For those of you who are just joining us, first of all, welcome! It's been a busy few months around here. In early August, I found out I was staffed as a writer on a television show for the first time! It's been horribly exciting and extremely chaotic. I found out that I got the job on a Friday, and I had to move from California to New York that . . .
Alright, if you know anything about me by now, you know I'm mildly obsessed with my dog. We adopted Millie in a time when I likely needed her more than she needed me, and for that, I'll always be grateful for her. Millie and I decided that, after nearly nine months together, it was time for her to share a guest post on my blog, so today, we . . .
Easy self-care. Is there such a thing? Yesterday morning, I rolled out of bed at 7:45AM, hopped onto a call for work, got right in the car to head to a blog shoot, came home, answered a million and a half emails, made two million calls, handled paperwork, did laundry, sent more emails, answered more calls, took Millie to the dog park, came home . . .
As most of you know, I launched The Kind Coalition this past November in response to our current social climate. If you're unfamiliar with TKC, it's pretty simple. We believe in kindness. We believe it's a fundamental necessity for EVERYONE, and that kindness is one of the most powerful unifying forces in the world. With this in mind, we have . . .
Anyone else still recovering from last week's Instagram crash?? Honestly, when Instagram is down, I find myself drawn to Facebook to pass the time. But Instagram AND Facebook!? Removing social media made me realize how much idle time I spend scrolling. Ooft - I will definitely be dusting off my library card. So, if you've been following . . .
In case you guys missed one of my thousands of #ProudDogMom IG posts, Mike and I adopted our pup, Millie, in October! We went back and forth for the longest time, knowing we wanted a dog while being slightly apprehensive about our ability to properly care for one. We didn’t take the commitment lightly – especially with so many pet parents . . .
We have all been there. The co-worker. The neighbor. The distant cousin who will be in town for her birthday. People for whom you have to buy a gift but don't TRULY know their interests - and let's be honest: how many bath and body sets does any single person REALLY need?! I know the feeling. Gift-giving can be super tedious when you and the . . .
So excited to share my spring home refresh with you guys!! But phew - this has been a crazy couple of weeks, hence my unreliable posting. We've been hosting family from out of town. It's so crazy to be at a point in my life where I have the capabilities to host - a guest bedroom, a dining table that doesn't force you to knock knees, evening . . .
We live in a divided time. But - I present the thing that unites us all: Target. More specifically, Target's home department. You guys no lie, I find my peace and calm in Target's home decor section, and Christmas came early because they're having a big President's Day home sale!! I took on the burden of shopping the sale for you. It was a . . .
Did you know that there's a new tax code at play? There are MANY changes that have resulted in the passing of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA) that President Trump signed into law on December 22, 2017. The TCJA is the most significant update to the internal revenue tax code since 1986, with over 115 new provisions - so, let's get some of them . . .
