I recently spent an afternoon at the Columbus Museum of Art with my grandmother and Adam. It was my first visit and I really enjoyed it. While being a smaller museum, the quality of work and themed rooms really made the visit unique. My favorite pieces were those of Dale Nichols (top image: with his […]

Even though the majority of my trip was spent on Nantucket, I was able to spend an afternoon in Boston! Kellyn and I took the ferry/bus back to Boston on Thursday and I was able to see a bit of the city. The highlights: finally meeting Rachael (and her beautiful baby girl), eating oysters, traveling with [&hel

At the end of September, I’ll be making a trip out to Massachusetts! I’ve been to Cape Cod and Provincetown but this time I’ll be visiting Nantucket and Boston to see Kellyn. I can hardly contain my excitement. If you’re interested in the print I posted above, I found it here.

Hi pals! I’ve actually really missed regular blogging during this 30 Day Photo Challenge caraaaaziness. It’s been SO fun so far but it is a lot of work and I haven’t been able to share what’s been going on or what I’ve been finding on The Internets. Here’s a visual update. Go

I always get a little sad when August comes to an end. In the Midwest, that means autumn is on its way (which is great) but autumn never stays long enough. Winter…well…winter overstays its welcome and makes you dream of summer. Rooftop pools, Jeni’s summer flavors, and weekend cookouts are com

I stumbled across this book/project awhile ago and it’s been in the back of my mind ever since. I tweeted about wanting to write letters to those I care about during the month of September. Obviously, I’ll be a bit busy with The 30 Day Photo Challenge (WHICH STARTS TOMORROW!) but I’m thinking

Hello my dears. Lots of exciting things have been happening in my design life and I’m excited to start sharing projects with you again. I feel like I haven’t posted anything that I’ve created since my site re-design! Anyways, lots of work during the week but I’ve left my weekends for fun

My girl crush #5 is on Mila Kunis. Whether she’s Jackie on That 70’s Show, Meg on Family Guy, or acting in some other movie, she always has the right amount of sass and style. Interested in reading about my other girl crushes? Read up on Natalie, Nicki, Cate, and Kate.

Cy Twombly, an American artist, passed away at the beginning of last month. The news saddened me and memories flooded back to when I first discovered this magical painter that (for the first time in my life) seemed to create pieces that connected so well to my heart. To many that may seem silly but […]

What a bad blogger I’ve been this week! Desh and I are here to explain ourselves a bit. (No, blogging has nothing to do with him…but he looked so cute that I had to take this picture with him before bed!) Anyways, I’ve been a bit busy. Isn’t everyone? I know. Some things I can’t [&

Last weekend Adam and I had a lovely day at the park. We read, played on our phones, and I taught him how to shoot with my digital SLR. He loves it! I’ve always been on the other side of the camera shooting so it was fun to be on the front side.

Today marks two years that I’ve been here in Columbus, Ohio and I couldn’t be happier about the city that I choose to call home. I grew up in Illinois and so Ohio never really crossed my radar until Adam got a job here before we got engaged. I’m not an expert when it comes […]

We celebrated our 730 day wedding anniversary on Monday. I started thinking of our two year anniversary in days because when people have kids, they’ll refer to their 1.5 year old as their 18-month old. I don’t really do weeks/months well so it always throws me off. And I’m bad at math so that

The days are pretty predictable around here. Sometimes it feels like everyone is quitting their job for something new, traveling to far off places, or having babies. Adam and I just celebrated our second wedding anniversary and after two years, it feels like a bit of a haze lifted and we were able to talk [&hel

A day-to-day look at what I do everyday. I go to work (not pictured) I workout, we make dinner, I sit at my messy desk and design. Oh and I get to hang out with the cutest pup ever. I have about 10 shots left on my Canon A-1. I’ll probably get the film developed […]

It’s Desh’s 2nd birthday today! We celebrated by buying him a new frisbee, a raw hide bone and turning on our air conditioning. A long walk is yet to come! I think he’s gotten cuter with age but I’m biased.

Quick birthday recap: sushi, fondue, sweet potato fries, vinyl, puppy, off work, hot dogs, lace, great weather, shopping, friends. Basically, amazing. So far I love being 24. Now I get to feel even older this weekend watch my little brother graduate from high school AND see my best friend’s baby. Time fli

Life. Has. Been. Crazy. In all the good ways. Since the last weekend in March I feel like I’ve been running around at 120 miles per hour. We’ve moved, seen both our families, dealt with car issues, my BEST FRIEND HAD HER BABY, we’ve made time for our social lives, I launched my new site, [&hel

I’m calling in a sick day. I’ve been sleeping an insane amount and the doctor prescribed me four different types of medicine. No One Day post today! Check back next Wednesday…I promise to be better soon. Photo found here.

I’ll be honest, I get kind of annoyed when bloggers become mommy bloggers. Don’t get me wrong–I think becoming a mother is a wonderful, amazing thing that you can’t possible disconnect from who you are. BUT, I’m not there yet and so I have a hard time staying connected to the blog
