new-year-old-me

As this year comes to a close, I've found myself reflecting on the lessons that I've learned. On the person that I've become- am still becoming. Each year shapes us differently, life's circumstances a chisel, ever defining us. Some years, I've learned, more rigorously than others. This year I've come to a revelation- one that has changed who I … [Read more...]

I love decorating for the Holidays- it's one of my favorite things to do. But, for some reason, I have never really included my bedroom in the decorating. Crazy, right? However, spending money on Christmas decor when I'm already spending like crazy felt wrong to me somehow. That's why I decided to share with you how I decorated my bedroom for the … [Read more...]
