The State Of The Studio

We’ve occupied our studio for over 4 years now and we’ve slowly made it our own. Last year we renovated our conference room with the help of Mix Design Collective and we love it so much. You can see a…Read more

A Tuesday In The Life

Day-to-day, my life is always different. But certain days of the week tend to be similar. If you want to read more about how I handle my schedule, you can read it here. I documented what I did today, a Tuesday.…Read more

Pin It (But Not On Pinterest)

This little DIY project has been a long time coming. I’ve wanted a corkboard somewhere in the studio for awhile. We have a larger one in our bathroom where we pin fun things from people, business cards and letters. A…Read more

Back in the Kitchen

I cooked every meal this weekend. I was much less social. I feel energetic, I ate whole foods. I struggle with being back in the kitchen because, due to the size of our home (and lack of dining room), that…Read more

Practicing Gratitude

I struggle with practicing gratitude. While I’m not a pessimistic person, I feel like my brain can bulldoze through the small things that make life grand. I’m working to practice gratitude, just like I would if I were trying to…Read more

I’ll Be Here This Weekend Cooking

One thing that bonds me and my dad is our love of food. We aren’t picky eaters. We’d probably try anything you sat in front of us. We send each other photos of our food and we love watching food…Read more

Another edition of things that are interesting! You can read the first volume here and the second volume here. 1. I’ve been really loving the Bite Beauty’s lipstick shade Lit Turmeric (that name kills me). Here it is on. 2.…Read more

Thumbless?

We’ve been spoiled lately with cooler weather. I wore a sweatshirt and jeans tonight! Adam’s parents visited today and landscaped a lot of our back patio (and the front yard, too) and it makes such a difference. It’s something that I…Read more

This Is All I’ve Got

I had 8 hours of straight meetings (not even a lunch break!) today and this is all I’ve got. I have no wisdom. No witty captions. No insight. No revelations. I’m watching House Hunters. Need I say more?Read more

Keeping My Word

I found a few grey hairs. When I was 16-years-old, I was buying some makeup at Target and the cashier said, “Aw that’s so cute! You have a purse.” When I was 21-years-old, I drove down to Florida for spring break…Read more

A Community

Tonight we went to our friend Brandi’s book launch. You can buy it here or read my post about it here. It was so amazing to see so many people in the community there supporting her. So many people who…Read more

In front of you

Earlier today, we walked over to Alchemy for a this amazingness. It was hot but it was home. After traveling for two weeks, I’be crushed harder on Columbus. Don’t get me wrong, my travel bug is worse. But home is…Read more

Almost Two Years

I felt like I was really thriving two years ago. But that’s my personality and wiring talking. I was thriving in specific ways but not as a whole person. So what was up with 2016 you may ask? I was…Read more

When You Grow Up

I’ve been hopping from state to state over the past two weeks. To New York, then Indiana, back to Ohio and then on the hottest day of the year (So far…101 degrees!!) I drove to Illinois to see my family.…Read more

My Pup Is 9!

To the little pup who’s brought me so much joy over the last 9 years. I can’t believe Desh is 9-years-old! When we got married in 2009, we lived in Columbus and I didn’t have a job. Newly married, I…Read more

Back When You Were A Kid

What did you do when you were a kid? How did you spend your time? I’ve been asked this question before. “What did you enjoy as a kid? Do more of that.” I think it’s an amazing exercise to work…Read more

Overnight in Indianapolis

Last week we took a quick 2.5 hour roadtrip to Indianapolis for a client presentation and to see Fleet Foxes in concert. Both reasons for the visit were superb but we also ate some great food and had some amazing…Read more

Skincare + Makeup Update

About two weeks ago, I posted about some recent skincare/makeup purchases. As promised, here are my thoughts: 1. Hourglass Veil powder : It’s official – I can never tell the difference between setting powders. They all seem the same to me!…Read more

Helplessness Blues

We saw Fleet Foxes tonight in Indianapolis and I only teared up three times. The last song sings: “I was raised up believing I was somehow unique Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see…Read more

Free Food For Millionaires

I started this book on my birthday (May 9th) and just finished it last night. While the paperback doesn’t feel too long, it was over 560 pages, I believe. The characters were very real and predominately Korean or Korean-American. I…Read more

Taking Vacation Home

After every trip, I try to make a list of ways to take it home with me. Each trip teaches me something new. Sometimes lessons overlap. Reminders versus new revelations. Other times, a trip can reinforce why you do what…Read more

New York in May

We planned a trip to New York for my birthday, just a little belated. I first spent time in the city when I was just shy of 21. It was a college trip and all things centered around art. All…Read more

Adam Has Ruined Coffee For Me

If you didn’t know, Adam roasts his own coffee. Besides his amazing presence in my life, the coffee that he roasts has changed my life. I’ve not tasted anything so delicious. That’s great, right? Because I have access to him…Read more

My Relationship With Photography

Sometimes I spend time browsing old photographs that I’ve taken. The photos that I look at remind me of a time in my life where I had my DSLR at home or when I actively kept a roll of film in my…Read more

Let Me Tell You A Story

There have been many times that Adam and I have faced a crossroad in our business. We recently recorded a podcast about advice we’ve been given that didn’t suit us (I think it goes up next week). We’ve been told…Read more
