Okay, I admit it. I'm a Christmas before Thanksgiving kinda person. I feel very reasonable and mature not listening to Christmas music before Halloween but after that, all bets are off and I'm already decking the halls. I love squeezing as much Christmas out of the year as I can....and while some may vehemently disagree, I don't think it's a bad thing.Read More
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, people! I am so excited because I cannot wait to EAT. Just because Thanksgiving is centered around eating turkey doesn't mean you can't have the most delicious Thanksgiving.

Today, I'm sharing a roundup of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes and tips for anyone who is wanting to cut back on meat, dairy, eggs or other animal products this holiday season.Read More

Minimalism is about making more room for the things that matter. When we were engaged, it was important for us to sit down and think about what really mattered to us. Brandon and I decided that we wanted a smaller wedding that would give us more money to take an awesome honeymoon. We wanted our wedding to represent ourselves with rustic, natural, outdoorsy feels and we knew we didn't want to skimp on photographs or food. We wanted our day to be relaxed, memorable and fun. More than anything, we wanted no anxiety.Read More
I get a lot of questions about how I'm always finding new ways to use fruits and veggies.

Loving fruits and veggies has taken some getting used to, but if you aren't a fan of veggies (or you just have trouble eating enough of them), here's 5 ways to make sure you're getting those daily servings!Read More
Today, I am starting a new series called "Dear You". The last Friday of every month, I will write an open letter to someone or something. I love this idea and I hope you do too! To start things off, I am writing to none other than my hubby.Read More
I’m currently working a full-time, entry level job in the psychology field, going to graduate school, and trying desperately to move out of my parent’s house, so I need to save every penny that I have. Whenever I rework my budget, I tend to allot around $30 a month just to coffee shops. This includes my Monday morning drive-thru fix, a cup of joe over a conversation with friends, and the evening I-have-a-paper-due-tomorrow emergency run.Read More
If you met me in person, you wouldn't have any idea that social anxiety grips me by the throat and slams me against the wall most days.
People tell me I'm bubbly. Full of personality. Outgoing.
Most of you know that I love Baltimore. I'm born here, lived here (with the exception of one year) all my life and I love it here. I'm dedicated to seeing this city thrive and change. And if there's one thing I ADORE, it's getting people to visit this great city. There are a TON of free things to do in this city and I hope this encourages you to visit Charm City ASAP!Read More
September has been a whirlwind. I'm settling nicely into my schedule and classroom but honestly, it's been a difficult month. I've done a lot of things, but the business and stress has really gotten to me and the anxiety has been back in large doses. Nothing I can't get through, but this month has just been kind of a hot mess. Here's what went down...Read More
Lately, I'm trying to build a capsule wardrobe and transition to a minimalist lifestyle...which means that I have begun to clean out my closet and fill it with things I truly love. But I'm a broke college student so I recently tried ThredUp for the first time to help me transition my wardrobe from summer to fall. And OH EM GEE can I just tell you how IN LOVE I am with this company?Read More
Fall is in full swing and I am loving the fact that sweater weather is approaching! As I am trying to transition into a more minimalist lifestyle, I am also parring my wardrobe to get rid of items I don't love and filling my wardrobe with items I adore!Read More
Being a teacher, I see the power of education on a daily basis. I love seeing the light bulb go off. I love seeing the kid who couldn't read begin to sound out words independently. I love seeing the imagination of these little minds. I know all my of students will become amazing people one day. Our education system may not be perfect, and it is certain with its flaws, but how lucky are we to live in a country where education is so readily available.
Guys, I cannot believe that it's going to be OCTOBER! I've been back to school for a while now, and the kiddos are back into the swing of things, so I am in full fall mode. Brandon and I have promised each other we are going to do something fall-ish every weekend and today, we are headed off to Boston and Providence to soak up the fall weather in New England. I am so excited!
