August + September 2019 {warmth and anxiety}

August feels incredibly long ago, doesn’t it? And September went by like a blur. Each month felt incredibly different yet similar. August came with warmth and beautiful sunflowers, while September danced with falling leaves and also a bit of snow (yes, you read that right). The past two months feel incredibly different yet so similar somehow.… Continue reading August + September 2019 {warmth and anxiety}

July 2019 {freedom, adventure + creativity}

  July, the month I came alive. No other month this year made me feel as happy and free as July did. I could argue that I haven’t felt that good in years, actually.

December 2018 {monthly reflection}

December is always such a busy month. It rolls in quickly and before we know it, the anticipation of Christmas is over and we’re back to normal everyday life. Everyone seems to busy during December. People seem extra antsy and it often makes me think of how overworked everyone is. Thankfully many people receive a holiday… Continue reading December 2018 {monthly reflection}
