Life Lately!

Where did August go?! I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted. Happy September, friends!


Life lately… I’ll tell you what, BUSY is an understatement! Being busy isn’t an excuse for not posting it’s just a fact and to be honest, I have so many notes jotted down throughout all the crazy, busy, awesome moments that have happened and am newly inspired to share so many fun post ideas with all of you! Over the past few weeks, I chose to focus on some other things a little more and you know what, it felt good to disconnect for awhile! {Just wait, a full post is coming on exactly that – disconnecting!}

But now, I’m excited to be back on the blog and bring some new posts your way! To kick-off September {well, the middle of September – ha!}, I thought I’d share a little {tiny!} snapshot of what I’ve been up to and some fun new finds I’ve been wanting to share with you!

{one} I’ve been listening to a ton of podcast episodes lately! It’s hard to choose my favorite but Lewis Howes’ “School of Greatness” podcast has been amazing. {He’s an Ohio guy, too!} I listen to Lewis’ podcast on the way to and from work almost daily. From Larry King to Steve Weatherford to Stacy London, there are so many awesome episodes that are fun, entertaining, and so inspiring no matter what your passion or goal in life is. Check it out today! 

Keep up the amazing work, Lewis!


{two} I’ve been focusing on being present. Did you read my post awhile back about being where you are when you’re there? If not, just click HERE. Well, I took my own advice a little more seriously. The calls, texts, emails, Insta updates, blog posts, etc… those can all just wait sometimes. It’s amazing how fast the weeks fly by and being a little more present and focused on the “now” has really helped my hubby, son, and me feel so connected even during the busiest of days. Sometimes, it’s okay to just live and enjoy the moment. Always worrying about what you “should” be doing can really catch up and make everything life hands you an extra stress. Worry a little less and play a little more. And remember, whatever you are doing, try to be present in that moment! It’s amazing how much better you’ll feel.


{three} I’ve been obsessing over the new fall styles that are out. So many favorites, so many posts to come! But if you are interested in browsing through some of my favorite {affordable!} finds, you can scroll through and shop the photos below.

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

I’m so excited to be back on the blog to bring you some fun reads. Anything in particular you’d like to see? Connect with me and share your thoughts by emailing – I’d love to hear from you!
