What started as a book blog in 2019 has now morphed into an Instagram community built around those small, simple moments in life. My work is meant to capture the details of life and travel, like a half-drank cup of coffee at a cafe, a flock of birds at the beach, or reading the last few pages of a good book at sunset.

Whether I'm telling this story through photography, video, or Patreon write-ups, I focus on the truth and authenticity of my experiences at home and on the go.

Highlights

This tiny bathroom is now solidly my favorite room in the house. I could spend every evening soaking in our new tub, drinking a glass of wine, and reading. Speaking of reading, I definitely slept on this series and I’m now paying the price by binge reading them all. Folks, have we finally broken the Reese’s Book Club curse?

Who would you like to toast tonight on Burn’s Night? Tag them in the comments! This year, I’m raising a glass to each and every one of you on this wonderful Burns Night! Burns Night honors Scotland's bard, Robert Burns, who published hundreds of poems throughout his lifetime. On Burns Night folks gather to dine, drink, and toast to friends, family, and, of course, the poet himself. This Burns Night, I've teamed up with @bruichladdich to make a classic Bobby Burns cocktail using my favorite scotch whisky, The Classic Laddie. This cocktail is so easy to make and is the perfect introduction to this wonderful Scottish holiday. To make a Bobby Burns Cocktail: - In a mixing glass with ice add 2 oz of Bruichladdich’s The Classic Laddie Scotch, 1 oz sweet vermouth, and <1 oz French herbal liqueur. - Stir with the ice until cold -Pour in a coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist. You can purchase your own bottle of Bruichladdich’s The Classic Laddie Scotch via the link in my bio! #scotchlover #bruichladdichpartner #bruichladdichdistillery #scotchwhisky #ClassicLaddie #ad #MSGfor21+ #burnsnight #robertburns

Just me hoping this rainy window will be filled with snow here soon, while simultaneously hoping I can make it home before it is

Steamy pour for your Sunday morning, while I’m out wandering around the happiest place on earth.

It's incredible how much joy a new and freshly painted front door can bring. Can't wait to utilize this green in more places throughout our home.

Second book of the year and, oof, this one got me. I love gothic novels, especially Southern Gothics, and House of Cotton is an incredible new entry in the genre. It’s raw and emotive with some truly sickening body horror. However, the thing I loved the most about this one was its harshness. Brashears holds nothing back in this story, yet, Magnolia, the main character, is one of the gentlest, kindest souls in literature. This one’s a kick in the gut, but absolutely worth the read. There’s so much to think about and I cannot wait for it to be out and available for all of you to read. Please check the content warnings on this one before you read! I knew what I was getting into, and want to make sure you all do as well.

It’s finally Saturday morning and we’re headed into a long weekend. I’m dragging myself through the last 50 pages of a sequel that ended up being rather disappointing, though I’m giving it a chance to redeem itself at the end. Besides that, I’m planning on finally watching The Pale Blue Eye, which is the new Poe biopic. I absolutely cannot wait. Do you all have any plans for the weekend?

Quiet little moments with delicate little things from my collection 💌

It’s Friday morning at 9am and I’m already on to my second cup. Honestly y’all, it’s been a shit week. I’ve had some really stressful things come up at work and some not so great interactions with a few people (misogyny in the workplace is still very real y’all). It’s been disheartening and frustrating, so I’m crawling towards the weekend and the chance to decompress.

New dining chairs are here and they’re absolutely iconic. I never thought I would find an (affordable) dining chair that so perfectly matched my aesthetic, but then I stumbled upon these from @anthroliving. Quickest add to cart ever.

First loaf of the year is good luck, right? I’m choosing to believe so, because this one came out almost perfectly. This was a test run for a new recipe I’m working on. I have a couple changes I want to make to the spice ratio just to bring some of the flavor forward a bit, but beyond that, this one’s going down as a favorite in our household.

Well the stroke of midnight has happened and it's finally time to call close to my 2022 reading year. I based my reading goal on last year and found out quickly that I was much busier than years past. While I met my pages goal for the year, I was a bit behind on my total number of books, which is completely fine.⁠ ⁠ Here are some of the 2022 highlights:⁠ ⁠ – This year felt like the year of sequels for me with 4 of my favorite series coming to a close and 5 others leaving me with new cliff-hangers.⁠ ⁠ – I visited some of the previous years' best sellers–mostly Reese's YA book club pick, which I've come to accept that I just don't like.⁠ ⁠ – I finally dove into the world of Stephen Graham Jones and I AM HERE FOR IT. Superfan forever now.⁠ ⁠ – I read way more historical fiction than I usually do. It's a genre I typically avoid, but I found a couple of the books made their way to my end-of-the-year favorites.⁠ ⁠ – Lastly, several of my favorite authors released new books this year with various degrees of success, but I will say, the one's I loved, I loved.⁠ ⁠ How did your year wrap up? Do we share anything in common? Let me know in the comments!
