5 Ways to Make Your Home Feel Like a Fancy Hotel

Last weekend, Jordan and I left the kids and the dog with the grandparents for the first time in two years, and drove down the coast to Malibu. It was glorious. We stayed at a little hotel overlooking the beach, took walks, sipped overpriced smoothies, had dinner at my favorite restaurant, and returned home refreshed. […]

How to Feel Better

If you’ve been feeling distracted, emotional, or anxious lately, I can assure you you’re in good company. The world feels especially heavy right now.

5 Things I Realized I Could Live Without

Over the course of my career, I’ve learned that most people own things just because they were told somewhere along the way that they should own them. Today’s the day I break some great news: you don’t actually have to own anything you don’t want or need! And, if you slow down and question the […]

A Simple Bedroom Makeover

When it comes to furniture layout, my bedroom has been a bit of a puzzle to figure out (so many doors and windows!). After years of sleeping in the corner next to a wall, I woke up one morning and decided it was NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE. I liked feeling cozy in a corner nook, so […]

How to Plan Your Dream Day

One day, many years ago, Jordan surprised me by driving me to the Oakland International Airport. I didn’t realize until he parked what was happening, but it ended up being one of the most delightful days of my life. We flew less than an hour to Los Angeles and spent the next 24 hours doing […]
