Let’s Get Coffee (or Tea)

Back when I blogged often…oh wait, I am blogging often now. Ahem. Back when I blogged as much as I am currently blogging, I would create this post annually. You can read the posts from 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013. Feel free…Read more

Representation

I grew up in a small Catholic school where 99% of the students (and staff) at my school were white. I loved the Olsen twins, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Celine Dion. I had Barbies, I had Samantha, the rich American…Read more

Things That I Screenshot

On this episode of “quick blog posts that are fun but not really that deep, so what,” I’m sharing things that have made me take a screenshot (on my phone). I’ve done this post before. Read it here. To be…Read more

A Week of Blogging

A few people have asked me how this year’s challenge is going. To be honest, it feels weird. I felt such momentum the last two years. I felt like people honored it and respected it. It’s not that I think…Read more

Gift Giving

At one point in my life, I tested high for “receiving gifts” as one of my love languages. As in, I loved it when people gave me things. The older I get, I’m not sure that’s the case anymore. First…Read more

A Quarter Century

I was six when I stopped being an only child. By then, I was ready for a sibling. For years I had pretended that my stuffed bear was my brother and it really wasn’t cutting it any longer. It took…Read more

And Then I Found Twenty Dollars

My memory is AWFUL. But I remember a few things. I remember watching that documentary about Bill Cunningham years ago and his quote: “If you don’t take money, they can’t tell you what to do, kid. That’s the key to the…Read more

Anticipation

I’m waiting to take some of these plants outside. I’m waiting to sit on our patio, on the weekend, late into the night, sipping bourbon with my favorite people. I’m waiting for my schedule to let up, to have a…Read more

One Of One Hundred

Over the last two years, I’ve returned to this space multiple times to share things close to my heart and on my mind. In 2016, I recapped our travel adventures (and we honestly haven’t traveled much since). It includes one…Read more

Let’s Get Coffee

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…Read more

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. The Pineapple/Strawberry La Croix flavor Primally Pure’s…Read more

How To Be an Introverted Social Butterfly

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…Read more

Lately

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…Read more

Search History Pt 2

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…Read more

The Beauty in Others

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…Read more

A Little Update

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…Read more

The Year of Habits

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…Read more

Habits

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…Read more

Desperately Seeking Hobbies

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…Read more

What’s In My Bag

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…Read more

Our Marriage Is In First Grade!

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…Read more

Kit + Ace in Columbus

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…Read more

Lately

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…Read more

Let’s Get Coffee

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…Read more

Breaking Bread

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…Read more

State of The Capsule

At the end of the summer of 2013, I decided to do the whole “capsule wardrobe thing.” It was starting to become more mainstream, but nothing like it is now. I originally fell in love with the concept after I discovered…Read more
