Life Lately 5.16.14

Screen shot 2014-05-15 at 9.15.45 AM

Life has been pretty one-note lately. No high-highs or low-lows of which to speak. A few weeks ago I took a good hard look at what I want out of this year (can you believe it’s May?) and realized the resounding themes had nothing to do with drankin’ on a Monday night. You know.

I’ve been running a lot lately (rejoice!) and this gives me ample time to overthink my life. I think nearing the midpoint of the year is always a good time to check in and reassess what you’re going for. For me the theme of this year is career and money and just securing my own foundation. I am, for the first time, super comfortable saying I want money and I want more of it and that doesn’t make me terrible. I don’t know why I always thought otherwise.

I also came to a jarring realization recently that this is the first time I’ve ever been comfortably, happily, securely on my own. I had the college boyfriend and in the midst of wallowing in that breakup came upon the post-college boyfriend and in the midst of wallowing in that breakup came upon the post-post-college boyfriend. I don’t know how I never saw that cycle or considered myself that girl, but I finally clearly declared that this is a good time to be just me and to focus on stuff like my friends and my family and my job. I kind of can’t believe this is the first time I’m in this space. I always thought those things were what I wanted and prioritized, but sometimes we say one thing and do another.

So anyway, end rambling diary entry. Everything is awesome and I love my life right now. Here are snapshots of what’s been up lately…

[I made some coconut whipped cream and ate it on everything all week. We’re moving into a new office and work and it is awesome. I got a Raspberry Pi and work and have grand plans to turn it into a motion sensor camera for monitoring the cats. 5Church turned two last night so I went to celebrate with my favorite people. And drank entirely too much champagne. I’ve been putting that $6 peplum top to work–the cost per wear is like pennies at this point. It’s Tilly’s birthday! I’ve had that little T-Rex for one year today.]

PS – Next year’s theme is travel. Already planning on it.


  1. All great things! I’m obsessed with that outfit by the freaking way. Happy weekend 🙂

  2. love, love, love the shoes you’re rockin’ with the peplum-shirt outfit. mind sharing the deets?

    We have a raspberry pi at home to monitor our dogs! We send it an email, it detects whether or not the sender is authorized (us only), takes a photo and posts it to a special doggy twitter account. I’m sure the half of my household who knows how to make things like this happen would be happy so share his coding with you to make this project super easy!
