Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm a 20-something home school graduate, runner, writer, and stylist and I love sharing my adventures in cooking, working, exercising, creating a home for me and my two kitties and my attempt to balance it all! The antiquated home schooling movement of the 1990's did not prepare me for how hard this is! Thus, this is my attempt at modern homemaking.

This is my favorite warm-weather dress! I usually don't go for shift dresses because I've always felt they make me look boxy, but this one hangs in all the right places and is the perfect, soft jersey material. It was perfect for a day of sightseeing around Chicago with my family (followed by the most amazing Wisconsin ice cream!).

The weather in the midwest has been so bipolar this year! These photos were taken right after I got back from Arizona. It was 80 degrees that day, followed by weeks of winter weather again! Wednesday and Thursday of last week was sunny and 80-85 degrees, then Friday was 45 degrees and rainy! I just want a week of nice, sunny shorts weather. (Is that too much to ask for in May?) Until then I'll just be dreaming of the palm trees and sunshine of Cali and Arizona... β€
