Sweet Marie

You know gets me disappointed? Discovering a new band AFTER they broke up. Well THAT’S a positive way to start off a blog post. I’ve been listening my way through The Walters only to find out they sadly broke up last year. Still listening on repeat though.

With the beginning of every new season comes a period of introspection and this coming fall has been nothing different—especially with our move. Yes! Did you know that we’re moving? I announced it on Instagram, but realized I never announced it here. I have a Stories highlight on Instagram going into the nitty gritty of it all, but basically my family and I are selling our house and are moving to either Oakland or Alameda. We’re renting for a year while we decide exactly what we want to do after that. With my mom and I co-running a small business and being best friends, I’d love to stay close to my family. We’re thinking about finding a multi-family house, getting two units in an apartment, a house with an au pair dwelling unit, etc. It’s coincidental that as we approach a new equinox season, we’re also entering into a new season of our lives.

I know this outfit isn’t too fancy schmancycakes, but I’m just feeling the creative itch and wanted to post something. With selling our house and moving, my personal life is pretty overwhelming right now and it’s a delicate balancing act finishing up my graphic design degree online at SCAD, running this blog, running my own business, and keeping my personal life in order. As much as these endeavors fill up my plate, they also paradoxically help keep me sane. As impossibly full as my schedule is right now, I’m also insanely inspired. I’ve made intentions to glow up my outfits, workout routine, and skincare and makeup routines. I’ve been in a rut, maybe this move is shaking things up in just the way I need.
