freedom

If you’ve ever had to make a big fork-in-the-road, planning-for-the-rest-of-your-life, no-turning-back decision in your life {which I’m sure most of us have}, then you understand just how exhausting, confusing, and sometimes seemingly quit-worthy the process can be. How do I know what the right choice is? Is option A a good pick? Is option B wrong? Are any of […]

shop tour: taim boutique, laguna beach

Ahhhh Laguna Beach – how I love thee! Laid-back, seaside living with a touch of Santa Barbara chic (not to mention oodles and oodles of the most adorable, charming cottages EVER). Among all that goodness, a blue-shingled shop along S. Coast Highway and Cress Street – Taim Boutique. Two years ago I met Kendra Pearce, shop owner and stylist, at a CCOC […]

a welcome back

So… how does one begin a blog post a freaking year after some pretty consistent writing, crafting, exploring, adventuring, eventing and general awesomeness? I feel a bit like Brittany Spears attempting to make a comeback after dating Justin Timberlake, touring the world in pigtails and crop tops, then going through the whole shaving-the-head phase and falling off the […]

hello + hi

  It’s officially fall! The days are crisp, the skies wonderfully clear, and I love the aroma of pumpkin around every corner. E and I are traveling up to the family cabin this month, and I’m looking forward to some welcoming R&R. The last few weeks have been a tough bunch; friends and family going […]

Hey all! First things first – it’s. been. ages. It’s been about 8 weeks since I started my new job at the video agency, and I’ve been loving this crazy season of learning, growing and development. God has really shown me how to trust Him as He leads me through new challenges every day. And […]

ridin’ waves

I realize the title of this post is quite ironic since I have never actually surfed (sad), but nonetheless, it perfectly describes the ebb-and-flow of this next season of life that I am entering into. While it may come as a surprise to some, I’ve been actively searching for a new occupation for the last 10 months […]

hello there

Long time no post! I can assure you that I am alive and well. Life, as it seems, can get pretty busy; and there’s also the realization that sometimes, I just need to chill and do absolutely nothing. Bloggers: you understand that the act of maintaining a blog is, (rather unknowingly at first), a serious dedication. Taking […]

weekend recap

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. – John Ruskin The weekend brought in a chill, but I just love the coziness it created. Surrounded by amazing company, yummy food and the most beautiful settings (maybe ever), our […]

featured on: the portraiteer

It was a rainy, cozy and perfect day to meet up with Harvard-trained visual studies and English literature guru, Nicole Anderson. This self-confessed bookworm, lover of (well, love) and seasoned photographer quickly became my fast friend. Nicole is one of those personalities that oozes smart. She is hungry; desiring to know the in’s and out’s of […]

daily beauty routine

Happy Friday, friends! The weather here has been cool and rainy – not so crazy that you can’t run out and do anything, but just rainy enough to walk around with an umbrella and sport a cute jacket (and for the record, I love it)! This morning I had an amazing photo session with Nicole […]
