A Day in the Life: Christmas Eve 2019

Merry Christmas!I can’t believe the day is finally here. It’s crazy how fast this Holiday season went by…well actually every year goes by really fast, but this year felt especially fast. I woke up this morning and realized I still had a bunch of wrapping to do. Christmas Eve is always a fun day filled with family. Today, I thought I would share what my Christmas Eve looks like. The day started off with a lot of cooking, baking, and setting-up. My mom is a perfectionist and has to have everything look a certain way, so it takes a lot of time and effort, but…

Christmas Festivities

The other evening, my family decided to go look at Christmas lights at Filoli House and Garden. Basically, this place is a giant estate that is open to the public and is so nicely decorated and well-kept. There were Christmas lights everywhere…it was magical. They were also serving wine and See’s candy! Yum! Did I mention the hot chocolate was really bomb? Because it was. I thought I would share a few photos of our Christmas light extravaganza to get you all in the festive mood because Christmas is just a few days away! Doesn’t this look so magical? It was so fun seeing all…

A Noble Thanksgiving

Happy late Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am so happy and grateful that I got to spend it at home with my family and I hope everyone got to spend Thanksgiving with their loved ones! Today I wanted to share a little about my Thanksgiving break! Wednesday (Day Before Thanksgiving):  This is one of the most hectic days of the holiday season. Thanksgiving is always at my house and my parents love to go all out (even if it’s just for eight people), so my mom and dad are in the kitchen from morning to night preparing for Thanksgiving day. While…

My Three Favorite Podcasts

I’ve never been a podcast listener until very recently. I felt like everyone was always raving about their favorite podcasts or raving about podcasts that have helped them in life, but I just never understood the appeal. I tried listening to so many different podcasts, but never found any that entertained me enough or that trumped listening to music. I was almost going to give up on podcasts, but happened to come across one that really caught my attention. Ever since, I’ve found more podcasts that I’ve enjoyed and I guess I can officially called an avid podcast listener. Here are my top three podcasts. …

What I Actually Accomplished Before Turning 22

I recently turned 22 years old (November 9) and before my birthday, I set a few goals that I wanted to accomplish. I did this last year before I turned 21 and I thought it was really fun to work towards something in a short amount of time, so I decided to do it again for my 22nd. Let’s see what I accomplished and what I failed to accomplish. Accomplishments:  I held a 3 minute plank: I am in SHOCK that I was able to do this especially because I rarely practiced holding my plank for a month. About a month ago, I started the “Crush…
