  • Boo! I’m back for 13 Days of Halloween!

    Boo! I’m back for 13 Days of Halloween!

    Boo! Honestly, I have no idea where to start because the fact of the matter is I haven’t been here in a long while. But, I’m nothing if not horrified by change, and so dropping this tradition did not feel like an option. Where have I been? Well, that’s a tale, lol. Simply, doing a […]

  • Blogmas Day 12: 3 Major Learnings from 2020

    Blogmas Day 12: 3 Major Learnings from 2020

    Are we sick of talking about 2020? Yes and no, right? I think the reason we’re meme milking 2020 for all it’s worth is because it truly is a shared experience. I’m not going to harp on that too much because I have before, but I keep going back to that thing I read that […]

  • When Your Mind Isn’t Yours

    When Your Mind Isn’t Yours

    Monday was one of those days. Everyone has them. Things were funky from the start. I was having big reactions in response to situations that wouldn’t have phased me at all the day before. I’d worked all weekend and felt burnt out when I sat down at my desk for the eighth consecutive day. At […]

  • Hey, I’m on a podcast!

    Hey, I’m on a podcast!

    Guys, it’s a very exciting Wednesday! My wildly talented friend Alex (@alexalexchaney) is launching his podcast, Happy Unhappy. A little bit about Alex: He’s actually no stranger to the blog. You’ve heard me talk about bands A Story Told and Kids Amen? Yup, that’s his voice you’re hearing. Humble brag for sure, but you know my […]

  • Perspective Isn’t 2020

    Perspective Isn’t 2020

    See what I did there? Because it’s 2020, and perspective is difficult to– never mind. I’ve learned a lot this year, but one reality smacking me in the face daily is how much people seem to disagree on. I’m hoping one page we’re all on is that 2020 has been hard. Regardless of what side […]

  • Hello From Quarantine

    Hello From Quarantine

    Happy Memorial Day, fam! It’s been a while. I hope you’re all doing well during this truly strange time. Long story short, our household is doing okay. We’re all homebodies by nature, so other than wanting to do house projects and being too afraid to go to Home Depot, we’re kind of peachy. Well, as […]

  • 2020: A Lesson In Intentionality

    2020: A Lesson In Intentionality

    Alternative titles include but are not limited to: 2020: WTF? 2020: Let Me Out 2020: Where is 2021, already? Let me just apply a disclaimer to this post… What’s about to follow may imply that I’m cool as a cucumber about what’s going on in the world, and that I’m handling it completely rationally (this […]

  • Blogmas Day 23: 5 Things I Learned in 2019

    Blogmas Day 23: 5 Things I Learned in 2019

    We’re just two days out people, I repeat, just two days out. I’d actually planned to film a funny baking video today (that I’ll save for later), but dang it, editing is hard. That, and I have a killer headache/stomachache combo and am just not feeling it. We’re all about to be inundated with resolutions […]

  • Blogmas Day 21: The Gift of Authenticity

    Blogmas Day 21: The Gift of Authenticity

    Let’s talk authenticity. Authenticity. Real. Genuine. Buzzwords we hear a ton in the age of social media and everything in your face all the time. Being hashtag authentic has taken social platforms and brand marketing by storm and we’ve seen a ton of positivity come from the #real movement, like… The #aeriereal campaign, where we are finally […]

    Blogmas Day 14: Navigating Holiday Stress

    We all love Christmas, right? Wrong. Take some time this year to ask your family, friends, or coworkers how they feel about the holidays, and you might be surprised to find out that many of them are pretty, “Bah, humbug!” It always kind of kills my Christmas spirit a little to hear just how unamused […]
