As I said, today it’s a Monday… and this means different things to different people. This specific Monday is especially precious for me because it’s the first day of my very last week of classes… ever. Finals come along next week and then graduation will be happening shortly after. (The countdown is at 16 days now if anyone is following along from my recent blog posts.)
Happy Friday, lovelies! What a week! I’m almost done with classes, next week is our last week, then finals, and I graduate in 20 days! It’s crazy how fast time is flying and just how much there is to be done in so little time.
Happy Fri-yay! I don’t know about all of you, but this week felt sooooo long. This time of year is always crazy packed. Just the other day, my mom pointed out that I graduate in less than a month! (Talk about a reality check.) I’m incredibly excited, even with all the changes that are ahead, but I’m still doing my best to live in the moment and enjoy all the time I do have left in school (26 days!!!).
Speaking of changes, on a seasonal level, I think it’s safe to say that spring has sprung in Chicago! It’s really starting to feel like the warm weather is actually going start sticking around! It’s been pretty rainy around here, but my trusty trench coat has been perfect for the weather. Continue reading →

Happy April! This has already been such a packed month and it’s crazy that we’re only a week in so far. There are some great tunes coming your way on this month’s playlist, so I hope you enjoy all of them! My faves this time around are “The One” and “Our City.” Happy listening!
Happy April Fool’s Day, lovelies! This isn’t a holiday that I usually acknowledge in any way… However, I recently realized just how many “bloopers” I have from the various shoots that I do. So, I thought I’d share some of them with y’all today, given the holiday in the hope that you’ll get a laugh out of some of these. 😉
I’d like to give a special shoutout to my various photographers that deal with me on the reg and put up with my goofiness and funny faces that always come out during shoots. I hope that you all enjoy this collection of pictures of me being a goofball, making funny faces, etc. Continue reading →
This past Friday, I attended my final Chi Omega formal of my college career… That’s just as weird to type as it is to comprehend! As hard as it is to believe, senior year is really starting to come to a close.
Carnation Ball was absolutely incredible and I can honestly say that it was one of the very best formal experiences I’ve had during my time at Loyola. Being surrounded by some of my very best friends, all dressed up and dancing the night away to our favorite songs, made Friday truly the perfect evening.
As I write this, I’m sitting at home in my apartment and wishing that I hadn’t woken up from a nap last night with a high fever… Time to replenish? That would be an understatement today.
Today’s post is a reminder, from me to you (and honestly to myself as well), that we all need to give ourselves a chance to rest from time to time.
“You have permission to rest. You are not responsible for fixing everything that is broken. You do not have to try and make everyone happy. For now, take time for you. It’s time to replenish.” -Unknown
I know that I’m not alone in saying that my life moves pretty darn fast. There’s constantly something happening and any “free time” that I have gets filled just about as quickly as I realize I’ve got it. I’ve heard it from classmates, friends, coworkers, etc. that in this day and age it seems that a lot of us, myself included, have forgotten how and when to slow down. Continue reading →
