I Hate My Apartment, Part 1

That title is misleading. I love my apartment. It’s in a great location, it has wood floors, and it’s older so it feels a little more charming. Recently, I’ve been feeling the urge to switch things up, and I’m at a decorating crossroads. There are so many beautiful homes out there, between Pinterest and the […]

Run, Forrest!

I am not a runner.  I’m not really sure why people would want to do things like run marathons, because personally, that holds no appeal for me. I admire people who are runners! They are in such good shape, and they’ll definitely survive much longer than me if there’s ever a zombie apocalypse, or a […]

Memorial Day Weekend

Despite the fact that the holiday weekend snuck up on me this year, we still managed to have a pretty good time. I: + Made and consumed a delicious batch of chicken wings with ranch sauce + Hit the pool. (I LOVE going to the pool.) + Affirmed my love for cilantro-jalapeno flavored beverages. I […]

Fresh Starts & Celebrations

I started Love Citron before I even knew I wanted to be a freelancer. It was almost an act of desperation. My job search was not going well, and I needed to do something. Love Citron was my first step toward independence. I never intended for it to become a full time job, but rather […]

Wish List: Laser Cut Shoes

Something I’ve been noticing around my corner of the internet is that cut out shoes are popping up more and more. I recently grabbed a pair for a wedding (the Calvin Kleins).. and then sadly had to return them. I could easily see a flat pair becoming my go-to shoes for the summer. They’re polished, […]

Frustrating Tiny Rooms

I’m not much of a game person. I can sort of get into some video games (like Mario Kart), and board games are pretty hit or miss for me. Some of this I attribute to my super competitive family. We did not play a lot of games when I was growing up, because when we […]


Has been nice! I actually got some work done for once (when will I learn that just answering my freaking email will make everything feel better?). David and I had a nice lunch outside, which was a lovely break. I’ve had Grey’s Anatomy on while I’m working, which I’m only what, five years late to […]

Staying Motivated

It’s safe to say that I am goal oriented almost to a fault. I love the sense of accomplishment that I get from checking something off my list, big or small. Setting goals is how I stay motivated. However, setting and reaching goals is kind of like sprinting. Freelancing is more like marathon running. (I […]

I’m Back! (Kind Of)

Last week, and for part of this week, I was in Ohio for my cousin’s wedding. I want to talk about it more, but I’m going to hold off until I get some photos that I can share.. because it was very pretty. It’s been one of those weeks where I have the deadly combination […]


I am going to be away from my computer for most of this week, so posting will be non-existent. I was going to queue up some posts, but I am experiencing some writer’s block, so I figured you’d rather have silence then a series of lame photo entries about my dog (my best idea so […]
