Once or twice a year, I do a “Let’s Get Coffee” post. It’s a fun way to meet my readers, it turns my comment section into a long list of dope stuff and even allows my readers to meet each other! I ask FIVE questions (and I answer them, too) and then ask you to
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. The Pineapple/Strawberry La Croix flavor Primally Pure’s Fancy Face Serum Mini canvases to paint on! Writing notes, sending mail + gift giving
This summer has been very social for me. Adam’s cousin Isabelle (who’s amazing) is living with us while she is interning for The Wonder Jam, we’ve had our friends Meghan and David visited (and Meghan came again for a week later during the summer), our developer, Matt, came and stayed with us for another week, we’ve had three
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. It was a great way for our entire team to work together! We hosted a party celebrating The Wonder Jam‘s 3rd birthday. You
A few years ago, I shared what was on my search history. Here’s round 2: What does THOT mean (it means That Ho Over There) Pink clouds in the air (next painting inspo) Is there an app to control a Keynote (searched that right before a speaking gig) She’s The Man quotes How much did Broderick
I’ve been taking photos of other people for over a decade. My portrait sessions have allowed me to meet so many new people. I’ve shot some of my best work during these moments. It’s a thrill to experience the perfect light, find that amazing angle and create an image that really seems to capture someone’s soul and personality. I’ll get goosebumps during
It’s been a hard few weeks hasn’t it? The loss of life has been felt throughout the world, here in my country and among my tighter circle of friends. While it certainly puts things into perspective, it also leaves me feeling very unclear. Very sad. More bold. Still confused. Lately I’ve been hosting events and friends
I’ve decided that this year is the year of forming habits. I turn 29 years old in four days so it seems fitting. I’ve been on the candida diet for 118 days now and I’ve been painting every day for the past 17 days. When #the100dayproject is over on July 27, what will I choose
We’re 60 days into 2016. For me, the year has been about creating and kicking habits. Doing things every day until it becomes second nature. Here are a few ways I’ve changed: I cook every meal at home since being on the candida diet. And yes! I am so anti-social! I need to start hosting
Two things sparked this post. A video of Lady Gaga talking about how she almost quit music two years ago. But she took a step back and decided to stop doing things she didn’t want to do. Not more selling perfume. No more rubbing shoulders with people she didn’t like. Creativity was getting the backseat
I’ve had this weird fear lately. I fear movies, new tv shows, and fiction literature. I know, right? I told you it was weird. Most people assume it’s because I think it’s stupid, silly or a waste of time. I started to believe them! But that’s false because I finally figured out it. Like you
I haven’t blogged in over three months. That might be the longest stretch yet! A lot has happened since my last post (we’ll expand on that later and no…I’m not pregnant) but for now, I thought I’d share about my newest adventure. I’m earnestly seeking a hobby. Or three. Rewind about two decades and you’d
This is the most typical post of the blogging world. But IDGAF. I always think it’s interesting to see what’s in people’s houses, purses + studios. Who doesn’t? I bought this backpack at Nordstrom Rack earlier this year because I hate carrying all the weight on one shoulder. It’s big enough to carry my large
Our marriage turned six this summer. I’ve known Adam for ten. Time flies when you’re having fun, running a business, traveling and more. Somehow marriage is the easiest and the hardest thing. I don’t know how it’s possible to be both. But it is. Adam is so much of what I want to be. Patient, thoughtful and self-sacrificing.
Kit and Ace recently came to Columbus (the Short North, specifically) and while I couldn’t attend their launch party, I did recently get to visit! The instant I walked in I knew this was my type of place. The interior is minimal and they use copper as an accent. Helllooooo! Yes, please!
It’s already mid-July and I don’t even feel like we’ve had a summer yet. It’s rained for almost a month straight and so on the days we do see the sun, we’re always scrambling to sit outside on a patio, our front porch or open the windows. Since it’s been raining a lot, I’ve been eating
I do these posts every few months because after awhile I feel like I’m blogging (or lack thereof) to faceless ghosts. I like to share some random things and updates and then ask you to do the same. I have some fun content coming up this month including a series on doing a few upgrades around our
Making friends as an adult can be weird. When I first moved to Columbus in 2009, I found all my friends via Twitter. Well, who am I kidding? This is still true. Just add Instagram to the list. I spent a lot of time in 2009 partaking in a lot of small talk. It was brutal.
