I am beyond excited for today’s ‘A Day in the Life’ because Michaela and I actually went to high school together! We’ve kept up with each other ever since and watching her takeover the world one interior design project at a time has been such a blessing to me. Not only is she an incredible designer, she is also the founder of the dreamy Bloom Workshop. I’ve had the pleasure of attending one of her workshops and it was nothing short of a dream come true. To learn more about Michaela, head to her about page here. To learn more about how she balances all the roles in her life from business owner to dog-mama, keep reading!
I often post photos and videos of what I’m cooking for myself and my crew and so often, I get a message asking for the recipe of what I just made. Instead of sending link after link, I promised a blog post sharing a few current favorite new recipes I tried and immediately added to my go-to category. I’m the person that waits on pins and needles for someone to share the recipe when something looks fantastic so here’s my lineup, plus how I make each item gluten-free and vegan.
Hi Friends! It’s Friday! This week jumped on my back and kicked me in the ribs. That visual is a little intense, but it was one of those weeks where you look back and know the only way you got through it was by the grace of God. The week that you spend more time than not asking forgiveness and praying for the fruits of the spirit to overtake you. Joy, patience, peace…all of em’. Send them all my way! But we’ve made it to Friday and all is well.
“Fitting in” is something ingrained in us from a young age. We don’t know exactly what it looks like, but we know we’re supposed to do it. Well, if you take one look at me in a room full of my peers you know I never mastered the whole thing.
Motherhood has many talents, but maybe its most notorious skill is ‘time thief.’ Just when you think you’ve mastered making the most of your 24 hours, something changes and you’re left wondering how you can squeeze it all in again. Like many of us, my evenings are golden and I am trying to master the art of squeezing a full days work into two hours before bed. I’m no expert yet, but here are the things that have helped me make the most of my precious evening hours (instead of burning the candle at both ends and hanging on by a thread. Just me? Okay.)
Once we decided this moving thing was actually happening, we knew it was time to get serious about soaking up all this city has to offer. Our good friends moved away years ago and somehow we’ve seen each other more in recent years than we did when we both lived here! They were in town for the weekend and invited us to the zoo, which was just the motivation we needed to head into the city for the day.
