law of attraction: discovering energetic relationships

I talked about the emotional scale and how it’s a great way to measure growth, but those same emotions can work on a smaller scale as well. Reading your energy around a particular subject is a great way to clear up little resistances that crop up from time to time.

how to stay sane during renovations

At this point, I feel pretty skilled at living with chaos in our home. We’ve lived through flooring installation, kitchen demo, and everything in between. Of course, I totally do this to myself, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t sometimes get overwhelming. I also know that general upheaval or the idea of having to move out of the house can be a barrier to entry for some so I want to shed a little light on how I keep my sanity when we’re in the middle of home projects.

a colorful, modern wedding

Let me tell you a tale of the greatest party ever. The fact that it was the best party ever is practically a miracle because let me tell you - wedding planning was not my forte. So all of the credit goes to the people who helped put it together - namely my mom. She made decisions when I didn’t want to and organized most everything. We also had AMAZING vendors. I mean LOOK AT THOSE FLOWERS! Here’s a little bit about our day and how everything came together.

my thoughts on marriage: year 1

I don’t talk much about my relationship with Sebastian here or on social media. I am so in love with the partnership we’ve built and don’t necessarily want or need validation of our relationship. Sometimes it’s nice to have something that’s just for you. But coming up on our 1st anniversary, I wanted to cement a few of my thoughts and feelings for me to look back on later. I know that I’m not an expert on marriage by any means, but I do feel that we’re really good at being married to each other and I wanted to share my biggest takeaways from our time together thus far.

a green bar cart for spring

At the moment, we have approximately 653,543,234 projects on our list for this house, but I’m doing my very best to enjoy where are right now. Part of that means making the most of what we’ve got now, including this bar cart. While I did have to move it to take these pictures (a brown background wasn’t working for me), I set up the bar cart like I always do - and this time with a green theme for spring!

law of attraction: scarcity mentality

There’s this thing called Scarcity Mentality and I hate it because it breeds fear. It tells you that there’s only so much of something and that if someone else has what you want, there’s less of it available for you. If someone else has success, there’s less for you. If someone else has money, there’s less for you. If someone else has love, there’s less for you.

where i am: february 2019

HOW is it already the middle of February. I feel so thrown off right now. We were in Mexico for the first few days of February (recap coming soon) and then got really sick. I mean like a sickness from hell. We’re slowly regaining our energy and appetites, and I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve actually written anything. Apologies for the absence, but I’m back! January was a slow month and I experienced an energetic/emotional low that I haven’t seen in a while, but that picked up once I realized it was just my annual winter blues. The end of January ended up being really productive.

7 awesome self-improvement books

Obviously I’m a serious self-improvement junkie and I believe that books are some of the best value if you’re going to invest in yourself. You don’t have to spend $1000 on a course to learn some of these concepts. Of course, those courses do offer different benefits than a book, but if you’re just starting out or on a budget, here are a few of my favorite personal development books that will help you uplevel your life.

what i'm packing for mexico

It’s almost here! Every year, I get the winter blues and I find the best way to help is to get away somewhere warm. This year, we’re headed to Tulum, Mexico and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s my first time in Mexico and I don’t speak a lick of Spanish, but I’m so ready for tequila, tacos and SUN. Packing for a warm weather trip in the middle of winter is a very strange thing, but I think the stark contrast makes it a little easier to identify your favorite summer items since it’s been so long since you’ve worn them. Here’s a look at what I’m packing…

how to beat the winter blues

Every year around this time I get in a funk. Seasonal Affective Disorder in full swing. This year it’s a self-doubt/lack of inspiration type funk. The good news is, I recognized it almost immediately and made a plan to start tackling it. I’ve already seen an uptick in my mood and outlook, so here are my best recommendations on beating the winter blues.

january favorite things

January is always a bit of a weird time of year. You’re coming off the holiday rush and have hopefully rested up for the new year, but there are lots of expectations and things people are working towards. All you want to do is clean and organize your house. Also, it’s freaking dark all the time and if you’re like me, you forgot to start taking your vitamin D when you should have. So in the spirit of some light-hearted fun, here is a list of a few of my current favorite things.

my winter bar cart

Normally, I’m a Christmas decorations until January 1 type of person, but this year I went ahead and swapped out our bar cart before we came home for Christmas so it’s one less thing I have left to do when we get back. Originally, I was thinking about going with a buffalo plaid cocktail napkin and doing heavier decorations, but once I pulled out the champagne glasses and remembered my mini string lights, I knew a simple gold theme was in order.
