For the majority of this year (so far), even before Babygirl was born, I’ve been feeling stuck in a creativity rut. Not in the negative sense, but in regards to routines.

Part of the deal, of course, was getting the opportunity to […]



It occurred to me a couple days ago that I hadn’t reviewed my life list in several months. I *love* these realizations. It’s a known fact that simply writing down your goals and dreams is a massive step towards actually making them come true. Don’t ask me how, but writing them down clicks something in […]
