How To Cultivate a Daily(ish) Journaling Practice

I’ve been journaling for most of my life. I was around eight or nine when I first picked up the habit. I don’t remember what prompted me to start back then, but I do know that it quickly became clear that writing down my thoughts was often much better than holding onto them (especially when …

How I Knew I was Ready for Change (And the Signs You Can Look for Too)

Over the past year, I’ve been trying to cultivate more of an openness to change by recognizing the uncomfortable shift that signals your current comfort zone has grown too tight. I paid close attention to that shift in 2020. Perhaps it was because after a year and a half of wedding prep and job hunting, …

Spring Intentions and Plans for the Season

Hey, guess what? It’s spring! The season of renewal and rebirth. Flowers, sunshine, baby animals. Gardening, fresh vegetables, happy houseplants. You know. If it’s not obvious, I’m feeling a little optimistic and probably way too excited for the new season. I find the changing of the seasons is a wonderful time to reflect, slow down, …

Re-Examining Self-Care A Year Into the Pandemic

It feels wild that it’s been a year since shut downs, since quarantine began, since social distancing became a normal part of our lexicon. It’s been such a year and yet, it’s also only been a year.

My Favorite Planner & How To Find A Planner You Love

Realizing that my life felt like it was constantly on fire drove me to Target in a fit of panic where I found …

A Road Map to Unlocking Your Creativity

For a long time, I didn’t think of myself as particularly creative. I was not a crafty child, always too critical of the way my projects turned out looking versus how I wanted them to look. I considered myself useless when it came to paints, clay, or any amount of decorating. My perfectionist qualities popped …

Book Highlights: 5 Romances to Warm Your Raisinet of a Heart

I’m not a particularly big Valentine’s Day person. Especially since having spent more time in the past year with my boo than possibly… ever, it does seem a little silly to take a day to focus on ~love~ when we pretty much do that all day, every day (quarantine has made us so gross). That …

3 Gentle Practices I’m Committing To This Year

As we approach the longest part of winter, the seemingly never ending (even without a global pandemic) and chilliest part, I find myself facing the fact that this will be the last year I can call myself a “twenty-something.” And while that stirs up some particular…feelings, my birthday has me growing reflective as I do …

The First Post

Beginnings always feel strange. Especially when this is not exactly the beginning, but a regurgitation of past beginnings. The many blogs I’ve created before this have all begun somewhat differently, but one thing they’ve had in common is this feeling of excitement, possibility and freshness that gets me through the somewhat tedious “first post” every …
