March 2022 Books in Review

Now that I'm staring staring down the middle of May, I've finally caught up on all my March book reviews (and even managed to start on my April ones). Okay, I read a lot in March, which was great! Except that I slacked off on reviewing books and then had to catch up. Let's not let me do that...

February Books in Review

February Books in Review

February, the shortest month of the year! At the end of January, we all went into isolation after positive tests. Thankfully, our cases were mild and my biggest symptom was a headache that wouldn't quit. But by the time February rolled around, we were still in isolation and I was ready to devour...

January Books in Review

January Books in Review

One of the things I'm endeavoring to do this year is be better about reviewing the books I read. For the past seven years, I've tracked the books I've read each year, but I haven't reviewed them in any regular fashion. It's gotten to the point where I've often forgotten to give them star ratings,...

Year End Review: 2021 Shopping Diary

Year End Review: 2021 Shopping Diary

Last spring, I wrote about how the pandemic and an international move had affected my wardrobe, and how I am working on slowly rebuilding my closet. My goal was to purchase less than 20 items this year, and for half of those items to be from small and/or ethical shops, or be used. So, how am I...

Time in a Finite Resource

Time is finite. You always think there will be more of it. That you'll have one more chance to visit your favorite restaurant. To wear that dress you love (before it doesn't fit again). That you'll watch another sunset or sunrise or ride on a plane and stand in front of something that a group of...

Another Spin Around the Sun

Another Spin Around the Sun

It was my birthday in August, and with it, I am squarely in my mid-30s now. In some ways, I feel very old (hello, TikTok stars, how are you all such babies?!) and in other ways, I feel like just gotten to a point in my life where I feel aware of who I am. I am more confident in making decisions...

In this Moment // July 2021

A couple weeks ago, I went on a retreat in Austria, a small weekend in a little house with eight other women. It was a fantastic time to get away from Munich, to get away and spend some time with other women who are also entrepreneurs. One thing I realized towards the end of the weekend, is even...

A peek in my closet in 2021

A peek in my closet in 2021

What happens when you purge a bunch of clothes because of the pandemic and an international move? You end up with a very limited wardrobe. As we emerge into a new world in 2021, I'm searching for a few key things to fill out my closet, but in the meantime, here's what I currently own: Tops: 23 + 6...

I Don’t Know What is Next

I Don’t Know What is Next

Over the winter, I made a plan to stop shooting weddings. I announced that here on the blog at the end of January. I had started working on a new business plan and I was really excited to see where 2020 would take me. I went on vacation to Palm Springs during the first week of February, got sick...
