How to Not Suck At Calligraphy

So lately I’ve been feeling like I need to step up my calligraphy game. I’m not sure what I expected – it’s not like I’ve picked up a pen since I did this, and for me at least, calligraphy is a skill where, if I don’t practice, I not only won’t get better, but my […]


Luckily we have this super cool photo to forever document our trip – I can’t even believe I’m showing this to anyone. A couple weekends ago, David and I went ziplining, as part of his ongoing Christmas present. I realized a while ago if I wanted to be the fun person who does cool things […]

An Airy & Light Bedroom

I finally, (FINALLY) took some photos of my ‘new’ bedroom! Before we get started, a few disclaimers. Okay, just one disclaimer. It’s really hard to take a good picture of my bedroom. It’s pretty small, and I don’t have a wide-angle lens, so this is about the best I can do right now.  Also, here’s […]

Friday Flowers

Hooray for summer, am I right or am I right?? When I saw those bells of ireland at the grocery store, I couldn’t resist. The hydrangeas are actually from my yard, and I have to tell you, that plant is probably one of my favorite things about living in this apartment. I have been trying […]

Easy Snacks – Garlic Crackers

Mixtape 06 // Class Act

Listen Here I really love older music. I’m talking 50s/60s swingy, jazzy stuff. It’s just my jam! There’s just a romance and craftsmanship to that music that I respond to – and there’s really nothing better than putting on some Etta James, pouring an after-work cocktail and putting up your feet. Anyway, these are just […]

Boston Calling

The great thing about having a BFF who lives in a super cool city is that I get to visit said city as much as I want, basically. I mean.. I think she’d notice if I moved in permanently, but it’s really fun to have such easy access to a place I am growing to […]

What I Ate

1. I just got back from a little trip up to Boston, and this post should be more accurately titled: What I didn’t eat. We enjoyed ice cream almost every night from JP Lick’s , hit up the Sam Adam’s brewery tour, went back to Render Coffee because it’s just that good, and ate at […]
