Does anyone else get as much pleasure as I do from reading about the mundane aspects of other peoples’ lives? No? Just me? Okay, cool (ha). As I recently mentioned, I’m obsessed with Refinery 29’s “Money Diaries” feature – partly because I find it fascinating to see what other people spend their money on on a … More A Day in the Life: Long Weekend
Happy New Year, friends! Here are some things I’m digging this January… My bathrobe: Jeff and I gifted each other hotel-style white terry bathrobes for Christmas this year, and it’s been a real game-changer, at least on my end. I use that sucker every single day. Our bathroom is freezing cold, so I wrap myself … More Digging
I thought I’d share a few shots of our home from this holiday season. Merriest of merrys to all!
Here’s what I’m digging this week… Money Diaries: I’m obsessed with this feature from Refinery 29. They interview a huge variety of women (usually in their 20s or early 30s) living in different parts of the country (some are actually living abroad), with varying salaries, and have them list out everything they spend money on … More Digging
Here’s what I’m digging lately… Novels – I was a voracious reader growing up (and when I say “voracious,” I mean my parents literally had to pry the books out of my hands for fear I would ruin my eyes from constantly having my face shoved in a book). Since my early 20’s, I shamefully … More Digging
I’ve never been what I’d call an ambitious person. I’ve always had very good work ethic and it’s always been important to me that I excel in whatever I do, but I’ve never really had much in the way of career goals, or desired to “work my way to the top.” As shameful as it … More On liking your job
Whew, what a year it’s been (and continues to be). Not only was I wrapped up in planning my own wedding, but I’m also in a close friend’s wedding in less than a month, and I transitioned into a new position at work a couple months ago. The good news is, my new position requires … More Autumn Weekends
We did it! I’ve officially been a married lady for about three weeks now. Everything was more beautiful and perfect than I ever could have imagined (with a few perfectly imperfect details that made the whole thing real, of course!) I don’t have many pictures yet, but I’ll share a few favorites once I get … More Hitched.
I don’t know why, but it just hit me today for some reason: I’m getting married in one week and four days. WHAAAAT! How did this happen?! For the past couple of months, I had hit kind of a numb point…I don’t know if “numb” is the right word, but I had hit a point … More Eeeeeek!
This is something I don’t talk about much, but here it is: I have anxiety. Pretty bad anxiety. To the point where I doubt everything I say, to the point where I avoid talking to people because I’m paranoid that everything I say is annoying, or makes me sound unintelligent, or causes unintended distress and/or … More Anxiety.
