About Me

I'm a native San Diegan living in Nashville, and I now say "y'all" more than "you guys." I'm a wannabe modern hippie masquerading as a corporate gal during standard business hours. I spend my days surrounded by people in business casual attire, my nights as an MBA student, and my life as a wife and mom. In my dreams I'm a Broadway musical theatre actress. Past temporary homes include NYC, Los Angeles, Houston, Knoxville, and Memphis -- each with their own stories of life well spent.

My Instagram might as well belong to my daughter. It's hard to post photos of anything other than my own child when nothing else seems to be as precious or funny to me at this stage of life. If you don't like babies, go ahead and skip my Instagram account. I promise I won't be offended.  :)  I like singing, tea, yoga, animals, green bean casserole, CakeWrecks.com, musical theatre, baby's breath flowers (and the actual breath of babies), chai tea lattes, bell kicks, rocking chairs, and Greek salad. My spirit animal is a mix of Sara Bareilles, Joanna Gaines, and a cat.

About the Blog 

I started blogging in 2011 as a way to keep in touch with family and friends when we moved to Houston. It's been a diary that I've poured words into, and I love having this space to document life and share it with others. When I started the blog, I was finding my place in a new city with a new spouse, so everything seemed to be exciting but foreign. Figuring things out meant doing new things that were different, fun, and sometimes uncomfortable. It was all trial by fire. Sapphire is my birthstone, and I have a sapphire wedding ring. And so a blog name was born.

I'm glad you're here, and I hope you'll stay awhile.
