Too Old For This

The title of this post is what echoed in my mind the moment I thought about taking gymnastics classes again. I had recently turned 25 and as much as I missed gymnastics, the thought of putting on a leotard and tumbling around on the floor with children made me cringe. As a young adult woman, there ...

Just A Table Away

Tonight I met up with some friends at a local cafe. We had a great time and I decided to hang out a little longer even after they had left. As I pulled out my laptop, I overheard the table across the way from me speaking about something that caught my ear. As I listened (discretely) ...

When Life Gives You Lemons

Make lemonade. Or as someone once said...throw those lemons back at life and tell it to make its own. darn. lemonade. Smile reader - sometimes life hands us things we don't know how to handle. Sometimes we'll cry, sometimes we'll laugh, and if you're anything like you me, you might evenView post

12 Fall Inspiration Outfits

For those of you who know me, you know that my favorite season of the year is fall. Now that we're in September, I'm counting down the days - 12 to be exact! - until I can wear my boots, scarves, leggings, and sweaters. I love how cozy and comfortable I'm able to be in the crisp fall ...

A Different Turn

Have you ever had a crisis, reader? Maybe you have and thought you were crazy. Maybe you haven't and you've wondered why. Lately, I've been in quite the predicament. I feel like I'm going through this bizarre "quarter-life" crisis. (If you don't believe me, look it up. Apparently, it's actually a thing.) Essentially, it's something that people ...

Let me begin by saying: it's a myth. No one is perfect, of that, I am certain. We sometimes live in a bubble, hoping we'll find out differently. We wish for people to not disappoint us, we hope to be understood, and we do our best to be...perfect. Our society focuses on hiding all of the blemishes. ...

Love Thy Neighbor

This past week I went house hunting. A wonderful friend of mine took me around to look at a few properties that had gotten my attention and I fell in love with house #2. It was gorgeous! From the cherry wood floors to the perfect mix of neutral paint and accent walls, I could definitely picture calling this ...

Books Every 20-Something Should Read

If you're anything like me, you probably walk into a Barnes and Noble and just stare at the vast number of books. It can feel overwhelming, even when you know the topic you want to read about. Personally, I can spend hours in a bookstore. I love the atmosphere, the feel of a new book ...

A Father’s Arms

Strong, but tender. Protective, yet loving. Authoritative, but kind. Powerful, yet welcoming. So many words could express the same thing, and it doesn't matter how old I am. I will always love being wrapped in a hug in my father's arms. Fathers - don't ever forget the important andView post
