HI, I’M KAITLYN

OVER too many years & ITERATIONS to COUNT, this blog has ALWAYS BEEN A PLACE FOR SHARING WHAT BRINGS STRENGTH & JOY.

Writing for others for so long has found a way of reminding me how important it is to write & create for myself, too.

So even when I’m not getting paid to do it, you’ll find me…writing & creating…right here. Beyond my affinity for words, I’m a believer, a wife, an East Coast native, a wine enthusiast, and all-around lover of good design & aesthetics.

From clothes to home goods, you'll find a mix of high-low style - aka what's affordable & realistic vs. quality pieces I've worked & saved up for. And ya know...one of these days I'll manage to have the 'perfect' capsule wardrobe. I mean, that's part of what this blog is for!

FRONT ROW SEAT

"THE DAY YOU PLANT THE SEED IS NOT THE DAY YOU EAT THE FRUIT."

One of my first blogs was called Simply Complicated. Unwaveringly, that dichotomy still exists within this space. It’s for those who want to be & do all the things, yet long for a life Erin Loechner so ironically describes as Chasing Slow. It’s for those that feel overrun, hurriedly completing tasks and to-dos, yet find themselves still debating that daydream. It's a space for pursuing our dreams with eyes wide open.

DAILY 

routine

Accomplished days in my home office & making things happen with my team, followed by pouring a glass, catching up with my husband, reading, or tuning in to my latest Netflix addiction

What I'm 

learning

Tennis - and it's been such a great thing for my mental & physical health. I've missed playing competitive sports since my days of being a Division 1 field hockey athlete.

What I'm 

not about

Giving in to comparison, being jealous of others, or refusing to get help in tougher seasons of life. Although I'm an introvert, I've learned how important it is to let others know what you're going through.

what I

believe

Your perspective can either be your prison or your passport. It's one of the most expensive things we can own so I'm always working at improving mine and having agency over my life.

If you're into mostly neutrals, capsule style, endless home decor, clean beauty, wine & great cocktails, deepening your faith & probably way too many videos of our mini goldendoodle, you'll love it here!
