The minute Sunday hits that feeling of your weekend ending before it even began starts to sink in. It’s Sunday, which means tomorrow is Monday, which means weekend over. Or it could mean you have one whole glorious day of your weekend left to soak in. I work every other Saturday and have Mondays off […]
Having a happy, warm, and cozy home is the best feeling ever. A home that invites my guests in from the moment they step through the door is always my goal. From family and friends to first time visitors I want them to feel at ease and comfortable in my space. An inviting home reflects you and communicates to guests this is a place they can be themselves too. I’m so excited to share how to create an inviting atmosphere in your home.

I’ve loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I grew a much deeper appreciation when I took a Black and White Film Photography course in College. The joy of capturing moments and still lifes has never gone away for me. I started taking pictures of my food in earnest while on the […]
I had an amazing experience and lesson in generosity over Christmas. It all came down to a ten dollar bottle of wine. The plan for the day was simple. I hit the road around 11 a.m. for an hour drive to my brother’s place in Los Angeles to celebrate an early Christmas together on the […]

Happy New Year! I am welcoming this new year with arms wide open. It is a new chapter, unwritten, full of potential, possibility and no mistakes… yet. As L.M. Montgomery put it in her book Anne of Green Gables “Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it… Yet.” In the new year the […]
I love setting goals. Even better yet I love crushing goals. Nothing feels as good as actually achieving your goals. I’m big on effective goal management. It can get overwhelming though, can’t it? From big goals to small goals it can feel like a daunting task at times. Have you ever wanted someone to simply take your hand and guide you step-by-step through planning your goals? Beyond help with the planning stage, it’s important that we don’t remain stuck there. We need tools to launch us beyond planning into action.
Every time I am faced with criticism I have two choices. I can respond defensively, closed off and with my guard up or I can respond with grace, kindness and openness. I choose to look for ways to have grace in the face of criticism. When I was in Art school I found the courses […]
As a single living halfway across the country from my family I am overfilled with gratitude at the kindness and thoughtfulness that my community of friends constantly shows me. I often spend the holidays invited in by friends. Holidays are joyous occasions filled with delight, generosity, thankfulness and kindness! Holidays can also be lonely, stir up […]
