Bookish, Ciao, Snaps

I went to Yale. Kinda.

Last month, I spent a week at Yale University attending the Yale Publishing Course. We won’t get into the semantics of if I went to Yale or if I went to Yale, largely so that I don’t have to crush my own dreams, but it’s a funny thing to sit in a classroom at an Ivy League school in your…

Goodbye November

Soooooo, I ended up taking an unplanned blogging hiatus that I didn’t even realize I needed for most of November. (Thank you for sticking around). During that time, I expanded my repertoire of feet and dog photos, spent a week in Tulum, decided that I need to give Whole30 a go (have you seen Mandy?), and started mentally planning some…

Goodbye October

October has historically been my favorite month for all the most cliche reasons — apple cider, scarves and cardigans, crisp morning walks with Ollie. But living in Texas means that those things never really materializes until November. So I’ve decided to adjust my expectations and declare November my new favorite month. That doesn’t mean that October wasn’t good to me;…

Goodbye September

High five! September is over! You may recall that I wasn’t exactly looking forward to September. And you may have noticed that I was especially quiet on social media. I had a lot on my plate last month, but now that I look back, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. That doesn’t mean that I want…

Five Favorite: Instagram Dogs

More than any other social network, I am Instagram obsessed. From food to flowers and sunsets to selfies, I love it all. But especially Instagram dogs. There’s a good chance that at this point I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. Here are five of my favorite Instagram dogs. Are there any others that I should be following? Tuna…

Goodbye August

I know I say this every month, but whoa. I barely had time to register that it was August and now it’s September. There’s another busy month on the horizon, and if I’m being honest, I’m not looking forward to it. I have to do some things personally and professionally that I’d altogether rather avoid, but I guess that’s how…

Goodbye July

You’ve been a real peach, July, but these 100-degree temperatures have got to go. Let’s reminisce about the good times and then move on because I’ve got big things on the horizon. I may have over-committed through the end of the year, but there’s lots of travel planned and I’m anxious to pack my bags! pink hair // walks and…

The Month of June

The month of June was lovely, wasn’t it? I ate and traveled and planted and celebrated and jammed. The heat in Austin was totally tolerable. I rekindled my love (slash hate) affair with barre and I’m getting ready for a busy July. How was your month? Do you have big things in the works for July? popsicles in Patrón // doggie…

The Month of May

Did someone hit the fast forward button? I feel like we’re moving at at least 8x normal speed. I mean, how is it even possible that it’s already June? I barely had time to appreciate all the good things that happened in May! I got to visit home and vacation in the Bahamas. I finally decided to sell my wedding…

Chicago Chillaxin’

You may have noticed that I was a wee bit quieter than usual this past week — that’s because I made a trip home to Chicago to visit family. I love Chicago and get all first-date-nervous whenever I catch a glimpse of the skyline (which is why this news makes me very sad). I usually spend at least one afternoon…
