To Do

What to do this weekend?

Whole 30

Last summer I completed The Whole 30.  I had been meaning to post my experiences but time just got away from me.  As I reread this, I’m reminded just how good I felt!  Today, in December, and 22 weeks pregnant, I have pretty much gone back to my old ways, but not entirely.  The Whole 30 definitely taught me so much and gave me so many tools that I still incorporate today.  Anyway, I give you my, long overdue, Whole 30 experience!  

Our Planned Surprise

Balance & Realization

So you know that little package I got in the mail? Well… I. Kept. Everything. And you know what?  I’m not sorry. I kept the purple sweater, the skirt that fits just right, the button down shirt for work (with a sleeve length only a tailor could accomplish), the perfect cardigan (with POCKETS!) and even…

Minimalist Confessions

The mindfulness that comes with minimalism can be exhausting sometimes!  Or is that just me? Either way, I still have to say, it’s totally worth it.

12

The day I said I would be your girlfriend 12 years ago today, was the best decision I ever made.
