Muse Monday Vol. 16

It’s official- the busiest month of my life is almost over. I can smell the finish line, guys


This weekend I had the honor of standing up next to my best friend as she married the love of her life in Cleveland. After putting my blood, sweat, and tears into the DeVore wedding, it was so bittersweet to finally see it before my eyes.

The wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful, and the reception was more fun than any wedding you’ve been to (I promise). And while it’s a big bummer that the weekend is officially over and we’re all back to our lives, I’m so excited to see what the first year of marriage holds for the DeVore’s. Congratulations, Ally and Kevin- I love you guys.


Although my gift to the bride were personally designed invitations and being her own personal wedding planner whenever she needed me, the maid of honor and I still wanted to get her a little something for the big day.

Studies have shown that the side effects of gratitude are plentiful. I’ve been looking into a gratitude journal myself, and came across 52 List Project for Happiness at Anthropologie while looking for a card. Sprouted from the original 52 List Project, this journal takes just a little bit of time once a week and asks you to reflect on a gamut of different things. And what better way to document your first year of marriage than writing down all of the things that make you happy and your life full.

You definitely don’t need a fancy book to start a gratitude journal, it’s as easy as a notebook from the store. Here’s a few other options.

This is probably one of my favorite articles I’ve read in a long time: 3 older women spreading a little wisdom on aging.  “As long as you have enough money to pay your rent and buy food, don’t worry about anything.” Well, I think I’m doing good then, guys.
