Hi there! I hope you’re having a good week so far! John & I celebrated our 5 year anniversary (of dating, not married yet!) on Tuesday. It was definitely the highlight of my week! We went to a little Mexican restaurant with cute outdoor seating. We drank a pitcher of margaritas & daydreamed about where [...]

Stay tuned soon though, I have some fun fashion & beauty blog posts coming your way! Feeling so much hope & good things on the horizon! This weekend, [...]
Tips for Becoming a (Reluctant) Morning Person!
I’ve always been a night owl. I love staying up late & sleeping in, & it’s been my default my whole life. My grandpa always used to tell me that my ideal work day would be between noon-8 pm; he was totally right! I teach 2nd grade, which isn’t exactly conducive to sleeping in or [...]
Don’t Let Others Dim Your Light
I’m sending you love on this gloomy Monday. I hope your week is as wonderful as you are! Happy (ish?) Monday! We have NO control over other people; what they say, what they do, how they interpret things you say or do. We can only control our own reactions. That’s easier said than done, but [...]

I couldn’t be more thankful for these guys! When we went back to school in the fall, I started setting weekly intentions for myself. This felt like a good way to be gentle with myself & not to feel too much pressure while teaching. It felt comforting & productive while not overwhelming. I really recommend [...]
I’m Proud of Myself
This was a difficult year! There is so much to be proud of. Acknowledging my accomplishments isn’t something that comes easily to me. I’m not sure if it’s something women are conditioned (thanks, patriarchy!) or if it’s something else, but I rarely discuss my accomplishments or things I’m proud of myself for. I wanted to [...]
My Current Favorite Ways to Unwind During Stressful Times
Theo & Phoebe hope you have a beautiful, restful holiday season! Even in 2020, the holiday season can definitely add some stress. Making COVID-safe plans, online shopping for the perfect gift, work stress. It’s a lot! I’ve been feeling especially stressed due to grad school assignments. It’s important to find ways to unwind & relax. [...]
Making The Most Of The Holidays This Year
I’ll most likely be living in comfy clothes this holiday season! Sweatshirts, baking cookies, pet snuggles. So cozy! The holiday season is different this year. There’s no getting around it; maybe you’re doing a socially distant Thanksgiving, or you’re celebrating Christmas just with your household. Maybe you’re used to cooking for an army of people, [...]
