• 8,500 Miles Later

    Since September 4th, we’ve traveled 8,500 miles. I’m happy. I’m tired. Chicago, San Diego, Seattle, Bloomington, Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago. We stopped back at home between a couple of those trips and I’m excited to be home for a full month before I go back to Chicago again in November (then the holidays ensue).

  • What I’ve Been Reading

    I recently read three books. Here’s my recap and maybe one of them will spark your interest! Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: It’s non-fiction, it confronts death head on, speaks to the death industry and changed my life!

  • Screenshots on my iPhone

    I realized that most of my photo library on my iPhone is comprised of screenshots. Every few months, I try to create a better bookmarking system. Evernote is always on my top of my list. I’ll Google, “How to use Evernote” or “The Ultimate Evernote Guide.” But no…I’ll continue to screenshot stuff. And then forget about

  • Know Yourself

    We all evolve and change. That’s a fact. For me, personally, I seek out change. I try to learn about others’ stories and experiences, I try my best to read about things I know nothing about and I’m greatly changed daily by my husband (in the best possible way). Last week, Adam and I presented

  • Gallery Recap!

    At the end of July, I hosted a gallery for my 100 paintings! It was humbling and left my floored. I ended up selling 71 of the 100 pieces and I’m still floored. I thought I’d share some photos that other people posted of their visit or their paintings back home. My sister and I also

  • Things I’m Loving

    A quick post to share some of the stuff I’ve been loving lately: Art history + general art books. I just picked this up at Half Priced and am snagging this on Amazon.

  • Celebrating

    I read this article a few months ago that discussed the fact that we don’t celebrate enough. Celebrating things could actually lead to healthier, happier, longer lives. I’ve thought about this article a lot since I first read it. I can get so caught up in running a business or addressing my health that I look

  • #the100dayproject recap

    I did it! I completed #the100dayproject! And now, I have 100 paintings. And I’m happier. If you want to hear all about my experience, check out Elise’s podcast.

    Fun stuff that’s happened recently: Our developer, Matt, flew in to spend a week with us! We hosted a workshop for some dope people to help them through small design and development issues.
