How quickly life can get oh so messy. Here's where we stand at 3pm on a Saturday. Baby snoozed 5 minutes in the car, so she refused a nap for an hour and a half. Meals have been more stress than enjoyment the last few days. Teething, craving independence, frustration with being unable to communicate?… Continue reading Embrace the beautiful mess of life.
Do you ever get the feeling that you have too many projects and you're not even scratching the surface of achieving anything with any of them? It's creeping close to a year since I have spent time on this blog and considering writing has always been one of my biggest passions, I can't help but… Continue reading A year full of projects, plans, and passions.
So the original plan was to make my way through a cookbook. When I couldn't find one I truly loved, I decided instead to tackle Pinterest recipes - 300 to be exact. Pinterest quickly became an obsession. How perfect to have all my bookmarks in one place visually! But too often, items are pinned and… Continue reading Cook those recipes!
So this blog began about a year and a half ago with the motivation to complete a 30 before 30 list. Now it's twelve days until I turn 30 and I never could have guessed I would be sitting in an apartment I share with the love of my life, in a suburban city, watching our… Continue reading New motivations, the same passions.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BOuSbwEh1Dc Happy January 1 - the day of cliches, nostalgic look-backs, and often empty promises. That said, here's my contribution to the new year. 2016 was quite a different year than I expected. December of 2015, I sat down and wrote this big list of goals for the following year. I couldn't shake the fact… Continue reading I’ve already decided that 2017 is going to be ridiculously amazing.
Sometimes it's a hell of a lot easier to say no in life, but that leads to one without stories, without laughter, and without love. https://www.instagram.com/p/4K8M8cmJWC/
I'm still looking for that carefree, happy girl I used to be. I know it'd be better to stop searching for her and she'll more likely come back to me. But if I do that, I'm afraid I'll get lost in the day to day monotony. Work. Bills. Drinks. So how to escape that monotony?… Continue reading Breathe and focus, beautiful girl.
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/78039006016086556/ When I first stumbled upon this quote, I silently screamed to myself, "yes, hell yes!" Then I shared it with anyone that would listen. And honestly, no one seemed nearly as excited. But more than a year later, I'm still silently screaming my excitement. Be yourself. Love yourself. And who cares about anyone… Continue reading Be you. So perfectly.
Why do I write here, for all to see? Why not just keep a personal journal of my experiences? My aim is to share and hopefully inspire. To find others who feel a passion for living outside the normal. To encourage others to forgo the expected. There is so much life to live outside the… Continue reading Hello reader. How are you today?
I can be such a hypocrite sometimes. Here I am, constantly preaching to seize the day and try new experiences and absolutely love life and what am I doing? Working 12 hour days and sitting on the couch on my days off because I'm "so tired" and "stressed". No, no, no. I know life is… Continue reading Life is an adventure.
