Gingerbread Martini Recipe

It is FINALLY here!!! My Gingerbread Martini recipe!! A lot of other recipes out there require a gingerbread syrup, or use ice cream. While those are great, I wanted to try and make one with just spices so it was a little easier to throw together for a party… or just for yourself! I added […]

You are Not a Failure

As I habitually move through my nightly bedtime ritual: remove makeup, wash face, serums, and moisturizers, all of a sudden I am left with my bare reflection starring back at me. A reflection that quite honestly I’m harder on than I should be. Nevertheless, over the years, I have seen myself change. Albeit sometimes overnight, […]

Why We Eloped

I guess I should start off by saying we didn’t really elope. The definition of eloping is “running away secretly in order to get married” and we were definitely not secretive about it. It was more a wedding that was just the two of us and no one else.  I know some people are shocked […]

The Groundhog Was Right

I very rarely believe that pesky little groundhog when he sees or does not see his shadow. Mostly because I don’t think he has the best track record of being correct. However, this year he has hit the nail on the head with six more weeks of winter. We have had unusually cold temps for […]

Carry On Essentials!

If the last five years have taught me anything, it is that I am an over packer. (And that I wait till the last minute to actually pack….stay up the majority of the night and finally finish with a good hour to sleep!) With how many flights I have been on in those years, you […]

Goodbye January!

Well, this first few weeks of school has kicked my butt! I am thanking all things holy for the weekend getaway we had to Cali before school started. Somehow, I saved one of my hardest quarters ever for my last term… and that includes the term I took 20 hours. I had no life because […]
