A Weekend in San Francisco

This past weekend Sydney, a close friend from back in the high school days, and I traveled to San Francisco to celebrate a wedding.

Quick Guide to Austin Favorites + Weekend Recap

Have you ever been to Austin, TX? Austin is one of my favorite cities, not just because it’s where I did my undergrad (hook ’em!). I love how it’s completely Texas but also energized with expressive people, entrepreneurs, and creative-thinkers from all over. If I’m being completely transparent though, I’m a little worried with how […]

When life hands you lemons…

I was a baton twirler in high school, so naturally I juggle. My backup career is to join the circus. Barefooted. ^ This book (highly recommend!) is what got me thinking about this topic. Not the joining the circus as a solid Plan B, but the topic of “When life hands you lemons…” You get […]
