real talk tuesday: fight for your right to… payment

Happy Tuesday! Two posts in two weeks, guys! Progress! I’ve been seeing an article floating around Facebook for the last several months that really stood out to me. I first saw the article on one of those random Facebook food pages (that never seem to post about any actual food..?) and eventually saw that it […]

5 tips for buying a house

A few weeks ago, I posted some “hindsight is 20/20” tips for listing your home for sale. Selling felt a little frustrating for us.  But those emotions came more from the timeframe we had to head back east (which we set ourselves, so the “under the gun” feeling came very much from my own procrastination, let’s […]

on the other side of “what if?”

When I was little– probably around four or five– and learning how to swim, I would wear my trusty “bubble” floaty religiously.  I didn’t want to be anywhere near the water without it.  I loved to swim– and still do, actually, but being the more timid kindergartner that I was, I was not interested in trying […]

finally a sale I can get behind

I have never been a couponer, nor a bargain hunter, nor big on any kind of savings that I had to go out of my way to get.  As in, Kohl’s cash, and their 15%, 20%, & 30% off coupons they basically shoved down my throat in the mail each week were about as far […]

when life comes full circle. in your twenties??

So… I bought a business last month. If you know me, then you know I’m the constant down-player.  I downplay most things I’m doing, and I seldom vocally “own” anything I do. For example: photography. I drafted contracts and collected money for my services.  By definition, a “professional” photographer is one who collects payment vs. an “amateur” […]

winter portraits!

Sharing my blog post from my photography website today!   Snow is just around the corner!  Who’s excited!?  Ha.  No one.  Except for me.  For literally one reason. Winter pictures! Throwing it back back this Friday to last November when Christmas came early, & a brand new 50mm lens was delivered to my house and […]
