Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday. I just wanted to pop in to say hello – it’s been over a month since I’ve posted anything and I felt like I was neglecting the blog. BUT. I’m excited to share that I will have new content coming. May is also forecasting to be a busy month but I’m hopeful I will still be consistent in posting. So keep an eye out!
The past month has been nothing but studying. I took part 1 of 3 of my professional exams (becoming a licensed interior designer via NCIDQ) so pretty much all of my time an energy was spent there, hence, the lack in posting. While I’m here though – thank you to all of my followers and welcome to all of my new ones, I hope you enjoy this as much as I love sharing it.
Ps. How dreamy is that blue chair? I wish that’s what I was sitting in while studying!
As much as I wish that photo was our dining room it isn’t. But, today I’m sharing the dining room in our apartment. This little project was totally unplanned. It came about a few weeks ago during a brunch Pete and I hosted.

It has definitely been some time since I’ve posted on here. Happy 2018! The end of 2017 for me became challenging. Peter and I moved in together, we attended two weddings (one I was a bridesmaid in), work became busy in what felt like overnight with new challenges, I applied to take my professional license exams, and I networked with a recruiter for opportunities which lead to a conversation with a potential employer.
Among all of the events and challenges, I realized how stressed out and unhappy I was.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve had the urge to write or even the time to write. Quite the excuse huh? But this past month has been non stop bridesmaid duties and a designer house show (which I will divulge into in a later post) and Peter moving in – so starting a new chapter. Needless to say, I think I’ve got a groove back and I’m super excited about it.

I just wanted to pop in to share something I’ve been thinking about. In the midst of what feels like a pretty overwhelming time – between preparing for Pete to move in and weddings, I’ve realized the importance of saying yes to all things spontaneous.
A month or so ago, one of my girlfriends from work (what you could call my “work bestie”) wanted to go to the beach. Now, we joke on a regular basis that we’re just going to leave at lunch and escape to the beach (we’ve never done that).

Hi guys! It’s been a while since my last post. I apologize, things have been super crazy and seem to only be getting crazier.
Last weekend, Pete and I decided to do an extended weekend getaway to Washington D.C. (we were trying to stay fairly local). We had such a nice time last year that we wanted to go back this year. So Friday morning we headed down.

*Quick shout out to my 5 new followers (totaling 6 now) thank you so much!*
While we’re on the topic of good habits and inspiration, let’s throw goals in there. I want to share my biggest goal right now. A conversation came up at work with one of my co-workers who asked me what my goals were. My first instinct was “I don’t know, losing 20 pounds” but then I took a second and thought about it. I told her that in terms of work and my career (which turns out, was the context in which she was asking), I’d like to get my professional license (she is also in pursuit of hers) and be knowledgeable in field of interior design.
