Friendship changes as you grow older and you realize that you may not always agree with your friends, like the same things, or have the same goals. One day you might have a disagreement with your best friend over something and you’ll feel horrible, but true friends can overcome anything. They hold your hand when you’re scared, wipe your tears when you’re sad, and laugh with you on the good days. They accept you for […]

Kaya loves rainy days, good books, and cute clothes. She spent the day cuddling in bed with Summer the cat, reading some Bret Easton Ellis, and trying on her new outfit for summer vacation. She put on her favorite lipstick shade and lounged around, waiting for her best friend Delilah to come over, but as usual, Delilah was running late. There was a time in Kaya’s life when she was very lonely after moving to […]

My blog has always catered to adults who need some fashion, home, and life inspiration, but after cleaning out our closets and discovering my old American Girl Dolls and going on a nostalgia trip, I’ve decided to create a new blog series called The Doll Diaries for all of the young girls who are missing out on school, friends, events, and celebrations. I want to inspire little girls to dream big and stay creative in […]

DIY CACTUS PLANT 🌵 Hey there! I am sure anyone whose still quarantining and remaining cautious is feeling bored and tired. I’ve been spending a lot of time creating, writing, and online shopping, of course. I’ve also spent as much time as possible outside. I drove to the beach the other day, go for walks every day, and hangout with my animals. I love exploring the forest and state parks, too. I’m lucky enough to […]

Outdoor Living I know it feels as though we’re living in an episode of The Twilight Zone and we’re unsure of when life will fully return to normal. But, I’m a glass half full kinda gal. On the bright side, this time at home has awakened creativity, change, and motivation in many. I’m aware of the painful truth that for others this time at home has been brutal and for some, even deadly. There are […]

Happy Mother’s Day I woke up this morning and walked out onto our deck, soaking in the warmth of the sunshine. I breathed in my favorite day of the week and waited for my guys. Andrew walked into our living room with Greyson, who was pulling a little red wagon planter filled with presents. I held back tears of joy as I looked at my son’s beaming smile and I took a moment to thank […]

Homemaker Chic When hearing the word “homemaker” what image comes to mind? Do you picture Donna Reed from The Donna Reed Show? Are you envisioning a more modern, glamorous housewife, like Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Shockingly, the word housewife sounds retro to many and quite old school with so many powerful, strong, and talented women shaking the ground beneath us and creating positive waves in their workplace, in government positions, […]

Easter Planning With a Toddler 💜🌷🐥 Despite the dark cloud looming over all of us, I’ve finished putting together Greyson’s Easter basket and his Easter outfit arrived the other day. It’s adorable and I can’t wait to take photos with my family. Along with Easter basket planning, I bought enough plastic, pastel eggs to do an Easter egg hunt that morning. I will always think of Easter as a fresh, beautiful start to Spring. I […]

Hi loves. I know that many teachers and parents are struggling with the thought of school being home-based and anxiety from not knowing when kids will return to school. There’s an underlying fear that we will never return to a normal lifestyle and for parents and teachers that fear has become quite overwhelming. Writing has saved my life more times than I can count and has been a therapeutic outlet during times of stress, fear, […]
