Creating the Perfect Save the Date for Your Next Celebration

Creating the Perfect Save the Date for Your Next Celebration

While everyone I know (and everyone I've ever seen on social media) is getting engaged, married, or pregnant, I'm over here celebrating myself in a completely different way. I'm graduating! I'm graduating college after 10 years of being in school on and off. I have accomplished so much in this last decade, and I am [...]

Daydreams

Daydreams

When I was younger I would spend hours sitting in a tree in my front yard, curled up with a book. In the summer, when I got tired of reading and the sun made my eyelids heavy, my mind would wander and I'd escape into daydreams. My imagination ran wild and chased butterflies of dreams [...]

Owning It
