6 Things We’re Leaving Behind in 2018

You don’t have to be a maker of resolutions to see the potential in a new year. Everyone feels it.

My Favorites: The Bold Type

When someone asks me my favorite show, I kind of freak out. I mean, I do that pretty much any time someone asks me to choose a favorite something, but there are so many shows I watch and enjoy that it’s really hard to narrow it down to just one.

But I think there’s finally a show that’s changed that: The Bold Type. Continue reading “My Favorites: The Bold Type”

Marriage is Weird – but Still Pretty Great

You always hear cautionary tales against getting married at a young age, especially today. In fact, our generation is holding off on marriage later and later with a lot of people choosing not to get married at all. There’s nothing wrong with doing it either way, but Shane and I decided to get married pretty young.

Adult friendships can be hard to maintain. Between crazy work schedules, family functions, and any other extracurricular activities going on, finding time to get together can seem almost impossible. But it’s not. And it doesn’t even have to be difficult. Continue reading “Maintaining Adult Friendships”

This month I had the privilege of interviewing my best friend, Kristin. She’s someone I’ve admired for a long time (we met my junior year of high school and instantly clicked). I’m so glad she agreed to do this post, because, as you’ll read, she’s one busy woman.

Keep reading for her story! Continue reading “Wonder Woman of the Month: Kristin Mathes M.A., MT-BC”
