The Post-Vacation Blues

My post-vacation blues are tropical teals and deep ocean blues and seaweed greens. Guys, I just spent the past week in Jamaica and I don’t want to be back. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I missed my family and my quiet bed (the resort’s beds were weirdly loud when trying to get in or [...]

Book Club Nerd

I’m sure this will come as absolutely no surprise to you, but I belong to a book club. And not only do I belong to a book club but as of this past Thursday, I’m one of the three young women who lead our quarterly book club meetings. I led my very first book club [...]

Gray

I had a friend once tell me that you can’t blog every week with a sunny, fun, vomiting rainbows kind of disposition. She told me that it’s not sustainable and not real.
