  • When the Instagram Feed Suffers

    An encounter with beauty stirs something deep in my soul. A longing for a continued encounter with the infinite goodness that I have just experienced. And isn’t this how it is all supposed to work out? WiFi has been limited on this trip, and I have honestly loved every second of it. Sure, my instagram -more-

  • Hello From The Other Side of the Pond

    Greetings from Venice! I can’t believe its finally here… this trip we have been dreaming about and longing for for 463 days… is HERE! Quickly stopping by to let you know that I’ve missed you, and now that death class is over (Hey! I got an A!) I am really excited to get back to -more-

  • Becoming My Best Self

    As you may or may not yet know, I am a fairly particular person. I prefer Starbucks coffee. I need a 5 blade razor. I love polo button down shirts. I will never go back to a non apple product for a computer. I am really conscious of what I put on my skin. Safe, natural, clean -more-

  • Monthly Subscription Planner? Sign Me Up!

    So it’s not really a secret that I am a big fan of planners. I live by the planner. If an appointment is in my planner, I will be sure to attend to it, and I will be all sorts of disoriented if I don’t meet you. I also get all out of whack if -more-

    I am a big believer in women supporting women. As a woman trying to someday enter a mostly male dominated field, I believe in this notion on a really deep level. So when my friend from high school announced she would be putting out a podcast, I was over the moon. I couldn’t wait to -more-

  • When Change is Good

    I have realized something recently. I am a creature of habit. House Blend coffee with half and half every morning. Apple Products for life. Find one pair of jeans that fits? QUICK! Buy every single color because you can never find jeans that simultaneously cover your booty and your ankles. Never switch your planner. No -more-

  • Spring Has Almost Sprung!

    Hello Friends! I have been waiting for spring like a kid waits for Santa Clause on Christmas Eve. Honestly any time I see a blue sky I am like oh great its gonna be warm now?! Okay?! Okay! Then it’s still cold and miserable and generally snows about 3 seconds later. I am SO ready -more-

  • Welcome to Holy Week

    Wow. Palm Sunday is always an incredible up and down of emotions for me. As I listen to the readings and watch the gospel unfold, I begin to see how my life follows the events on a regular basis. When things are good I praise Him, welcoming Him into my life. When things are bad, -more-

  • Day 35: What If There Was More To Life?

    “So if the Son frees you, you will truly be free.” (John 8:36) This hit me like a ton of bricks. If Jesus sets me free from any burden that I have, then I am actually free. There are so many things right now that have me in chains tighter than I can imagine. School. -more-
