Hey friends! You guys were so sweet in regards to my latest post revealing our teeny, tiny apartment. I felt really loved and every person that’s been to our humble abode in person says, “This is so cozy!” and “It’s actually a lot more spacious than what I imagined!” so that always makes us feel … Continue Reading

We moved, y’all! Finally. The time came and we took the plunge. I’m sitting here typing this while looking out my window (we’re on the 20th floor!) at the beautiful city. It’s surreal. Ever since I can remember I’ve wanted to move to a big city and see what life could be like. Now, I’m finally here … Continue Reading

What are the first words that come to mind when you view the photo above? Gross? Weird? Odd? Crazy? Intense? Quirky? Fun? Annoying? Nontraditional? For me the words “wild” and “free” pop into my brain pretty quickly. I imagine this girl to have a messy bedroom, a carefree spirit, and a witty personality.
