  • 2018: A Year to Simplify

    Hopes, dreams, wishes, plans, resolutions; whatever you call them, the start of the new year is always the sweetest time to write these desires of our hearts down. For me? I always seem to have a hard time getting them down on paper before January 1st, but having a January birthday, I always feel like I’ve got a two week… [Continue Reading]

  • Fall Recipes to Keep You Cozy

    With snow on the ground & the leaves all long gone, it seems like we’ve made the abrupt transition to winter here in the upper Midwest.

  • Why I Ditched My Capsule Wardrobe

    Remember that little “experiment” I did last fall? Yeah, so….it really didn’t go too well, let’s just say I didn’t exactly finish my challenge. But in all seriousness, over the last (almost) year since that wild-haired idea, I’ve found a much better way to do things.

25

Today is my last day as a 24-year-old. This past year was significant. Not in any ways I would have ever been prepared for or expected, but in a beautiful, messy, painful, glorious and unique way. As soon as I turned 24, I had a distinct feeling that this would be a year of major changes in my life.  Oh…

Confessions of a Recovering Perfectionist

There are so many problems with the word perfect, the standard of perfectionism, and the life of a perfectionist. To reach for perfectionism is one of the most unattainable, disappointing, and heart breaking standards out there. It leaves us empty handed and let down.

My Summer Story

After almost two months of no writing, I was kind of hoping for some kind of epic return to the blogging world. So I’ve waited and waited, hoping that words would come to me, or ideas would flood my mind, or maybe, just maybe my creative spark would be reignited….but no words magically came to me overnight, no ideas rushed into…

Indescribable Joy

Well, it’s been a while. A month and a half of lots of ups, plenty of downs, some in-betweens, new adventures, endless to-do lists, a life abundant in change, and a heart lavished with blessings and joy.

Simplicity

There is something so special about leaving behind the daily duties of life, the endless to-do lists, the heavy weight of responsibility…and trading it all in for the freedom that a few days of simplicity can bring.
