    Catching My Eye | 06.18.21

    Happy Friday! Boy am I glad it’s the weekend. It was a long week. I worked late almost every night, and I completely messed up my sleep schedule, so I definitely need rest this weekend. After a year of no plans, everything came back in full force, and I am feeling the side effects of that. How are you fairing in this post-pandemic world or is it just Nashville that feels like it’s completely back to normal? this week’s good things: I bought a couch for my new apartment, and it should only take a couple weeks once I’m moved in to arrive (if you don’t know, couches are delayed for MONTHS right now), I…

    Happy Friday! I had a good week. Anyone else? It’s been awhile since I’ve felt this good, and I’m terrified it’s going to go away (that’s anxiety for you), but I’m soaking it up while I can. This week was jam-packed with meetings, networking events, and late nights of work, but it’s all worth it. this week’s good things: I joined a Nashville bookstagram book club, I’m not as tired this week, I worked our four times this week. one | the power of thought I loved this article about how some people are scared to be happy because the world is such a dark place. But actually, acting happy and working to…

    Spring Favorites | 2021

    I can’t believe it’s already summer here in Nashville. The months are flying by, especially since life is really returning “back to normal” with vaccines being widely available and the warm weather here to stay. I’m wrapping up a few things I loved over the last few months with a spring favorites list. Let’s get started! one | mood boards I create mood boards every month and create a type of collage in my planner. Not only do I love curating the images, but I love scrapbooking them into my daily routine. Being reminded of the things I’m inspired by on a regular basis is a great way to live.…

    Happy Friday! It was my first week back in the office since last March, and boy did it exhaust me! I went to a networking event last night, I got home, and I just cried from how bone-tired I was. It’s okay. All of this is going to be an adjustment, but we are in it together right? I shared some behind the scenes on my Instagram about how I’ve been feeling the last few weeks, but I’m trying to focus on the good things. this week’s good things: We’re back in the office for work and it’s nice to collaborate in person, I got back in the gym twice this week,…

    We are almost halfway through the year which means it’s time to reestablish some of our goals!

May was a pretty good month for me, and I’m excited to see what June holds. Let’s get started!

    Catching My Eye | 05.21.21

    Happy Friday! This week feels like it flew by. I was sick at the beginning of the week — we can thank everyone leaving their houses for the first time in over a year for that — so, I was really just focused on getting better the first three days of the week. I’m really looking forward to this weekend — it’s going to be a busy one, but I think it will be really rewarding. this week’s good things: I don’t have COVID, I get to talk to kids today about taking their future in their hands, I attended an author event last night that was amazing. Let’s get started!…

    Sometimes Things Don’t Work Out…

    As you may know, I tried to do a reading marathon this weekend. Much to my utter determination, it did not pan out as planned. And that’s okay. I really wanted to finish two books this weekend (I had four that I should have finished), but it was just not going to happen. Despite popular belief, compared to some people, I’m actually a slow reader, and I should have known from the start that I wasn’t going to be able to finish everything on my list. And that’s okay. You know what I did instead of finishing three books? I got cocktails with my friends. I spent time with my…

    Catching My Eye | 05.14.21

    I have six — count them: SIX — library books due before the end of the month, and I am determined to read them ALL before they are due. Can I do it? Who knows? Am I going to try my darndest? Oh yes! If anyone has any tips for powering through reading (and enjoying it), my DMs on Instagram are open! This week was insane, just as last week was, but I think I’m getting the hang of this new client and new role I’m taking on it. It’s a challenge, but who doesn’t love a challenge? this week’s good things: I’m still dog-sitting so cuddles have been in abundance, I was…

    Tips for Taking on the Real World After Graduating College

    So, you’re graduating college? Don’t worry. It’s going to be okay. Graduating from college can be one of the best, and scariest, experience of your life. There’s no sugar-coating it — entering the real world is scary. But it’s not impossible. I’ve survived four year — FOUR YEARS — in the “real world,” and while it doesn’t get any less scary, it does, in some ways, get a little bit easier. I know my experience is vastly different from those graduating now — in the midst of a pandemic — but I feel like I still have some advice I can impart. Let’s get started! one | focus on where…

    Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but this week felt like it both took forever and went by way too fast. I’m getting my second dose of the vaccine this afternoon, and then, I’m ready to be cuddled on the couch all Saturday with side effects. I know I definitely need the break, so while I’m not looking forward to being “sick,” I am looking forward to some down time. this week’s good things: I’m celebrating the marriage of some great friends tonight, I got puppy snuggles all week, and I am working really hard to achieve my dreams.
