My Birthday in NYC – Visiting The Color Factory

Last year for my birthday Darren and I spontaneously decided to spend a night in NYC and we had so much fun! I wanted to go to places I had only seen and dreamed about and screen shotted because of Instagram and this year I had a whole new list – including an art exhibit,…

January – The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

I recently told you guys that I would be reading a book a month for the next year and what better way to hold myself accountable to that than to write a blurb about each one that I read? The first book on my list was The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, aptly subtitled Or,…

My Favorite Podcast – Armchair Expert

If you’re already an Armchair Expert fan (an armcherry) then you already know that this Podcast is built like a brick shithouse, and I mean that as the upmost compliment; it’s real, it’s sturdy, and the quality – substantial; if you hadn’t listened yet, then I’m going to tell you why that makes you a…

Mother Mary

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be.  There are days that my dad and I have everything in common, from our blue eyes, to the fact that he lost his father when he was young, and I am losing mine. My father…

The Christmas Edit – What Darren Got Me for Christmas

Hi everyone! I hope you all had the most amazing Christmas, I know I did and I wanted to share with you (in hopefully the least braggy way possible) what Darren got me, as it seems to be the only question I’m getting asked the past few days. Darren and I have decided in our…
