I set a goal for myself to create at least a few art journaling pieces each quarter and I’m so glad I made this a priority. This is a creative activity that I truly love and I enjoy every part of the process. I put it together as a 2 page spread for my in-progress art journaling photobook.Read More
I have made it a habit for the past year to set quarterly goals. I have found this to be really helpful in my life and I have been able to accomplish quite a bit using this plan. We are a few weeks into the 3rd quarter of the year (wow!) so I figured it was time to check in on this.Read More

I’ve decided that this is going to be a new quarterly routine for me.Read More
One of my most cherished possessions is the cookbook my mom gave me when I got married. She hand wrote my favorite recipes in it and I still use that book to this day. I love seeing her handwriting and I wanted to give that same kind of gift to my own daughter when she got married. I was excited to find this beautiful Susan Branch keepsake cookbook on amazon and I've spent the last few months writing out recipes to fill it up.Read More
