Late Night Notes // Life of a Night Owl

This post was started many weeks ago and has been a work in progress since. 

Maybe it’s because I’ve gotten more sleep in the last few days then I have in the last few weeks. Maybe it’s because I’ve just discovered some great Instagram feeds that have me all inspired and feeling creative.

So much planning and big picture work mixed with details and nitty gritty. It has been a continuous lesson in Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 9/16/16”

Is Travel Worth It?

My most recent long weekend trips to New York City have come at times when I needed them more then I realized. My eyes were opened to see that maybe I was beginning to approach travel not as a joy, but as a job. Also, being at a point of feeling slightly discouraged and a little aimless, I was so vividly reminded of what I want to pursue and what my work is for. Continue reading “Is Travel Worth It?”
