When I made my list of goals for 2015, I realized how little I had given back and realized it was time to finally do something. So I volunteered at PAWS Chicago yesterday–something I’ve never done because I thought it would be too hard. Bianca and I spent 30-45 minutes trying to …

The first work week of 2016 has almost come to and end, and aside from a slightly rocky start on Monday that included spilling coffee all over my white sheets and Buddy fell down 4 steps within the first 15 min of the day (and him throwing up on my …

Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for a new year and a fresh start. The first half of 2015 wasn’t great for me. Sure, there were highlights like our trips to Montana and Austin, but once the trips were over, I ended up having …

I turned 33 last month. Not a milestone age, but there was something about this birthday that made me think about the past and future. About what I’ve done and where I’m going. Because there’s no escaping it–I’m in my 30s now. After a great co-working session and lunch with Alaina last week …

I found a place in a random neighborhood in Chicago that was just too good to pass up. I’ll miss my morning walks by the lake but think this is a good move. At least I hope so. Bigger apartment. Outdoor space. An office. Lower rent. Shorter cab rides downtown.

The following seems to hold true each year, but I cannot believe how quickly 2013 flew by. It was both a wonderful and trying year for me, but I suppose every year comes with its highs and lows. In the end, I learned a lot and came out a stronger …

I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions. In fact–I don’t really make them. I prefer to create a list of goals for the year. Some I know I’ll accomplish (or work my ass off trying) and others I hope to accomplish. I did not do everything on my ’12 …

Happy New Year! I cannot believe another year has come and gone. Maybe it’s just me, but this was one of the most life changing years of my life, and I cannot believe how quickly it flew by. The two biggest game-changers were the launch of The Everygirl and (wait …

I can’t believe it’s 2010. Time is flying by, isn’t it?! This will be the year of my 10 year high school reunion {I’m so old!}. And no, I will not be going. I feel like 2009 was so much better than 2008. I am not sure what it was, …
