• 2021 Word of the Year

    Where do I begin with 2020… Who am I kidding!? NOBODY wants to relive that shitshow. We are going to skip right over the chaos and leave that one to the history books. Today is all about NEW BEGINNINGS, FRESH STARTS and CLEAN SLATES! Something I think everyone could use more of right now, am I right? I won’t keep you waiting any longer, let’s welcome 2021 with open arms and hopeful hearts! I’m sure most of us are familiar with the annual tradition of setting goals and assigning resolutions. It’s a fun way to hold ourselves accountable for the next 365 days and feel motivated to conquer our weak…

  • Write Your Own Story

    I MADE IT TO ARIZONA…the land of sunshine, blue skies, good vibes, and no daylight savings time! YES PLEASE! My new home on the west coast is absolutely everything I could’ve imagined it to be and more. My heart has truly never felt so happy! (probably because there’s literally a palm tree in my backyard now) In my 22 years of life, I’ve been around a place or two. Born on a naval air station in California, grew up in a smalltown in Missouri, experienced a year of city life in North Carolina…and now here I am. AZ. Finally! It truly feels like HOME. Ever since 2017, when Mitchell and…

  • Yesterday You Said Tomorrow

    Nike really hit the nail on the head with this one. One of my favorite videos on the internet is Shia LaBeouf screaming JUST DO ITTTT!!! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, go Google it, and come back… It’s dramatic and full of lots of shouting, but you have to admit it’s pretty motivational! He’s right isn’t he? Yesterday, you said you’d do it tomorrow…and that day is here now. Ready to be conquered! I want to share a personal story with you real quick, because sometimes it helps to have something to relate to. There has been this opportunity at my fingertips for a couple months…

  • Ju$t $ay NO!

    Why does the act of “saying no” tend to be such a struggle for most of us? Even when we know it’s for the best? Ugh. The human brain baffles me on the daily. In this instance, I’m most specifically talking about money. Yes, baby, I mean spending that moolah we work our asses off for! WHY CAN’T WE JUST SAY NO! (callout post @myself) I’m not going to lie to you, money is a touchyyy subject for me right now. And I know I know, talking funds is probably just as much of a mistake as bringing up politics or vaccines at Thanksgiving dinner… But you know what? I’m…

  • Inhale the FUTURE, Exhale the PAST

    Letting go is hard for me. Sometimes I find myself so caught up in the past, I forget to live in the moment. Forcing myself to remember all of the good old times and not actually realizing just how good I have it now too. For example, the year I turned 16 was one of the best summers of my life. Fast forward to my Senior trip in Florida, unforgettable. Moving all the way to North Carolina with my best friend, (insane) but SO INCREDIBLE. Or when I turned 20 and launched my very own online clothing store!?  All the times I was living my best and happiest life, gone…
