Friday Flowers

I’ve decided to start a new little tradition in my home — Friday flowers. I used to think that I wasn’t one of those girls who loved flowers.  But I’ve come to find — especially during the cold and gray days of winter — that I in fact really...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Janelle

Today I’m happy to introduce you to one of the first friends that I was introduced to when I moved to KC nine years ago — Janelle! Janelle and I met when we were both working down the hall from one another in the basement of a local megachurch.  There...

10 Reasons To Attend The True/False Film Fest

For years, I’ve heard rumors about the  True/False Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri. Rumors that it’s hands-down the best curated documentary film festival around.  Rumors of epic parades.  Rumors of smart and quirky and hilarious events galore.  Rumors of a college town and even some of the most unexpected...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Kerry & Nathan

Actually the title for today’s post should be 10 Things We’ve Learned, as my good friends Kerry and Nathan are tag-teaming this one. I met these two lovebirds at church maybe five-ish years ago.  But I’m still a bit in awe of the fact that they met each other more than a...

Blogging can be a total roller coaster. Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down.  Sometimes your traffic spikes and grows, sometimes it plateaus and declines.  Sometimes you have tons of new ideas and stories to share, sometimes you have total writer’s block and nothing to say.  Sometimes you feel confident,...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Cate

It’s no secret that I love my neighbors.  For these past two years that I’ve lived in downtown KC, they have made this place feel like no less than home.  And one of the people I have most to thank for that is this great girl — Cate. Cate...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Liz

I feel like our next guest-poster in the “I’ve Learned” series hardly needs an introduction, because it seems like the whole world already knows and loves Liz from The Lemon Bowl!  (Or as her name fondly pops up in my phone, Liz Lemonbowl.)  ;) People who’ve had the chance...

February Stitch Fix Review

I’m back with another Stitch Fix review!  Sadly, I ran out of time to snap and post photos of my January fix from Stitch Fix.  (Yes, my success rate with mailing those darn packages back in time is mirroring my track record with returning library books = not good.)  But...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Jeff

Many of you may not recognize that guy up there, but if you’ve visited this blog, you’ve seen a glimpse of his many (many) talents.  That’s right, today I’m happy to be introducing you to Jeff — the guy who designed this blog and has been my faithful web...

10 Tips For Sundance Film Festival Attendees

For those of you who missed it, I had the chance to travel to Park City last month with Sarah to cover the Sundance Film Festival.  And we had a blast! We soaked in the beauty of Utah, met all sorts of great people, ate some (mostly) great food, and...

We had a fantastic response to the kickoff to our I’ve Learned series on the blog.  So I’m stoked to continue on today with this post from my friend, Rachel. I met Rachel over a decade ago when we were both undergraduate music majors at Southwestern College in Kansas.  Nowadays,...
