On Finding Yourself


I remember feeling so stressed in high school about not knowing what I was going to do with my life. Looking back, it sounds ridiculous, of course. I barely know what I'm doing now, why did I think I would, or even should, have it all figured out by 16? But I knew so many people who had their life mapped out that I felt like I was supposed to too. (Spoiler: None of those people's lives went according to plan, so in the end, it didn't matter anyway.)

February & March Reads

 Book 4:
"Forever, Interrupted" by Taylor Jenkins Reid
When Elsie Porter meets Ben Ross, the connection is unexpected but instant. They fall head over heels for each other, and six months later, they elope. Sadly, their marriage is short-lived. Only nine days after wedding, Ben is struck by a car and killed on impact. While grappling with her own grief, Elsie must also face her mother-in-law, a woman who didn't even know Elsie existed until now. Switching between Elsie's budding romance with Ben and the awkward tension with his mother now, "Forever, Interrupted" is a story about all different kinds of love.

You Get What You Settle For



Last November, I was wandering through a bookstore in Denver with my friend and came across a daily tear-off calendar called "I Am a Feminist" filled with "quotes that empower." After flipping through it, I immediately added it to my Christmas list (because when my family asks me what I want for Christmas, that's the type of thing I write down – calendars, kettlebells, a smoothie cup. Very cool.).

Lo and behold, I got it for Christmas, and it now sits on my desk at work, a nice way to start my mornings. I come in, put my purse and coat away, start up my laptop, and reveal the quote for the day. If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen these. I love them.

One of the quotes in February was, "You get what you settle for" and it's been in the forefront of my mind ever since.

Catching Up After A Month Off Blogging | Sunday Shares


Hello, friends! Wow, it feels weird to be writing on here. I haven't even opened Blogger in about a month.

I wasn't sure if I wanted my first post back to be explaining why I took a break or just jumping right back into it. I'm settling for a little bit of both, because while I'd love to explain, there isn't much to say. Essentially, I succumbed to the February blues.

In January, I was so pumped, and then I kinda hit a brick wall.
