I’ve always loved buying new calendars. There’s just something about it—I love that it’s like rotating artwork, and that it’s also a little surprise to celebrate the start of each month. So, I’ve usually held on to my favorites, assuming I’d eventually put them to good use again at the very low price of: nothing.Read More
I normally lean hard into meat and cheese as an appetizer, but lately I've been loving subbing in this simple and delicious ricotta spread for the various cheeses.Read More
I definitely think I ordered culottes only to try them on and fall in love with them as wide leg, nearly-full length pants. But I'm so into these blush beauties.Read More

I asked a bunch of my married friends and family to reflect on what they loved most about their nuptials, or what they wish they'd done differently. From the logistical to the sentimental, I love hearing people's honest thoughts and advice after the fact—weeks, months, or years later.Read More
A friend recently asked me (after reading this post) how I tell what trends are coming. She said that she has a hard time sorting through all of the fashion out there (a ton of which is pretty unrelatable, considering it’s on the runway) and drawing conclusions about what trends are coming for a season. First of all, I couldn’t agree more! It is difficult. And for as trivial as this topic might seem or sound to some, for many of us, if we’re going to spend a little bit of extra money on some new clothes for the season, we do want to know what we’re going to be seeing in the stores and what trends we may want to dabble in. Trends are a large part of what makes fashion fun, in my opinion.Read More
Cauliflower is a sneakily great ingredient. It's often forgotten about, flying under the radar as most beige/white vegetables tend to do. But it shouldn't!Read More
The worst part about summer is bathing suit season, but the glass-half-full perspective is that the best part about bathing suits is the summer season :)Read More
Yesterday, I was featured as a Roc Girl to Know by Roc Girl Gang. Let's just say that being named among such an incredible group of local women was #squadgoals, achieved. I am beyond honored to be recognized, let alone captured in utterly magical photographs by the absurdly talented Katie Finnerty. Feeling the love for my city BIG time this week.
Here is a link to my feature if you'd like to see!
If there’s anything I’m anal about (lol, how much time do you have?), it’s ugly labels and branding being on display in an otherwise aesthetically pleasing setting. You know, like over my dead body are our Oral B electric toothbrushes and Crest toothpaste staying out on the bathroom counter :)Read More
Something I've really come to appreciate as I've gotten older and have had more exposure to good food is a delicious, simple salad.Read More
We closed on our new house in November, and we've been working our butts off ever since that memorable day when we received the keys, popped a bottle of champagne, and took a sledge hammer to the existing kitchen cabinets :)Read More
What IS it about chicken salad that is so stinkin' indulgent and delicious? When done right, it's one of those things I have a real hard time passing up if it's on a menu. But to be honest, I thiiiiiiink I make it the best at home. And that's why it's a favorite of mine to make ahead for weekday lunches.Read More

This is the second installment of a new periodical series in which I’m discussing the abbreviated goings-on in my world as of late. The verbs may change slightly from post to post depending on what I’ve been up to, but each one focuses on what I’ve been thinking about, doing, listening to, reading, eating, buying, etc. in hopes of spreading the word about new products or services or just corralling current thoughts or feels. So, here’s where I’m at in the world...Read More
Don't walk away! I know what you're thinking.
And I know it for two reasons. One was my own reaction as a kid when I first heard my grandma was making goulash, and two was Jon's reaction a week ago when he heard I was making goulash.Read More
