One of the perks of being a "temp" nanny is getting to meet and interact with different families all the time. I love the variety that comes with meeting new people and experiencing different home environments and cultures. One of the families I work for occasionally is from India. Their... Continue reading

I just had to share these fascinating, weird and creepy vintage costume photos with you guys. I found them via my favorite Denver radio station and thought to myself, "Hey self, what better way to start October than with a post full of pictures that will totally freak out your... Continue reading

Yea totally! Its a trade off because the money is way better than working at Starbucks, I just hate not knowing for SURE where the money is going to come from that month. Very stressful! Lets both grow money trees so we can shop til we drop and go to Starbucks five times a day, k? ; )

You're right Anna, it definitely will. It already is... slowly but surely. Feels good to get it out though haha : )

(I have randomly inserted cute pictures of pets in costumes to offset the "Debbie Downer"-esque vibe of this blog post but in reality I think what I've actually done is created this really sick emotional rollercoaster. And for that I am sorry.) The sounds of the masses rejoicing over the... Continue reading

I can't explain why, but every now and then someone comes into my life that just seems like they were "meant" to be there. It might be a dear friend who I get to see every week over coffee or it may be someone miles away that I just develop... Continue reading

Hey Jenn! ; ) Thanks for your comment, starting a business is definitely still on the agenda. Moving cross country and then trying to get settled in has taken a lot more time than I thought and Im just trying to focus on getting things normalized a little before I add any more "crazy" to the mix. I love you for asking though! Its seriously so encouraging and mind blowing to have so many people curious and excited about it. : ) Have an awesome week!

Oh boy, where do I even begin? It's a story as old as time. Girl starts blog. Girl is obsessed with blog. Blog becomes business. Business is an adventure. Girl gets tired. And bored. And burnt out. Girl steps away from the computer. Very slowwwwly. Girl spends an infinite amount... Continue reading

I wish I knew the source of this picture because then I might be able to hone in on the bunny's actual location and steal him when no one was looking. But I'm moving on now because those fluffy paws are breaking my heart. It's Easter! And I'm back in... Continue reading

I've been a fan of documentary films forever and this one that I saw earlier this week had a really prfound impact on me. I think I cried most of the way through. And while I want to keep the content on this blog somewhat light and happy, I also... Continue reading

Unless you're completely new to this blog, you probably know that I recently moved from my old blog over on Blogger to this shiny, new one. I must admit it was a bittersweet moment because I had some good times over there. And while I considered importing all of those... Continue reading

I mean, I don't know how much more of this I can take. Are they trying to drive me insane? Yes, I believe they are. I have long been a fan of Marimekko and this season is no different. It's a pear pillow for goodness sakes. I'm just going to... Continue reading

It's late. And I'm so tired. Today has drained me almost completely. But earlier, in the midst of it all, I was hit with one simple word. Redemption. And in like a flood came the realization of all the beautiful manifestations this word has taken in my life. I was... Continue reading

I always feel fancy when I order business cards. And it's almost always been extremely rushed. Usually the week before a craft fair, back when I was still selling handmade. I never really ended up liking the design very much and I always ordered too many. I have over a... Continue reading

Life is going really fast for me these days. It's probably moving at the speed of light for a lot of you, too. And even when the direction things are going is a really positive, exciting one it can still be entirely overwhelming. I couldn't be any more pleased with... Continue reading

My oh my, if you're a blogger or just a reader of blogs then I'm sure you've caught wind of all the Google-Reader-got-voted-off-the-island drama. Fortunately for me, I fell off the "Reader" wagon a long time ago. But reading blogs is one of my favorite parts of the day, every... Continue reading

The whole vintage look with muted colors has served me well for these past 9+ years but I feel like I'm finally entering into a new style phase and it's pretty exciting stuff. I still love the whole vintage look but I am so drawn to more graphic, bold florals... Continue reading
