February Around The Web

This snowy month was full of memories including a trip to Lawrence to recruit for Hallmark Creative interns, lots of Mother’s Day work, a Valentine’s dinner at Avenues, several amazing brunches with friends, a lovely birthday dinner with family at Lidia’s, and after making this list I have realized basically lots of wonderful meals shared with family and friends! I always look forward to February because Valentine’s Day is right before my birthday and it’s definitely a bright spot in my midwest winters. I made lots of discoveries around the web, too! Did you know you can download free high-res prints from Audubon? I think these would be lovely framed! I also learned the State Bird of Missouri is the blue-bird which would definitely match our decor!


January Around The Web

Hello, friends! Normally I can’t believe a month has already gone by when I write these posts but this January felt like two months in one. This month we finished up our mini kitchen renovation, rang in the new year with new KC friends, survived a blizzard and freezing temps, celebrated my friend Alyissa’s birthday and hosted a family birthday part for my grandpa. Work wise was where most of the craziness came in, I started lots of exciting new projects and my friend Meredith and I saw our mural at Ability KC come to life (thanks to lots of Hallmark volunteers)! This month wasn’t a big shopping month as we finished the kitchen, but there was definitely lots of kitchen inspiration on the brain and we made some new recipes, too. Enjoy!

Welcome, 2019!


April Around The Web

Hello, friends! Spring has finally decided to arrive in KC and I'm loving it! This month has been a whirlwind — two of my close friends got married, I traveled to Gulf Shores with our St. Louis friends for one last trip before they all finish school, and this weekend I have a bachelorette party. I'm a little exhausted but it has all been totally worth it, so many happy memories. I've also made a few purchases this month I will share below, but my favorite find was Spencer Charles new script alphabet Sinistral Hand — designed especially for lefties like me!

  • I've also been admiring Nick Matej's work this month, it's wonderful. 
  • Kelly's closet doors have my wheels spinning for some projects at the house. 
  • Ever since watching the documentary about Iris Apfel I love reading articles about her. These photos are awesome too. 
  • I know renovating our bathroom is a looong way off, but I'm saving these ideas.
  • Think.Make.Share. hosted a maker exchange and so many of my talented friends participated! I would love to do this with my friends outside of work too. 
  • Always on the hunt for great clean beauty options
  • This month I won an Instagram give-away from Enjoy! If you live in KC definitely try them out, their green mojito smoothie is my absolute favorite. 
  • I also am testing out Branch Basics multi-purpose cleaner this month and so far so good!
  • One of my friends is getting married later this Summer and I knew this would be the perfect dress for the occasion, can't wait for it to arrive! Congrats Julia, the collection is beautiful!
  • And last but not least, I am headed to New York next week and loved reading about some great places to take pictures in the city.

And I'm off to enjoy the sunshine!
