Blog Break Thoughts

As you may remember, I took a break from reading blogs and general internet procrastination for the month of October. I actually stuck with it for most of the month, although I did start reading blogs again a couple days before October ended. It seemed like kind of a silly thing to make such a […]

It’s my party and I’ll make you read a recap if I want to

Hey! It’s my birthday! It’s kind of a big one, but nothing that big is happening, so I feel weird but also fine with it? I don’t know – there are a lot of feelings involved but it’s all going to be okay because age is just a number and not a countdown to when […]

Who I was, and who I am

This weekend I did some work on my blog, which involved going through all 420 posts one by one. It was pretty tedious, but also really fun to see how my blogging style has evolved in the three ish years I’ve been blogging here. While I definitely feel like I’ve come pretty far since my […]

I Still Love Calligraphy Review

So as I mentioned on here before – I decided to take a calligraphy class earlier this year. Even though I love hand lettering, and I’m pretty into trying to teach myself new skills before taking a class on them (I need to know if I’m interested before I start dropping money on something) I […]

In fact, I’ve been feeling disillusioned with blogging in general. So when my friend Jessica asked me if I’d been reading Mrs. Lilien, I thought meh, I guess I can check […]

Kindred Raleigh

This weekend, I was invited to the press preview of the opening of Kindred Boutique in Raleigh. My friend Amber just started working there, and since she’d been telling me about how awesome the space was, I was excited to check it out. When I walked in, the first thing that struck me was how […]

Dear Diary

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want my business to be, and by extension, what I want my blog to be. I want it to be authentic, and interesting, and I want my content to come from me, not just link back to other people’s work/blogs.  ‘Experts’ say that you should always post […]


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 […]
