Why It’s Okay for Change to Be Scary

May 11, 2021

I have to say, I really don’t do my best writing at night. Here I am, at approximately 7:53 pm in Baltimore, and I am multi-tasking between computer work, dinner, vino, and adjusting to my new surroundings. Going back to food; I feel like all I have done is eat […]


Feeling Casual Chic

Happy Tuesday, and day before Cinco de Mayo! Whoop whoop! If you are a fan of margaritas, tacos, and any other authentic Mexican cuisine, you get double the fun this week. Yes, “Taco Tuesday” & an excuse to sip margaritas & eat bottomless chips & salsa tomorrow! Remember, food should […]


A Tavern With a Whole Lot of Expression

April 29, 2021

Happy Thursday! A lot of my conversations yesterday had the same “theme” – April went by SO FAST. I felt like my family and I were just in Denver for the Easter weekend. Now, we are heading into a month full of FUN! Cinco de Mayo, I am (officially) MOVING, […]


My Favorite Gifts for Mother’s Day

April 27, 2021

One thing I have decided that I REALLY do not love – MOVING. Yes it is exciting but stressful. It’s fun decorating & picking out new furniture but it’s overwhelming. Plus, I am in between places right now so I just feel all over the place, literally! I am the […]


My Take On The Mint Julep

It’s Monday, but is it Friday or still the weekend? You know how you wake from a deep sleep and feel disoriented and even “wait, where I am, what day is it, omgosh did I oversleep?” Yes, this was me upon waking and I feel like I have been in […]


My Favorite Casual Date Night Outfit

Dreaming of Summer In Havaianas

April 20, 2021

This line of flip flops may very well be the best EVER! Yes, I know it is towards the end of April, and we are slowly easing our way into the warmer months but there are no rules when it comes to wearing these kinds of “thongs.” I could totally […]


Stop Taking Everything So Seriously

April 19, 2021

Happy, Happy Monday, and April 19th! Is it me, or does it seem that time is just flying by!?!? It’s crazy that it is almost the end of the month and I cannot WAIT for some warmer weather, a little less rain, and looking forward to, finally, be settled into […]


Muddled Lemon Cocktail

April 15, 2021

I am missing California like WOAH. Yes, you heard me – like WOAH. I am hoping that I am going to be getting back SOON. Like June. Maybe July. Happy Thursday, and “Thirsty Thursday” for that matter. That’s right, I am getting a little boozy today because it just feels […]
