Hi, friends!

Welcome to this little bright spot on the web where I share about style, beauty, health, and travel. Life can be full and it can be fun. I’m so glad you stopped by!

2018 in Review

2018 in Review

2018 was good to Micah and me, there is no doubt about that. We did some serious traveling, beginning the year in Paris, spending a couple weeks in Spain, a trip here and there to Chicago, a quick jaunt to California to see family, and then ended the year skiing in Colorado.

It is the year that Micah became a captain for Envoy, we bought a beautiful new home, and I really focused on my health, cleaning up my diet and making exercise something I look forward to.

I also stepped outside my comfort zone, pushing myself to write more, carve this blog into what I want it to be, and started a podcast.

This year had some hard lessons, but it also revealed who and what is most important in my life. What I keep circling back to is this:

  • I have the best family and friends a girl could ever ask for (or even deserve—truly, I don’t deserve you all).

  • I have a deep need to create, even if it does make me vulnerable.

  • Travel is still what makes me feel most alive.

  • My health is a priority. That means feeding my body well and making it move every single day, even if it’s just a walk with George.

Home is where my dog is.

2018, thank you for the lessons and experiences. 2019, you have some big shoes to fill.
