What I Did (and Wore) in April 2019

Let’s be honest: the last few months have been wrapped up in All Things Baby. Even before I got pregnant, I told myself I wouldn’t let myself get so wrapped up in having a baby and becoming a mom that I’d forget about myself, my hobbies, and my life. Though I haven’t done anything ofContinue reading “What I Did (and Wore) in April 2019”

Goin’ Back to Cali, Cali, Cali

My parents, my grandma, and I have officially mastered the four-day, cross-country vacation. This happened the first time in March 2017 and did a repeat this month — likely my final trip before baby arrives — and I couldn’t have asked for a better visit! In truth, it will likely be a while before IContinue reading “Goin’ Back to Cali, Cali, Cali”

What I Wore (and Did) in November 2018

It’s so far away from November that I barely remember what I wore or what I did, so I’m keeping this one short and sweet. The month flew by in a whirlwind for reasons I’ll share soon (but not yet) and somehow, it’s literally the end of December and 2018. Unfortunately, I didn’t get manyContinue reading “What I Wore (and Did) in November 2018”

Spooky (Not-So) Scary Halloween at Disney World

Disney is definitely one of my favorite vacation spots. It reminds me of my childhood and it’s just so magical and light and fun. So, for Bill’s 30th, we thought there was no better place to celebrate than in the Happiest Place on Earth! Day 1 – Disney Springs For the first time ever, BillContinue reading “Spooky (Not-So) Scary Halloween at Disney World”

Things I Wore (and Did) in October 2018

To say that October was kind of the best month would be an understatement — like, so many good things happened I don’t even know where to begin. Celebrated Bill’s 30th birthday! Saw Hamilton in Boston! Took an incredible, Halloween-themed trip to Disney (full post to come)! Got great news (which I can share soon)!Continue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in October 2018”

Things I Wore (and Did) in August 2018

Things have been interesting — a mix of good, bad, and stuff in between. At work, August was one of the busiest months I’ve had as it led right up to move-in weekend (arguably the most hectic weekend of the year for marketers in higher ed!). At home, Bill and I have done a littleContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in August 2018”

I Turned 30 in Honduras and It Was Everything

How do you want to celebrate your 30th birthday? My husband, Bill, asked me this a while back and I couldn’t come up with a good answer, so we tabled the discussion for a long time. Then one of us mentioned it would be nice to resurrect a dream we’d had at 25. To celebrateContinue reading “I Turned 30 in Honduras and It Was Everything”

Things I Wore (and Did) in May 2018

May was a truly magical month. I always tend to love May: warmer weather, longer days, and it’s my birth month so I’m very biased. But this May was extra great. First, I was promoted at work, and as of June 4, I’m officially back in the social media realm! I’m so, so, so excitedContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in May 2018”

Living Without Fear in 2018

The end of 2017 is here, and I imagine there are many of us who are pleased to say farewell to the year. While I had many moments of personal triumphs, some days, it was hard to exist as a woman of color in Trump’s America. Nevertheless, I persisted. Nevertheless, we persisted. As a society,Continue reading “Living Without Fear in 2018”

Portsmouth, NH Might Be My New Favorite Place

Sometimes you fall in love with a city, and that’s what happened with Portsmouth. Last December, Bill and I decided that we would forgo traditional Christmas gifts and instead try to gift each other memories in the form of weekend getaways. We would each pick a place that we felt the other would enjoy visitingContinue reading “Portsmouth, NH Might Be My New Favorite Place”
