Welcome to week 14562798 of quarantine. This week has been a bit different for me as I’ve actually left the house a few times. My mask has gotten some use and it’s been a mix of feeling free and feeling claustrophobic from having a large cloth covering my nose and mouth. I’ve gone out for […]

Lockdown Diaries – on vegan lasagna, a bit of leniency, and houseplants

May 15

As you can probably tell from my blog logo alone, tea is very special to me. I love how tea creates such a cozy feeling and there are so many different options. You can be an herbal tea drinker, or black tea, matcha, chai, and loads in between. Certain teas can even be like forms […]

How I’ve Been Staying Productive Through Quarantine

May 6

Today marks day 35 of quarantine because of COVID-19. Even typing that out feels like I’m writing a science fiction novel. It’s a weird, weird time. I’ve been writing in my journal as much as I can because I want to be able to look back and remember my emotions, the world’s experience, and how […]

The Lockdown Diaries – on sourdough, slow living, & the collective pause

Apr 19

I’ve picked up a new hobby this past week: hand embroidering. I always imagined it as an outdated little thing that takes too much time and is only for people who can draw more than stick figures (i.e., not me). That is until my sister mailed me her sweet go at embroidery and I fell […]

My Ultimate Hack For Creativity

Oct 11

Oh Friday, another week passed. It’s been full of adventuring, quality time with my husband, 3 solid runs, and counting down to today as my mother-in-law are going to see the Downton Abbey movie tonight! We couldn’t be more excited. This week I’ve found lots of online inspiration and I’m really leaning into the slow […]

Friday Feels

Sep 13

Last night my husband and I settled in on the couch and decided to flip on a movie. We scanned through Netflix, nothing really popping out as us, and then we saw it: The Great Hack. I’d seen articles on this documentary and heard people talking about it, knew loosely that it was about data […]

How Over Curation Has Led To A “Sheep Herd” Mentality

Aug 30

Hi hi and happy end of the week! I love Fridays almosttt as much as I love Mondays (something about a fresh start and all the list-crossing to do!) because it’s the signal of the weekend. And during the weekend I get to do all my favorite things like spend time with family, do my […]

Friday Feels

Aug 23

Hi. How are you? What’s new in your world? The last few weeks I’ve had this feeling, almost like a breeze fluttering through the window to wake me up in the morning, that has been nudging me to return to this space. I’ve been working hard to define what my online presence looks like and […]

My Personal Values

Aug 12

You know that adorable H&M sweater you bought last week, or that Zara dress you got for your first day at your new job? How about that cute blouse you picked up at Old Navy last month? What if I told you those “not think another second about it” purchases were made by people in […]
