Summer 2022

Corazon playero

Happy Wednesday. It’s been raining this whole week in Houston, so it only seems appropriate to officially close the book on Summer of 2022. And, while fall doesn’t officially start until the end of September, the season feels like it’s already starting to transition. No worries, I won’t be closing the book on Summer just yet – I sense some…

Cabo Bachelorette Party Part I


I’m back from the Cabo Bachelorette party – I got home Monday late afternoon, and I feel like I’ve been playing a bit of catch up since then. The good news: I’m nearly caught up on work emails. The bad news: I’ve still got some work ahead of me. Ya’ll – Cabo was so much fun. If you are new…

Happy 6 years to us!


Today is our 6(!) year anniversary. I can’t believe that six years ago today – that Aaron and I made it official in our glass chapel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It was the most beautiful day, and I relive that memory (the whole day, really) frequently in my head. But friends, what’s really mattered – are the days that have…

An Ode to Running + 30 Minute Meatballs

30 minute meatballs

Happy Wednesday, friends. I mentioned awhile back that I’m trying to incorporate more protein into my meals. I’m not normally a big meat eater, and when I start to up my running, I just feel generally depleted. So, my body has been craving some more protein. I’ve gotten creative with ways to add it in starting with breakfast. You all…

Weekend Edit + Thinking Ahead


Happy Monday, friends. A new week with new possibilities lies ahead, friends. Here in Houston, we are gearing up for one of our hottest months of the year. August is typically hot and humid (which sounds like most of June and July so far). This is one of my favorite weeks of the year because it’s our anniversary week. This…
