A Month to Remember: July 2020

With July wrapping up and August kicking off this coming weekend- it’s hard to imagine that there’s only a few weeks left in Summer 2020- and what an unprecedented Summer it’s been.

Summer- As Seen From the Archives…

The “On This Day” and archive features on social media are such interesting things- moreso in this ongoing age of COVID-19 and especially during the Summer.

For Kelsey…

I have written, edited, deleted and re-written this post no more than four or five times over these past few days- each time feeling like the words I tried to use to convey the significance of such a loss to the world and describe such an incredible, beautiful person were never good enough. I would […]

Chocolate and Carbs: The Solo, Self-Care Valentine’s Day…

I know Valentine’s Day is a fairly divisive holiday that gets a mixed reaction depending on who you ask about it. Some people love it- making grandeur plans, wearing a lot of red or pink, decorating everything with heart-shaped-what-have-you, the works- and other people absolutely hate it. Often calling it a “Hallmark Holiday” used to […]
