Happy New Year!


I can’t believe how 2018 turned out. On July 30, we announced that I would be joining Caroline to expand what Oh So Graceful was at that time. What started as a platform for Caroline’s photography has blossomed into this amazing time capsule of what my best friend and I are doing, creating, enjoying during these times in our lives. And you folks followed along. We can’t believe how much we have grown, and want to continue to hear from you and learn from you in the new year. I just wanted to say, from both of us: thank you, thank you, thank you. We are so overjoyed by the relationships that we have made through this platform, and we can’t wait to do even MORE in the coming year!

Every year I feel as though I set unrealistic goals for myself for the new year, so I wanted to relieve some of that pressure this year. I made a list of things that I would like to accomplish, that I think could apply to anyone.

  • Learn ONE new skill every month.

  • Read at least one book a month. (Sometimes I slip on this!)

  • Trust my instincts.

  • Learn to truly forgive.

  • Choose healthier snacks.

  • Plan activities for all of my days off.

  • Don’t get down on myself if I choose to stay home and relax instead.

  • Get to know my neighbors.

  • Create more content for this blog.

  • Create more just for me.

  • Go on a spending freeze.

  • Take more road trips with Walter & Gus.

  • Have one date a week. (We used to do this, but when the weather got colder we started staying in more. I think it’s important to force yourself out of the house when it’s cold and grey!)

  • Try things that scare me.

  • Be the best friend I can possibly be.

2018 was a tough year, but there was still a TON to be thankful for. Cheers to all of you babes who have made Oh So Graceful possible. Here’s to 2019 being our best year yet!
