weekend shenanigans with addie, mitch, lana, jordan & kendall

One of my favorite things about living in Chicago is that friends are always anxious to stop by and play for a weekend.  This weekend I hosted four of my OU besties: Ashley, Mike, Libby, and Jay (pictured left to right).  Note: They may be referred to as Addie, Mitch, Lana & Jordan- which became their … Continue reading weekend shenanigans with addie, mitch, lana, jordan & kendall

sometimes you just know

This may be the shortest post I've ever written, but I really cannot stay to chat tonight.  Things have busy, but what else is new?  Anyways, today/tonight i got to spend some time with my friend, Michelle, and the adorable little Max (her son) and I feel like I cannot go to bed tonight without … Continue reading sometimes you just know

secret to life: let your friends be there for you (too).

It's no secret on this blog...last week was not my week.  Five full days of being an emotional wreck- yep, that was me.  But I'm happy to report that those have come & gone (at least for now).  I won't lie, I woke up on Saturday still feeling blah, even nearly canceling on a friend's … Continue reading secret to life: let your friends be there for you (too).

i’ll be honest with you and you’ll be honest with me.

Me: "I feel like I can be myself." Julie: "That's how you should always feel." For those of you who don't yet know her, Meet Julie.  The beautiful friend I made during my freshman year at Kent State and one of my dear Ohio ladies that dreams about our joint-return to Columbus...one day (maybe)- and this … Continue reading friends say the words your heart says, but the difference is you like the sound of your friends’ voices better than your own.

you think you’re lost, but you’re not lost. you’re not alone.

Yesterday was a very long day.  The alarm went off at 4 am and I think finally shut my bedroom light off around midnight.  Those hours may or may not paint a clear-enough picture, but like I said, "It was a very long day."  Both a good day and maybe a bad day (at parts); … Continue reading you think you’re lost, but you’re not lost. you’re not alone.
