Because Nobody Says “Follow Your Brain”

It’s not every day that you start a new career- especially not after finding yourself in a consulting role for the largest software company in the world.  Now, I won’t say that I’m hanging up my marketing/consulting hat by any means, but I am certainly exploring a world I always wanted to pursue but didn’tContinue reading “Because Nobody Says “Follow Your Brain””

On Overcoming

“You’re cute, but we don’t do plus size.” The words cut through me and my tepid confidence like a knife. Those words, spoken to me by the waif-ish casting director of a New York modeling agency, confirmed every worst fear I had ever had about myself. As long as I could remember, I was biggerContinue reading “On Overcoming”

Happy Warrior’s Day

I think most of us have heard the quote, “be kind, for you never know what anyone is experiencing or going through”- or some variation on that idea.

The Unbearable Weight of “Should”

When you become a parent, your world view inevitably changes. In some ways, you’re prepared for that. After all, I don’t think there’s a single parent out there who didn’t receive tons of (sometimes unsolicited) advice from family members, friends, strangers in line at the grocery store, etc. But despite all of that advice, andContinue reading “The Unbearable Weight of “Should””

The Day You’ll Never Forget

Our wedding was the most beautiful day of my life. It was one of those days where everything comes together in such a perfect way, that it truly feels like a dream. It went by in such a blur, but every little detail will always be so precious to me. Here are a few shotsContinue reading “The Day You’ll Never Forget”

Still. Life.

Each season is a new beginning. Each football season brings new projects to stay busy. Call it nesting, or call it settling down, but my new focus since getting married has been cultivating the most relaxing home environment possible. There’s something so soothing about looking at a room in disarray, and slowly rearranging and cleaningContinue reading “Still. Life.”

Harborview Sunset

Harborview Park San Mateo, CA April 25, 2017   One of the perks of recruiting season is that while the position coaches are out on the road, Nathaniel and I have lots of long, open evenings to spend together. In an attempt to avoid spending all of those precious hours sitting on the couch watching ourContinue reading “Harborview Sunset”

Engagement Photos

In September, I got engaged to the love of my life. He took me to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in Half Moon Bay on a Wednesday, in the middle of the season. He’d been acting strange all week, and had been pushing to go out that night instead of being homebodies asContinue reading “Engagement Photos”
