Every year I debate whether or not I should write this post, and every year I write one, because I truly believe that if we don’t look back, we can’t fully move forward, and also because I feel that it’s important to share the heart and the personality behind this company, not just all the […]

When something is on your heart and your mind for a very long time, there is probably a reason for that. When you are unsettled about a decision, it’s ok to do just go for it, even if it feels like it’s “too late” or like you might be taking a step backwards…or at least […]

When Kamra Joosten Photography asked me to help her with a styled shoot, I of course said YES! I immediately jumped into planning a simple, thoughtful, and beautiful styled shoot.

I have started and scraped this blog post at least two dozen times. I’m terrified to share this, but also feel like it’s time. I have ached to scream from the highest peak so that the people who suffer like I do will hear me and know they are not alone and so we can go […]
