the happenings


Dear Readers,

Lately, I have been receiving the most encouraging comments from you on my posts. I feel honored to have created a space where such beautiful people can come and be real! Your honest words fill me with so much peace and joy and heck...they help me feel like I'm not that much of a loony after all.

In honor of your authenticity, I haven't been posting much! Sometimes blogging turns into 'filler' posts just to keep people occupied. But I'm not really about that. I like to cut to the main course. And lately my mind has just been all over the place with a ton of appetizers.... and not the good kind of appetizers. More like olives and weird grandma-type finger foods that you don't really even want to see let alone taste.

But I figured that I owe it to you to at least fill you in only my life lately! I guess some pretty big things have been happening around here. So I'm back...with a little bit of a good meal for ya. No steak by any means. But nothing is wrong with a big bowl of mac and cheese, right?

(I'm dieting right now so that I can fit into my dress on my wedding day... can you tell that food is on my mind?)

Which brings me to the point of this post... Here's what's been going on in ma life with some insta-snaps.

- First things first. It's getting chilly out. And I'm in love with life all over again because of the simple fact that Fall is slowly making an appearance!!

- Then there's the fact that I got engaged this summer to my boyfriend of 3 and a half years. Holy cannoli. We are getting hitched in October. Only 29 days away! Woah. I guess if I'm feeling more mushy gushy I'll post about us at a later point. You can also expect some lovely wedding photos. And some wedding planning sarcasm. But basically he's just really swell. And a genius. And pretty damn handsome.

- After my recent move to Springfield, MO I have met so many beautiful, creative women who love to talk for hours around a campfire with wine and beer in-hand, meet up for spontaneous breakfasts, and be so real and loving along each step of the way. The friendship box in my heart is definitely full. That's a good feeling.

- I like writing. And not so much photoshoots of myself or expensive DIYs. So I think my blog will be filled with more writing. Perhaps some of that other stuff here or there. Stick around if you'd like!

Let me know if there's anything you want to hear my thoughts on and you can count on a post! :]



  1. I've just started keeping my blog and I feel so fulfilled. I am amused seeing the daily thoughts I have spilled onto a webpage.

    I'd be interested in seeing that in your blog... What kind of thoughts are filling your mind today? It seems like a really simple concept, and it somehow becomes terrifyingly simple, to just share yourself...

    Happy to hear your life is full and beautiful!!

    1. Hey Hannah! Thanks for the kind words and the feedback. I totally agree with what you said. Sometimes it is the day to day raw stuff that is the most beautiful - not the planned out, picture perfect post. I will definitely be brainstorming a way that I can incorporate a more spontaneous, day-to-day segment on my blog!

  2. First of all, i wanna congratulate you on your engagement! :)
    Secondly, I love the simplicity of your blog and how realistic you are...its what drew me in the first place... guess what I am trying to say is that you should continue to be who you are.

    1. YAY THANK YOU Sophie! I really strive to embrace those things. So your words of encouragement are most appreciated. xo ronnie


I'd love to hear from you :] Questions, thoughts, rants... I love it all.
