Whew, I don’t think I’ve ever packed so much into two short days before.  It’s currently Thursday and after one of the busiest weekends followed by an even more insane work week, I can say with certainty that I will be relishing every quiet moment I have coming my way this weekend.  Current plans include ...

December Small Goals + Year End Survey

I’ve seen a bunch of people post small monthly goals (and I recently realized that Writes Like a Girl started this monthly post & has a monthly link up for it on her blog!) and I really like the idea of re-centering and re-evaluating everything more frequently.  It’s awesome to make yearly goals but it’s also easy ...

Thanksgiving + a Long Weekend on the Shore

I definitely say this all the time, but I’m completely blown away by how quickly time is passing these days.  It seems like only yesterday that I was daydreaming about my almost-week-long-Thanksgiving-vacation and now here I am, what feels like a day later, getting ready to catch a train and head back to work in ...

An Autumn Wish List

Autumn is by far my favorite season.  I pretty much live for chunky sweaters, cozy plaids, well loved denim and oh the cozy accessories!  I could honestly go all of Spring and Summer without buying a single article of clothing but as soon as August hits, I feel alive and inspired and crave the comforts ...
