Marie Kondo

Hello, World.

Toward the end of fall semester, I started feeling like I had too much stuff. I think the feeling was exacerbated by also feeling like I didn’t have enough space to adequately store my stuff. Lack of closet space, lack of bins to put miscellaneous items, etc. all contributed to feeling really overwhelmed. Over the last few years, I’ve said I need to go through my closet but just haven’t made the time to do it. Continue reading “Marie Kondo”

One Day in December by Josie Silver

One Day in December by Josie Silver

Hello, World.

I have a book recommendation! The end of the fall semester was an absolute whirlwind for me and the “fun” reading became unmanageable. I definitely got a little overzealous and ordered two 400+ page books for October and November and fell behind. I’m hoping as we enter 2019 I’ll have more time to read for fun again, as reading novels brings me so much joy. Continue reading “One Day in December by Josie Silver”

Gifts For Men

Gifts For Men

Hello, World.

Today I wanted to share my top picks for gifts for men. Whether it’s a significant other, brother, brother-in-law, or father, I think all of my picks work.

When I need gifts for men, I got to Mark and Graham or Kiel James Patrick, pretty much exclusively. Continue reading “Gifts For Men”

December Daily: Why I Participate

December Daily: Why I Participate

Hello, World.

With Thanksgiving this week, and the holiday season in full swing, I wanted to share why I participate in Ali Edward’s December Daily project as a 20-something, single, childless person. When I tell people I scrapbook my way through December, they usually look at me with a few expressions: (1) confusion, (2) “wow, you’re a grandma” or (3) support. People who know me know I love taking photos and I love the holiday season. Christmas music, holiday drinks, fuzzy sweaters, Hallmark movies, I’ll have it all. The holidays are a very happy time for my family. Continue reading “December Daily: Why I Participate”
