well rested

I’m happy to report that my self-prescribed isolation sleep study was effective last night. I got a full night of peaceful, uninterrupted rest and even woke up a little early {unheard of}!! I’m giving half the credit to a silent room, and the other half to the placebo effect. When…

neapolitan

Gotta love a dress that reminds me of one of my favorite childhood ice creams {if it had an extra stripe of blueberry?}. Although, I usually only ate the chocolate, so I guess it’s weird that I demanded it on every trip to the grocery store. Can we talk about…

so fresh and so clean

I think I deserve a cookie for making it through an entire work day without a single spot or stain on my white denim. Maybe a sugar cookie; I’d hate to ruin all this good progress with a dropped chocolate chip. Can we talk about how much I love an…

the crash and burn.

You know how sometimes, despite your best efforts to cultivate balance and harmony and structure and rainbows in your day-to-day, life hits you with an unexpected fast-pitch series of hard balls and you hit the wall? Well, I smacked into it late last week — violently and face-first — and…
