Taylor Swift at Soldier Field

After Taylor Swift’s big night at MTV’s Video Music Awards last night, I can’t help but be reminded of the amazing night I spent with Taylor and 40,000 of her friends in Soldier Field a little over a month ago.   It was a night filled with Taylor’s signature two-piece ensembles and all of her hits […]

Finding the Courage

As a 25 year old, I don’t claim to have all of the answers to life’s biggest questions or even the right advice for life’s smallest problems. But in my 25 years, predominately in the last 5-7, I have gathered a lot of experiences that have set me up to make some big changes in […]

Bling Obsession

     Diamonds are a girls best friend is an accurate representation of my relationship with sparkly jewelry. There’s no easier way to dress up a plain t-shirt and jeans than with an über-sparkly necklace. All of my favorites in the photo above are from J.Crew or J.Crew Factory. I love adding a bit of sparkle […]

This particular course required some honest self-reflection, difficult conversations, and letting your guard down in front of numerous […]

Learning to Love to Run

Who knew that something I used to do so willingly as a child and teenager would pose such a struggle now. Barely 10 years after running miles in any given day during soccer practice, games, or tournament, I’m teaching myself how to run again. I say “teaching” but it really is like re-learning how to […]

Summer Concert Series

In Wisconsin, my favorite time of the year is, for more than just the obvious temperate reasons, Summer. Besides Spring, Wisconsin truly comes alive in the Summer. Before I get too far into this diatribe on why Summer is obviously the best time of year anywhere, Winters in Wisconsin are great too. But Summer…that’s the […]

The Perks of Being an Aunt

I remember it like it was yesterday. Silently sitting in the computer lab at Grainger School of Business at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Working on Business Stats homework on a Thursday afternoon, trying to get ahead before the weekend. Though I always tried to get as much done before Friday rolled around, this weekend […]
