2020 Travel Wishlist


This has quickly become one of my favorite blog posts of the year & one that I so look forward to crafting! I can't believe that this is already the third year I am writing this - you can see last year's post here & 2018's here! Not only is it fun to daydream about where my travels will take me each year, but it's also great to look back at the end of each year and see where I was lucky enough to go.

What I Learned in 2019


At the end of every year I find it so important to look back & reflect on what this year has given us, how we have grown on a personal level, and what we have learned in the past 365 days. The lessons might be small or they might be mighty & life changing, but regardless of their magnitude, anything learned is helping to shape us into the best and truest version of ourselves.

This year was a good year. One of the best to be honest. But with that being said, it was still full of little lessons (little, albeit important). If I looked around there were many things to be learned this year, and as always for that I am thankful.

Without further ado, here is what 2019 taught me. I hope it inspires you to reflect on your past year & discover how you've grown in the past three hundred & sixty five days.

Favorites Things of Twenty Nineteen

If you've been following the blog since the beginning, then it comes as no surprise to you that I love New Years. There's something so bittersweet & beautiful about saying goodbye to the past 365 lived days, while simultaneously welcoming the promise of 365 fresh new days. I love to look back, reminisce, and reflect (which I have & will share - stay tuned!), but this post is a little lighter and a little more fun!

I thought, why not look back on the year & play favorites a little bit! The idea started simply by me noticing things that have truly been my go-to's throughout the course of the year, and then it sparked this idea of thinking about all the things that brought me joy this year. So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite things - both tangible & intangible - from twenty nineteen!

The End of a Decade


A few weeks back, I sat on my work break at four am and blissfully went through my end of the year Spotify playlist. As I sat there smiling, walking down memory lane of the past year, it suddenly dawned on me - on December 31st we are not just saying goodbye to the year but to an entire decade. 

Woah.

Gift Guide for Her


When seeking inspiration for my twenty nineteen gift guide for her, I kept finding myself drawn to the things that I love so much. Oftentimes I feel that some of the best gifts are the things that bring you joy - if they bring joy to you personally, there is a good chance someone else on your list will find joy in them as well!
