We made it! One month married. It feels like just yesterday and forever all in one. Things are slowing down now and I’ve finally had some moments to reflect (when I’m not tearing up at how magical it was and how thankful I feel) on our special, special days in Hawaii. I have quite a… Read More Married!
10 days into the new year and I’ve purposefully been holding off on putting my new 2018 word into the universe. I had some trouble choosing a word this year, with all that 2017 had to offer and throw at us, it was a little daunting looking into 2018. Then on the cold morning of… Read More One Word For 2018: HARMONY
I wrote this post two days before I turned 30. When I still felt like a somewhat innocent twenty-something. While I had to have a come-to-Jesus moment with myself to cross into this new decade, something clicked when I woke up that morning. I finally felt like I could own my power as a female… Read More Bulletproof and LOUD
Palm Springs. A private 1920’s hotel. Perfect weather. California glamor. Synchronized swimmers. Coozies. Flowers and palms. Pretty much all you need to know about the one of a kind wedding of my friend Ellen that we were lucky enough to get to attend a few months ago. It’s Valentine’s Day, and I thought, why not… Read More Palm Springs In The Name of Love
You can pack a lot of punches into twelve months. If someone would have told me last January 12th that the next day I would go on a date with my soul mate and never look back, I would have been so excited. (Warning, this is a sappy, sappy post.) I was already excited to… Read More The Journey of a Year
“Freedom, by definition, is people realizing they are their own leaders.” – Diane Nash I’ve recently felt like I shouldn’t be writing or posting because there are so many other more important things happening in our world right now. Writing all about me seemed selfish, like I didn’t deserve the right to do it when things… Read More A self help post for my tiny crumb of the interwebs: do better.
I wanted to post these precious pictures of this baby that I happen to love very much tonight, because right now, the world could use a little sweetness added to it. Last month I got the amazing experience of taking this cutie’s photo. About 1,000 times. Along with some candid moments with his grandparents… Read More Baby Callan’s American Adventure
At Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters in the Crossroads District of downtown Kansas City, go for the coffee, but stay for the cocktails. When I was there recently sitting at the bar, I watched the bartender making a delicately beautiful drink, so of course I had to ask him what it was. Turns out it was… Read More Move Over Saint Valentine, St. Germain Is My Valentine
Since I was just talking about my love for October, my birthday month, I should also point out that a good handful of my best friends also have October birthdays. Katie, Emily, Ro… and I could go on. Since Emily’s was yesterday, I thought this would be a great time to show the world the… Read More Welcoming Baby Newell: A Book Themed Baby Shower
A couple of weeks ago I panicked. I searched for tickets to the Moon River Music Festival and found that even a week before the event, it was sold out completely. I had my heart set on going, and I was mad at myself for procrastinating. I started madly searching discount ticket sites to no avail.… Read More The weather here is like a nice big warm hug: Moon River Music Festival and a tangent on my love of the river. And music. And music on the river
