Thank you for stopping by.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my life, interests, passions, and my ideas.
& Lastly, Thank you for your attention; whether it’s undivided attention or most definitely divided attention between the family chaos, tv shows, glasses (or bottles) of wine, etc.
I’ve briefly introduced myself here, but I figured I would dive a little deeper into why I decided to start this blog and create this platform for expressing myself.
By day, I work in real estate. Could sound sort of boring at first, but I work for my family’s rental and development business. Which immediately makes it 1000x more exciting and makes me love my work life/career path way too much. When your dad is your boss, it definitely makes for some hilarious stories. With my position, I manage our rental properties and all of the office work that follows suit, help with then oversee the design process, assist in new project developments, you name it. One of the biggest things I value is being able to express myself creatively through work. I always kick myself for not taking enough before and after pictures of projects or renovations! That sums of my day job.
At night is when my creative juices start flowing and I dream about all of the different things I’d love to do, places I’d love to see, if I had infinite amounts of money what would I build? What sort of space would I create to cultivate a sense of community for people? How would I like to inspire other people? You know, big dream sorta stuff. One of those nights, just short of a year ago, is when the idea and concept of starting this blog began. I went back and forth with myself for a long time (and I mean a LONG time) of whether or not I should pull the trigger and go for it. I thought maybe I was late to the game, everyone was doing it, blah blah blah. But then I realized that didn’t matter to me. I’m creating a space and platform to share my thoughts and ideas because I want to! I want to express myself creatively even if no one reads it! I didn’t care, I just felt like I needed to create this space for myself. To let my creative juices continue to flow. To talk freely about what books I’ve read that inspire the absolute hell out of me. To create pretty instagram worthy cheese plates for girls’ nights and share those memories. To document my travel diaries with my loved ones, sort of like my virtual scrapbook to look back on years from now. After realizing all of this, after months of internal back and forth’s in my brain, I decided to take the leap, buy the domain name (because when money is involved, you have to take it more seriously, right?!) and get this bad boy running.
So, with all of that being said, welcome! As you can see from my headings, my posts will revolve mainly around travel adventures, hostessing tips and tricks your friends will swoon over, and book reviews/suggestions that I think you will enjoy because sometimes it’s good for the soul to get lost in a book.
