Monthly Memo: November

Monthly Memo: November

Hello Friends!  I can not believe it’s almost Thanksgiving already!  This November went by way quicker than I wanted it to.  Work has been crazy and will only get crazier until the end of the year (gotta love all those holiday parties!), and I just finished my writing class, which I loved!  The creative non-fiction class was through Gotham Writers, which is a writing school based in New York that also offers classes online.  Obviously, I went the online route, which…

Monthly Memo: October

Monthly Memo: October

Hello from Toronto!  Actually, by the time this posts, Mike and I will be near Niagara Falls, hopefully on a boat.  I can’t believe this year is almost over, it seems like each month, especially October, is just rushing by. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that my friends and I threw a fundraiser at Bang Bang Pie and Biscuits here in Chicago earlier this month.  We screened short films by amazing female directors, had some…

Monthly Memo: September

Monthly Memo: September

Hooray, it’s finally Fall!  Though you wouldn’t know it with this 80+ degree weather we’re having in Chicago this past week.  We actually just had the hottest September 22 in recorded history.  Lucky us!  It’s been a hectic month so far, with work, family plans, weddings and other commitments.  We started the month at my cousin’s wedding back in my hometown, which was so much fun.  I was also just at a bachelorette party the other night for my friend…

Monthly Memo: August

Monthly Memo: August

Hello friends! Happy August!  Man, this month is juts flying by.  With work being so busy and our hectic schedule of weddings this year, I feel like I haven’t been able to slow down and enjoy the summer at all this year.  Which is fine, but I still have so much left on my Summer Bucket List that I want to accomplish! Like: Taking a trip out to the Warren Dunes in Michigan Going to the Logan Square Farmer’s Market…

Monthly Memo: July

Monthly Memo: July

How in the world is it already July?!  These past couple of months have made up the summer of getting shit done (so far). I told Mike that as soon as we moved, which happened at the beginning of June, I was going to get down to business (to defeat the Huns 🎶 – Mulan!!). I wanted to get back on the ball with this blog and with getting back in shape and with just taking care of myself in general….

Monthly Memo: May

Monthly Memo: May

Hello, Hello Strangers! Long time no talk.  I believe I owe some sort of an explanation for that.  Things have been a little hectic lately, especially this beautiful, rainy month of May, because of a few separate factors.  It seems as though things have been snowballing a bit, but we’ll be out of the woods soon I think.  We’re moving in a couple weeks; not too far away but it’s still a hassle as I’m sure most of you know….

Monthly Memo: March

Monthly Memo: March

Hi All! Happy March! Life has been a little hectic lately.  I recently started a new job, which I love, but resulted in working longer hours.  It’s been mostly fine, but I’m definitely still adjusting to the new schedule.  As you may have noticed, my writing has fallen behind a bit.  But, I’m positive that things will be getting back on track soon!  Contributing to the chaos, I’ve started a new, additional, blog focused on female empowerment with my friend…

Monthly Memo: January

Monthly Memo: January

Happy Sunday! Things have finally started to slow down from the holidays, which I am so grateful for.  Life has been really hectic lately, so I’m happy to have a chance to relax and catch up on some things.  Today in particular is shaping up to be a treat yo self day (I know I am way behind on this, but I have been binge-ing Parks and Recreation lately and I am obsessed).  I plan on: Reorganizing my closet Doing…
