  1. I will preface this by giving my routine “I don’t have all the answers” schpeel, BUT! I have learned a few key things since I was recently booted out of the nest (fired from my job) and have had to re-work the way my brain has lived for twenty-seven years and although it’s a massive work …

  3. Making the move towards ‘big city living’ was exhilarating, but also came with its fair set of challenges. I fully expected to enjoy exploring new bars, bookstores, and restaurants. But what I didn’t see coming was long commute times in incremental weather, grocery store lines that wrapped back to the deli counter, and rent fees that …

  4. Now that we’re inside a new year, there’s an abundance of information and articles coming at us about how to be our “best selves.” “New year, new you” they say. New me? Uhhhh. It’s not only unrealistic, it’s kind of unreasonable. Stick with me for a minute, because I’m going to propose something radical. If you …

  5. At the end of July, I overheard our in-house photographer, Colleen, chatting about how she had signed up for an upcoming half marathon amongst our Wit & Delight team and I couldn’t help but chime in, “You are going to run 13.1 miles… are you for real?” I couldn’t believe it.

  7. Now that we’ve officially crossed the half-way mark of January, I thought it was only fitting to take a second and check in on each other. How are you doing? How is the new year going so far? I finally took the plunge and tossed out our Christmas tree last weekend. Even though it sure was …

  8. If you ask me, New Year’s resolutions can be a bit like fruitcake: some people love them; others, well, not so much. Although I’m not the biggest fan of that glowing, old-fashioned, holiday dessert that tends to get tossed straight in the freezer, I do love a delicious serving of self-improvement, which is why — year …

  9. Well, that’s not entirely true. Let’s start from the beginning. It was spring of 2015 when I woke up with acute pain in on my right side, concentrated in my upper back and head. It didn’t happen overnight, I had experienced tightness and pain in my right shoulder blade and jaw for a few months, but …

  10. It’s Friday night and I have big plans. I transition from week into weekend through a full production of getting ready. After work, I shower and prep for the night ahead, except I linger a little longer under the shower head, steaming the bathroom up to its full potential. I even use my expensive, fancy shampoo. …

  11. Like millions of other people in the world, I live for the holiday season. The twinkling lights. The constant cycle of cookies in the oven. The Family Stone and Elf playing on repeat. Peppermint and gingerbread EVERYTHING. I mean, what’s not to love? Heck, I even adore the tacky ugly sweaters. Yet as therapeutic as I …

  12. First, write them down. The best way to ensure your needs are met this holiday season is to first acknowledge what they are. Start by writing down a list of the things that make you smile just thinking about them. Keep the list handy during the holidays as a simple reminder to check in with yourself—on …

  13. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a notebook fanatic. The lovely journals in the Anthropologie sale section get me every single time.
