March Goals

So I started this New Year slightly differently. And how was that, you might be wondering to yourself? Well, I didn’t create my typical list of goals or resolutions for the New Year. Yes, me. . .the list queen. And I didn’t make a single one. In recent years, I have surprisingly found myself being […]

My Year Ahead

In years past, the start of the New Year has often been a time for me to reflect, review. . .and then plan, plan, plan. And while I do really love the idea of creating a list of goals for the New Year, personally, I am finding myself in a different place this year. The […]

9 Things

Well to be honest, it’s been quite some time since I have updated my 101 in 1001 list.  Or frankly, have even thought about it.  But Ryan sweetly reminded me a few weeks ago that I should take a look at it again, and I figured that he was right. As I read through my […]

Being A Libra

I’m a Libra.  I was born on September 25th, and I seem to find myself pretty in line with most of the Libra characteristics.  Especially the most widely, and easily recognized, balance.  A scale is the astrological sign for a Libra, representing the desire to keep balance, and yep, that’s definitely me. I love the […]

50 Questions

Roughly two years ago I wrote a blog post (Free Your Mind) about an article that I had come across.  The article was a mental exercise of sorts in self-discovery – 50 questions that you are supposed to answer without hesitation.  There are no right answers, and there are no wrong answers.  It is simply […]

Being the Author

One of the most thought-provoking ideas that I have come across lately, is the concept that you need to be the author of your own life.  I think that this is something that I have thought about in different ways for a long time, but never so clearly.  Be the author of your life.  Narrate […]


So I can’t almost believe this, but to be honest, I think that it has been years since I have done a “Lately” post on the blog.  (Insert my bulging eyes and shocked face here.)  I had always loved doing these posts as a way to catch you guys up with everything going on in […]

Project: Gallery Wall

So guys, I know that I’ve mentioned this before, but when it comes to basically doing anything in life, I am typically either full-steam ahead, or slightly dragging my feet and putting things off.  I’m either super clean or sometimes (and I hate to admit this, but it’s true), happily messy.  I can be perfectly […]


For whatever reason, I have recently thought several times of a dinner conversation that we had one night a few months ago at my parents’ house.  We were all talking about what books we had recently read, and which ones we would suggest reading.  When the question was directed at me, I was immediately animated […]

The Itch

I’ve heard it called a lot of different things around town, but for me, I think that I’ve got a bad case of the seven year itch.  I can’t almost believe that I am about to say this. . .but. . .I’ve been feeling a little bit sick of San Diego lately.  I know, shocking, […]
