If you’ve been around here for a little while, you’re aware that in the last year or so, I’ve worked really hard to read more and watch less. Overall, I have loved it. For the first year of doing this, I didn’t read business books. For me, reading was a time for me to relax and escape and I didn’t want to keep filling my head with business stuff. I need to shut off. Escape. And it’s been so good for me.Read More
One of my favorite things to do right after moving into a new space was design and hang the gallery wall. We typically would have one gallery wall in the biggest living room space and then also have one in our bedroom. Shortly before we bought our house we lived in an apartment for 8 months, where I had an office. So, I was also able to create a gallery wall of quotes in my office.

As I write this, I am sitting on the couch as my husband and son nap together on the other couch. Knox will be 4 weeks tomorrow. It feels like it’s been forever. But it also feels like I blinked and now he is 4 weeks old. My life has completely changed in every single way since Knox arrived on July 17th, 2017. It’s been the best and hardest four weeks of my life. I never knew I could feel so many emotions all at once. I never knew I could survive with such little sleep. I never knew it would be so hard and amazing all at the same time.Read More
I know it might be hard to imagine, but I actually have a life outside my business! A life that I love! What I share online--for the most part--are aspects of my business and I am sure it can seem that I don’t have a life outside of business. Or maybe I’m wrong and you’re totally aware that I have a life outside my business.Read More
