I grappled with that when I moved...and decided that for now, they still bring me joy. So, I've kept them. Although, I did edit down to 1 copy of each, and donated the rest. As some point, I may scan "my" pages/articles/covers for an album or photo book. Or I might just keep it all for now. I did go through all of my layouts before the move & edited down - I didn't keep anything that I had done SOLELY for an assignment.

Awesome. I'm listening to The Fringe Hours right now - have you read that?

It seems as though everyone that I know (and every blogger that I read) has read, or is reading, this book. I ordered it shortly after moving into my apartment, after I'd already done so much decluttering & organizing during... Continue reading

Thank you Helen! I've been following a slow carb + intermittent fasting plan called Radical Reduction - an ebook is in the works, I just got to be a guinea pig! I promise to share the link when it's ready!

I am most definitely in a season of happy right now. On some days, I think that I'm just lucky...on other days, I feel like this season is hard-won. I have talked often about doing the work (health, wellness, spirituality,... Continue reading

I've been trying to find pockets of time for reading - on planes, while drinking my first cup of coffee, and/or just before going to sleep. The books that I'm bouncing between right now... The Motivation Manifesto - I started... Continue reading

Our weather forecasts swings wildly at this time of year - highs in the 50s (when we're lucky), lows in the teens (when we're not so lucky). I'm pretty sure that we say this every year, but....this winter has felt... Continue reading

March was a whirlwind. I went to California. I went to Chicago. I sold my house. I moved. I cried. I laughed. I drank a lot of wine. It was misery and magic, all rolled into one. I didn't have... Continue reading

Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe (West Village) is my current NYC fave. Misery Loves Company Bakeshop is my every-Sunday latte spot here....and it's a block from my new apartment. Counter Culture in SF.

We're in the eye of the moving storm right now. Yes, I've moved a gazillion times. Yes, I have muscle-bound guys (I'm assuming) coming to move furniture on Tuesday. Yes, I have some flexibility in time b/c I'm both an... Continue reading

I readily admit that I do not have a green thumb. Yes, I am the daughter of an avid gardener...but that is one of the many talents that I did not inherit. My wish list for our new light-filled apartment... Continue reading

February flew & crawled simultaneously. How does that work? I spent a lot of time worrying & waiting, shed tears of anxiety and relief, reminded myself to practice gratitude, and drank a damn lot of coffee. Here are a few... Continue reading

As we move toward moving, I'm thinking a lot about what I want our new space to look & feel like. We're cutting our square footage in half...and we're so excited about that. Downsizing our living space translates to upsizing... Continue reading

It was a whirlwind week. We put the house back on the market on Friday the 6th. We were under contract by Wednesday the 11th. Like, woah. I think that I spent most of the week in shock. I have... Continue reading

I find that the longer I'm "away" from the blog, the harder it is to return. That has to be some kind of first world problem, right? If I was blogging with any regular cadence, here's what I'd likely be... Continue reading

Oh, January. You were full of possibilities, plans, and parts that I didn't care for. It feels like so much more than a month. I only blogged a little, but I lived a lot. A few things that were my... Continue reading

January is all about clean slates, fresh starts, new lists. I'm craving white space right now...uncluttered margins & gutters. We still have our Christmas tree up, per the request of one girl who returned to university today. I'm so ready... Continue reading

A birthday confession - when I realized that I was turning 44 on the 4th, I was pretty excited. 44 is already a pretty powerful angel number, and 444 simply amplifies the positive vibe. I had a Birth Chart Reading... Continue reading
