Things I Like no 2: My Story in Rue Magazine

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The new issue of Rue Magazine is live and there’s an article penned by yours truly on why I’m happy things didn’t work out the way I thought I wanted them to. I shared a little bit of what I went through during my 20s and 30s as well as what it’s like to be happy now when life doesn’t look exactly how I thought it would. It took forever to write this one for a number of reasons, the first being that I’m terrible at writing for any audience that isn’t my blog. It really intimidates me to the point that I just back away entirely, so I decided to pretend it was a post for my blog, got some great tips from Rue’s Managing Editor Kelli Lamb, and went for it.  Check it out.

And a few other things I like this week.

  • omg, yes, navy velvet! a navy velvet sofa is at the very top of my “things for my new apartment” list. i’m in a huge rut right now and have been loving all your pieces on moving and things not going exactly as planned and taking new chances. i’m having a bit of a harder time making the big decision….maybe one day.

    1. Ugh, I’m sorry. Know those feelings so well. And even when everything seems great life can still feel so tough. If there’s ever anything specific you’d like me to write about please let me know! I’d love to (try to) help and always appreciate post ideas.

  • ok 1. NAVY VELVET. YES! makes me want to re-do my whole house.
    2. Because of you, I’ve been on the fence about buying the pumpkin souffle candle because I don’t live near an Anthro store and didn’t want to pay shipping…but I finally splurged and did it. I know it won’t be disappointed with your recommendation! I also have the Living with Pattern book! 3. that RABBIT! so cute and snuggly.
