Road Trip Warriors

For as long as I can remember, I have camped every summer. According to my Dad, they took us camping even when we were so little we couldn’t remember. Even to this day I go camping annually with my family. The only difference now compared to when we were kids? The...

My August Bullet Journal Setup

  All my young life I struggled with pre-made planners. The lines were wide ruled, or the boxes weren't big enough, or the design was just plain boring. Most people don't give much thought into their planners. Unfortunately for my wallet, I am not one of those...

Fave Finds Under $150 at the Nordstrom Sale

Ah, yes. The Nordstrom Half Annual Sale. Where hard earned money goes to be spent on things you don't need, but for some reason just have to have. Luckily I'm getting a little better at not blowing all my cash so quickly. While shopping the site, I was definitely...

Calming Down Before Breaking Down

When life gets you down, it's so easy to get sucked into your emotions. It's easy to panic, to retreat from friendships and family, to lose your cool and lash out and those around you. It's easy to get angry and blame it on your feelings later. But it also totally...

Spring has sprung, but that's hardly a condolence to those of us who spend most of our time indoors for the 9-5. During the early weeks of Spring, those crucial hours are the ones where the sun shines the most, the air feels warmest, and the colors are...

What I Loved in April

I cannot believe it is already MAY. This is crazy. This year is flying by, each day slipping through my fingers no matter how hard I hold on. It was a wonderfully warm month, though. And I was able to accomplish so much and get so much good out of it that I can look...

Wine & Sign Painting

Everyone, I have a confession to make. *sigh* I'm a wino. There! I said it. But I mean, who isn't nowadays? There are so many delicious, crisp wines to taste and so many yummy snacks to consume alongside them. I'm a huge fan of going to wineries and ordering a bottle...
