Plants.

November 2, 2018

It’s happening, guys. I’m taking ownership of this plant life. I will be a non-green thumber no more! I’ve decided that enough is enough, and if I’m going to keep wanting beautiful indoor plants in my home, I need to learn how to properly take care of them. So, as one does, I roamed the […]

Our Wedding Day

October 21, 2018

A year ago today. It all began a year ago today. Our story, our journey, our life together. Today is also Matt’s birthday. So funny that we “matched” and started chatting on his birthday. I thought it was fitting that I share our wedding day a year to the day we virtually met. It was […]

World Mental Health Day

October 10, 2017

Bloom.

May 20, 2017

When a flower blooms, how do you know it doesn’t hurt? I’m twenty-three years old, and I have actively avoided feeling pain my entire life. I’ve played it safe, taken all the routes I thought I was supposed to, being just enough creative but not too wild, living but not too much. Then this year […]

My Favorite Season

October 6, 2016

There’s just something extra special about the crisp fall air, throwing on a sweater before going outside, listening to the crackle of the fireplace, curling up on the couch with your favorite book, early nights at home, the smell of fragrant comfort food cooking in the kitchen. I could go on and on about why […]
