Chris-MIX 2013

If you hate holiday music you should just move along, because this post is going to really annoy you. I LOVE holiday music. This should come as a surprise to no one, since I like to think I am a pretty festive person in general, and I completely buy into every kind of special holiday […]

Quick Calligraphy

Hey! It’s me! I’ve been terrible about posting this week, but I wanted to put this up mostly because I’m preeettty proud of it, and I thought maybe you could use a little inspiration on this lovely Thursday as well. I was reading Emily Henderson’s post about her birth plan (which.. is normal? I’ll read […]


The second half of this year has been a little rough for me. I had a really good first half. It felt like things were picking up with my business, and stuff was going the way it was supposed to. What happened then was that I took on too much, and stalled out a little […]

Rabbit, Rabbit

image by kelly *I still don’t know what that means or why it’s a thing but someone mentions it on twitter every month so…. I have decided that November 1st might just be my favorite day of the year. Here I am, another successful Halloween under my belt (we got invited to a party! I […]

Mixtape 08 // 1957

Photo courtesy of oomf, type by me. After I decided on a new posting schedule, I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to do any more mixtapes. I really don’t want to post anything that feels like filler, because I mean, if I’m taking a break from blogs because I feel like a lot […]

Mac and Cheese, Please

SO. I really outdid myself on this one. Like… I’m going to try to be modest, but seriously – this is kind of a life changing idea that I came up with! All on my own. A quick disclaimer: If you eat normal food like a regular person, this is a great healthy-ish(the ish depends […]


I don’t know if this is something that is unique to my personality, or other people just don’t talk about it, but when I start working on gaining a skill, I either lose interest, or suddenly want to be the MASTER. That’s why I started trying to practice calligraphy once a week, and that’s why […]

Mixtape 07 /// pep in your step

Lately I’ve been loving some upbeat, summery tunes, and everything Mumford and Sons. Since it would be boring to make a playlist that was just Mumford and Sons, I compiled a list of some of my other favorites. Just put this on and then do some of your favorite summer clich├ęs: going on a road […]

Three New Ways To Eat Feta

It’s time to talk food! After a few weeks of intense laziness, I’m back on the wagon and loving anything that comes in salad form, as you will soon see. 1. David and I hosted a Fourth of July gathering, and I was determined to make it a healthy meal. Because I’m super fun. We […]

Calligraphy Practice

Hello, my friends! Welcome back to calligraphy practice with Alison. It is also photo styling practice with Alison, as evidenced by the extreme amount of props. I was going for a more loosey goosey style with this quote, but I think I need to work on having a lighter touch during my upstrokes, since I’d […]
