What happens when you follow the breadcrumbs of your curiosity?

When I came up with the idea to do a 100 day blogging challenge, I was desperate for a chance. I had begun to feel boxed in and creatively blocked as the result of a super specific niche that I had created for myself. I was looking for a way to shake things up, to write without overthinking, and to try on new styles of writing. Writing for 100 consecutive...

14 of my favorite posts from #100DaysBlogging

One thing that I found interesting throughout the 100 Days of Blogging, was that the posts I loved weren’t always the most popular ones. Sadly, I can’t go back and see which posts were the most popular for the entire duration of the project, but I CAN share with you my favorites. So here they are, in the order I wrote them, with a little bit about WHY I love...

I dreamed about it. I did it. Now here are the highlights.

I’ve been thinking (and talking) a lot about what the last 100 days has meant to me and what I’ve learned — about myself, about blogging, about life in general — in the process. While I’m not 100% certain I can fully speak to the impact of this experience, I did want to share some of my initial thoughts. Below are 10 things that stand out so far: Public accountability...

Do you know what can you accomplish in 100 days?

Alternative titles for this post: HOLY SHIT, I did it. And, The end of (100) days. But Headline Analyzer didn’t like those as much. JERK. I’m still trying to process everything that has transpired over the last 100 days, but at the end of it all, I’m really fucking proud of myself for doing it. I honestly didn’t think I had it in me — the dedication, the stamina, the...

The Mellow Yellow Smoothie

I straight up didn’t get the chance to photograph this one, let alone take a sip, before The Babe grabbed it out of my hands and began to ooh and ahh over it. She was enamored by the color and couldn’t wait to put the straw in and slurp it up. Admittedly, I felt the same way about it, but was able to show a bit more restraint. I guess...

Contentment is a beautiful place to be.

This weekend has been kind of amazing. It’s the first time since February that I’ve had almost an entire weekend to myself. I got a massage, I had space to write and create, I even ran an event through Propelle. It’s also the first time that I had this space and didn’t feel guilty about it. Instead, it felt important. Important for The Babe to spend time bonding with her...

Things I’m kind of obsessed with lately.

It’s late on Saturday night, I’m sitting here watching an NCIS Marathon and parts of Bad Boys II, trying to wrack my brain about the things that I’ve been obsessed with. You’d think it would be EASY to come up with a list like this, considering it’s about things that I’m totally into, but NO. The minute I sit down to write one, my mind instantly draws a blank. Too...
