A warm, inviting, up-and-at-‘em color palette! Is there anything quite as refreshing as the beginning of a new year? I’m usually a neutrals gal, but I’m really feeling these vibrant colors for January — I definitely wouldn’t mind beginning every morning this way!


Finalizing my 2019 goals — It feels like I always have several dozen goals floating around in my head, and the start of 2019 has been no different. This week, I’m sitting down, writing them out, and giving myself actions steps as well!

The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair — One of my goals for 2019 is to read more non-fiction, and I am so excited to dive into this book! A history of color, pigments, dyes, and culture seems like THE perfect read for my tastes — and it definitely helps that the book itself is so beautifully designed!


All the soups and ramen, please! I’ve been looking up all sorts of warm and cozy Crockpot recipes on Pinterest, and I can’t wait to try them out — especially this Chicken Corn Chowder, or this Pork Ramen with Acorn Squash!

30th birthday festivities! I’m not one for big birthday hooplas, but I think I’ve got a little party in me for the big three-oh ;) Current plans include coffee in bed, a little bday shopping, and then dinner and drinks at one of my favorite restaurants in town!
