In a world where we're told not to be selfish, I'm telling you why you should stop and focus on yourself in hopes of building a healthier and happier life.Read More
We're only two years into this whole marriage thing and definitely don't have it all figured out, but we're sharing some of the things we did learn in our second year that we hadn't had to face in our first year as husband and wife.Read More
Reflecting on 2016 and not getting as far with personal goals as I would have hoped for the year.Read More
It's laughable to me now to look back and remember how stressed I was in college, balancing classes, school work, internships and jobs. I didn't even know what #adulting really was back then.Read More
Do you ever find yourself caught up in an internal battle, frustrated with yourself and wondering how you let your head take you there? That has been my life the past couple of weeks.Read More
Saturday marked one year married to my best friend. And while we don't have all the answers and still have loads to learn, there were plenty of lessons learned in year one that no one gave us a heads up on. And since everyone around us seems to be getting married (or close to it), we thought it was worth passing along.Read More
I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. Tacking on the word "resolution" just seems to set you up for failure. Instead, a few years ago I adopted the habit of setting goals for my New Year. I find that I'm way more successful and don't beat myself up if I fall behind or don't accomplish a goal.Read More
I fear change. I like my life the way it is and everything to happen just as it always has. I like knowing what is going to happen, when it is going to happen, and how it is going to happen.

I'm an introvert. Not such a hard thing to admit to the world, right?Read More
With my 25th birthday tomorrow, I’ve been reflecting on the past year a lot. I knew my 24th year would hold a lot of changes; how could it not with the whole getting married thing? Previously, I had always anticipated that my 18th year with graduating high school and starting college would be the biggest year of change I would face.

Monday's are the worst. I don't care how much you enjoy your job, you do not enjoy your job on a Monday morning.Read More
Sometimes I like to fool myself into thinking that because I'm almost 25 years old, all of the things that used to bother me when I was a teenager don't apply to my life anymore.
What a load of crap.
About two and a half years ago I decided that I was going to start a blog. I was in the midst of my most stressful (and thankfully final) semester of school, I was working and interning, and I was applying for jobs. Even though I was busier than ever, I still wanted to put myself out there and start a blog sharing my life and all the craziness that existed within it.Read More
