Suffering Produces Hope


Back in the day I used to post my weekly motivation and goals on Monday morning. Today I’m feeling inspired so I thought I would do a bit of a throwback. {Continue reading…}

Fresh Starts and Not Having a Choice


I planned to write an upbeat, highlight reel style filtered post all about my work trip to Napa this week. While it was an amazing time and I will share the highlights at some point, as always I want to be real here.

If you’re a long time reader, you probably have realized that my posts have been few and far between lately. This is because of a few things, but ultimately it comes down two things- a lack of time and a lack of desire. Quite frankly, I’ve been frustrated with blogging lately and do not have the time, energy or desire to create a picture perfect, editorialized life. That’s not to knock those type of bloggers, as I admire and read many of those style blogs, but what I’ve come to realize is that’s not me. {Continue reading…}

Good Evening! It’s moving week and things are a bit chaotic over here. We are living in a sea of boxes and are tackling a long to-do list to get ready for move in day.

A Sunday That Was Good For My Soul


Good Evening! It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve sat down to write a blog post. On one hand, I’ve missed it, but on the other hand I have not. Life has been more than enough to handle and I’m not even sure where to begin. For now, I thought I would share all about […]

My Favorite Make-Ahead Breakfasts


As you might imagine, our routines have been flipped upside down the past few months. However, now that I’ve been back to work for three months now I feel like we’re starting to find somewhat of a groove. When it comes to food, I’ve found that as always planning ahead is the key. Even though […]

Our Newborn Essentials

On The Go

When it came to preparing to have a baby, the number one thing that boggled my mind was all the stuff we would need. I spent hours researching, crowd sourcing and refining our registry. It was a running joke between Rich and I that whenever I was on my laptop I was editing our registry, […]

Republic Tavern Detroit


Detroit will always have a place in my heart. This past weekend, we were in town taking care of things with my Dad’s estate and I also was able to celebrate my friend Liz’s wedding shower and bachelorette party. It was a bittersweet weekend, but it was a great reminder of the amazing people in […]
