2017 goals in review

At the beginning of the year, I gave myself a couple of goals. Nothing too specific, but just a few things I wanted to get a little better at during 2017. While I can't say that I stayed on top of these goals for the entire year, I'm fairly certain that I did improve overall, so hey, not too bad!

thoughtful christmas gifts (that won't turn into eventual clutter)

If I've learned anything since moving into our itty bitty apartment and getting rid of a lot of stuff, it's that less is more. During the holidays, I usually abandon that mentality because duh, it's the holidays. I want to buy everyone (and myself...) all the little gift sets and random knick knacks...but I am so susceptible to buying things just for the sake of buying them. It's so easy to do, isn't it? Lately, I've been trying to be extra thoughtful about bringing new things into the apartment, just because we spent so much time donating and selling a lot of our extra items. While I'm all about giving and receiving stuff like a cozy new sweater, cutesy mug, or a fancy new gadget of sorts, I am also down for the kinds of gifts that don't take up a lot of space.

So with that, I give to you: a mini (thoughtful) gift guide for the person with an itty bitty living space...or just a person. You know what I mean...right?

life update | goodbye to my worst semester of graduate school.


I am officially done with my most difficult semester in graduate school and gooooood lawd did that one put me through the ringer. I won't bore you with all the details, but long story short, I am thrilled to be taking a month off from school (certainly not work...I'm scheduled six days next week - YIKES!).
