Here it is, year 27.

When I envisioned my future I never really had a clear idea of where I would be or what I would do. I thought maybe I would have a kid, but probably not. I thought I would be married. I had no vision of where I would like, but I knew it wouldn’t be Puyallup.

I never saw Texas in my future. I never saw being so into fiber arts. In my earlier life I would always say “I’m not creative!” and now I know that really every one is. I never saw working daily in advertising. I never saw having uncertainty about my faith. I never pictured being aunt and having a niece and nephew. I never saw living only 25 mins away from my family.

All of those are surprises, but I guess that is what makes life interesting.

One thing that I am really proud of is accepting this year that I needed to get some help. So with a drum roll please… I started going to therapy. I have only been going for a few short weeks but I already sense a shift occurring.

Things I love: Sonic Diet Coke with Lime. Michael. Watching Lularoe Periscopes but never buying anything.
Things I hate: People texting while they drive
Normal Day: Work before 9am, lunch, exercise class, weaving, tv, bed.
Shoes: Birkenstocks.
Fave Outfit: Leggings with an oversized mens t-shirt.
Places Traveled: DC, Chicago, Iceland, Denmark, Paris, Sweden, NYC, Arizona, Utah

Encanto Birthday Party – Decor, Activities, Food and More!

Our Encanto birthday party was fantastical and magical! The best part was that my son actually got what was going on. The week before the party (he was turning three) he kept saying, “No Mom’s birthday, no Dad’s birthday, my birthday” and it was just about the cutest...

Need some Encanto Birthday Party Ideas? It’s time to talk about Bruno! This is the first year my son grasps the concept of gifts and birthdays and it has been so adorable to see him get into it. Earlier this month I suggested we do an Encanto Party and he got so...



I turned 30. Normally I write a blogpost commemorating the past year but this year it is two months late. Which I think speaks to the crazy year that I have had. I was making a list (and if you know me, you know I live by the list) of things that have happened over...
