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...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Rachel

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,...

What I’m Looking For In A Guy

Alright, I’m back with another post about being single.   And while today’s topic is one that I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined I’d be posting online for the whole wide world to see, I’m feeling spontaneous and going for it.  Partly because: 1. I’ve been...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Michelle

Today we are kicking off a new series on the blog called “I’ve Learned”, in which people share 10 things — any 10 things — that they have learned in life.  I have been looking forward to launching this for months, mostly because I’m just completely curious and excited to...

One Little Word 2014

One Little Word 2014

I’m the first to admit that I’m not the best at sticking with new year’s resolutions.  Heck, I even fell off the bandwagon multiple times with my three December Daily goals this past month, like, starting on Day 3.  I know. By contrast though, I’ve found the idea of choosing...

New Christmas Traditions

After having spent the month of December in Europe last year, it was fun to be back home with my family in Wichita this Christmas.  My sister and brother in law were in town from Chicago, my pup was looking very merry for the occasion, and we were all...

December Stitch Fix Review

Time for another Stitch Fix review!  Man, this is now my fourth month with Stitch Fix, and I feel like the fixes are starting to come quickly!  I mean, don’t get me wrong — it’s totally fun to have those little teal boxes with brand new clothes show up...

10 Photos NOT To Post For Online Dating (Guys Edition)

Happy holidays, everyone!!  I’m back with another post in my series on being single.  And since this time of the year can sometimes be a bit of a downer for singles, I thought we’d lighten the mood with the topic that never fails to entertain — online dating photos....

Give A Granola Bar

Somehow I have found myself in conversations with friends multiple times this past month about how to respond when someone on the street asks you for money.  Now that I live downtown, and go for daily walks, and run most of my errands around the neighborhood, I find myself...
