And it’s 2015! It’s blowing my mind that we’re already two days into a brand-new year. Usually by now, I’ve figured out my word for the year and have set my yearly goals, but I’ve done neither, so I’m feeling a bit unprepared for this year. But no matter – I will figure them out […]

For the past three years, at the end of the year, I’ve sat down and come up with a list of the top ten books I read over the past year. This year, instead of doing that, I thought it might be more interesting to detail some of my reading stats for the year. I […]

So, Christmas is somehow nine days away. WHAT?! I don’t even know where this month has gone. I’m nowhere near done with my shopping. I’ve finished with my brother and my nephew, but I still need to do some serious shopping this weekend for my mom and some friends. I thought it would be fun […]

TGIF (v. 9)

December 12, 2014

Friday was my Christmas party for work and I had a blast. I met up with two coworkers before the party (the picture above is my soul sister and work BFF, Bri) for drinks and “prom photos” (the drink(s) helped me loosen up, something I always need for big social events!), and then we went to […]

I Left My Heart in Savannah

December 8, 2014

Last weekend, my mom and I took a quick trip to Savannah for my birthday. We drove up there on Friday and came back on Monday, so we had about one night and two full days there. I think I could have stayed there forever. I titled this post “I left my heart in Savannah” […]
