Wrapping Up September

I’m not going to lie, I am especially excited for this weekend. I don’t have anything too special planned, but after an amazing, restful, and FUN mini break yesterday, I’m ready to recreate the magic this weekend. The last couple of weeks have been tough for me in a way. While I think a huge […]

Why I love freelancing…

Because when I get a last minute offer to spend the day at the beach, I can go.  

Let’s Talk About Pricing

The most difficult part of freelancing so far has been determining how to price my work. The reason it is so difficult is because not only is it entirely up to me to decide what my price should be, but there is also very little concrete information out there about industry standards. Every designer prices […]


Halloween is just around the corner! If just around the corner means a month from now. I have been more excited about Halloween and autumn in general this year than I have been in quite some time. I think it can be partially attributed to the fact that for the first time in two years […]


It’s not even 12 on Monday, and I can already tell that this week is going to be wild. And not in a fun, let’s get wild kind of way, but more like you-will-never-have-more-than-five-uninterrupted-minutes kind of way. So let’s talk about the weekend instead! I had a really nice weekend. It started early, when David […]

Happy Birthday Dad!

This week it was my dad’s birthday. We celebrated by taking a 3 hour walk and then making him take us out to dinner. Actually, it was really fun to spend the day with him, and I made him a fudge ice cream cake that was a pretty big hit, even though it sort of […]

I Updated My Website Again

This is what I was going to talk about earlier this week, but then I actually had other things going on to write about, so it got bumped. The more you know. (Speaking of NBC, can I just take a moment to publicly announce how excited I am that my stories are coming back on […]

What Am I Working For?

I was reading Kathleen’s blog post today about what she wants out of her life, and I was reading my friend Liz’s blog about motivation, and how it’s hard for her to get motivated now that she doesn’t have as much structure in her life, and I realized that this is a topic that’s sort […]

Whew! (this counts as a really late Tuesday night post, btw)

My blog weekend extended into Monday this week, because my weekend was a little bit crazy and I needed an extra day. This was mostly because I spent Saturday night in the ER, and I feel I was robbed of one of the best nights of the week. I’m totally fine, and while I don’t […]

Welcome Fall!

Today has been one of my favorite kinds of days. It’s been gloomy, gray, and cool. I’m wearing a sweater, I need to have a lamp on, and it’s been raining on and off. Too many of these kinds of days make me super depressed, but since this is the first one of the season, […]
