Why, Hello Again!

As you can tell, I've kind of taken an unofficial break from the blog since May. I didn't really mean to, at first, but after not posting for a few weeks I thought maybe it would be good for me to chill out for a bit this summer. It's been nice to take a step back and slow down a bit. I've also had time to think about what I really want my blog to be for me and for you my internet friends out there. I was trying to think about when others thought about my blog, what words would I want to come … [Read more...]

January’s 30 Acts of Kindness Roundup

This month I purposed to do two acts of kindness. First I decided to write thank you notes! There have been many people in my life that have loved, encouraged, or pushed me, molding me into the person I am today. I often think of them in certain situations and am filled with gratitude for the time they invested in me. But, rarely do I get the chance to tell them. So instead of just thinking about how thankful I am for their influence in my life, I decided to write them thank you letters. … [Read more...]

Goal Setting for the New Year

Instead of just jumping right into things this year I've decided to slow down and re-focus during the month of January. With a very busy Holiday season and being out of town for a week, I haven't had the time or head-space to really think about my goals for 2014. But, I received Lara Casey's Powersheets for Christmas (thank you Danielle!), and I've been working on them this past week and hope to finish before the weekend. I love them so far! They are hard work, but can't wait to see how they … [Read more...]

Welcome 2014!

Don't get me wrong, 2013 was a pretty great year, but I'm really looking forward to 2014.

So till then, Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for making 2013 wonderful, and stick around for more great things to come in 2014! … [Read more...]

Are you following Me?

Follow my blog with Bloglovin! Where has Bloglovin' been all my life? I found out about it at the Influence Conference (I told you you'd be hearing about it for a while) and it has changed the way I keep up with my favorite blogs. I used to save my favorite blogs in different bookmark folders and I would go through them, never knowing if they had been updated or not. Now I have all of my favorites in one place and can see at a glance new posts. Perfect! Head on over the … [Read more...]

The Nester’s 31 Day Challenge

I found out about The Nester's 31 Day Challenge while I was at the Influence Conference. I know, where have I been? She gave a challenge to write a blog post on one topic for everyday in October. I've loved finding some new blogs that are doing the challenge and following along with some old favorites. Here are some links to a few of my favorite 31 Day challenges so far: All Glorious Within - Figuring Out the Pieces Green Eggs and Hammes - 31 Days of Life in the Kitchen The Balanced Wife - … [Read more...]

The Influence Conference!!!

I'm excited for tomorrow because I'm headed off to the Influence Conference! I've never been to a conference like this before and truthfully I'm excited and super nervous. Excited to meet new people and make new friends, nervous because the introvert inside of me is quaking in my boots. While I'm there, I hope to learn a lot about how to better use my blog, and my love for art and creativity. I'll try to keep you posted, so stay tuned to my Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for … [Read more...]
