“This Is Me”

Over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about the movie “The Greatest Showman,” more specifically, the song “This Is Me.” To save you a read, I spoke about how the song had impacted me and had become an “anthem” of sorts to explain how I was feeling as I was navigating life...

The Greatest Showman

Have you seen The Greatest Showman yet? Stop reading right now and go find a copy and watch it if you haven’t. Just kidding. Kind of, not really. It’s by far the best movie I’ve seen in a long time, if not ever, and I will forever watch it over and over again. Why?...

Easter Weekend Reflections

This year, Easter and Good Friday felt a little bit different to me than in years past. I felt like God placed it on my heart to share with you my thoughts from this weekend. First, I feel as though I need to share the sermon from our church from Sunday. It’s not your...

Dare to Dream

I’ve finally gotten the bug again!  Not the best grammar, but let me explain what I mean: I graduated college at the ripe age of 21 (about a year and a half early). I got married about two weeks later and started this military life right off the bat. I went job hunting for...

Valentine’s Day Thoughts

Why does Valentine’s Day have to be miserable? Why can’t it be about loving yourself and loving others? Here are my thoughts on the subject… Growing up, I used to legitimately dreaded Valentine’s Day. I never had anyone to share it with until Nick. But even now, being a military family, Valentine’s Day is...

Word of the Year: Intention

Happy new year! Is it too late to say that? It’s still technically a new year and it’s only February… This post has been sitting in my drafts since January 1st. I’m not going to lie. I’m just the worst at managing my time to get things done and finished. I start a lot...

An Ode to My Husband

Jamie Rubeis Photography This is one of my favorite pictures of us to date, even though it was taken almost three and a half years ago. We were in Vegas for the Marine Corps Ball and Nick’s aunt (who’s a ridiculously talented photographer) was so generous and took some time out of her schedule...

My New Journey – One Without Bread!

I never thought I would ever be gluten-free. EVER. I’ve always said carbs are my weakness; I live for a good sourdough bread or a chocolate cupcake. Homemade baked goods are my kryptonite. Anyone who knows me knows that dessert is my first true love (sorry Nick!). Yesterday was a pretty big milestone for...

Disney Magic

Yesterday afternoon, I went on a spontaneous solo Disneyland trip. And it was amazing. The crowds were low, rose cups were in stock, and magic was in the air. *Rose cups, for those who aren’t aware, first showed up sometime in February (they’re Beauty & the Beast themed) and have been sold out ever...
