3 Ways I Learned How to Make Friends in a New City

3 Ways I Learned How to Make Friends in a New City

When we moved to a new city, I had such conflicting feelings about it. I was so excited to start a fresh new chapter, but I was also nervous – how was I going to make friends in a new city where I knew virtually nobody? It felt like college all over again, without the orientation and its amazing ability to connect you with other people in your exact same position. It felt worse than dating.

How To Buy The Perfect Gift

Did you ever get a gift, and think to yourself, “What the heck were they trying to tell me with THIS gift?” or better yet, have you ever thought to yourself, “They don’t know me at all!” when you open a very generic, perfectly nice present that was meant to be from a good friend?

How to Stop Being a Control Freak

You wouldn’t know it from the title of this blog post, but I have a soft spot in my heart for control freaks. If you would consider yourself a control freak, then there’s likely a reason why – someone saw something in you that was valuable, or you know there’s a better way to do things. I just want you to know – it’s not all bad! I see you out there and I totally get it. If you’re a mama, if you’re a business owner or in some position of authority, or all of the above – you have...

How To Be A Good Friend

How To Be A Good Friend

This month, our blog posts have been all about celebrating women: whether it be for Mother’s Day, a friend in need, or most importantly, yourself - even in your most vulnerable places. As we approach the month of May, you’re bound to see celebrations of women everywhere, lots of pink, and lots of flowers. Being a woman is fun and beautiful for sure, but it’s hard too. It’s easy to get caught up in ourselves or in the people who need our attention the most – and our friendships can suffer for it sometimes. Today, we are talking about how...
