost took my breath away because it seems like life has changed so dramatically, and I was inspired to share. The original, unedited post follows.



Since 2010, I’ve done a 20 Things list where I detail 20 things I’d like to accomplish for the year. 2014 was filled with some real big curveballs, like meeting the most amazing man and transitioning to living on my own again. I can’t say that I accomplished all—or even most—of the things on my 2014 list, but onward. Upward! Here’s to 2015.

20 14 in 2015

  1. Start the day without technology.
  2. Complete kitchen redecoration project.
  3. Reconnect with my creative side.
  4. Learn to make a mean macaron.
  5. Spend more time with my family.
  6. Send snail mail to my grandparents.
  7. Reupholster that accent chair that desperately needs it.
  8. Host a game night! (Play more.)
  9. Be better about birthdays (I’m the worst.)
  10. New cultural experiences.
  11. Invest in the future.
  12. Get the crack in my windshield fixed (ghetto!)
  13. Bring love and light to every situation.
  14. Be above the influence of societal norms.

Curious about years prior? Check out 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.


Casual Kicks

13 April 2015

This post is promoted by DSW. Finally, a trend I can really get behind. I think just about every post I’ve written in the last year has highlighted the fact that I’m obsessed with looks that are casual, comfortable and most importantly, easy. I don’t like anything contrived. And I definitely don’t like feeling like […]

Big Buffalo Plaid

8 April 2015

This may be the most extreme example of oversized, and I’m loving it. I bought this dress on Poshmark, and when I first pulled it out of the box at #PMHQ, we were all shocked! We held it up, and both Maria AND myself could fit behind it, no problem. Even I (queen of loose […]
