    Monthly Mumbles #4

    How about the last Monthly Mumbles post was in March…I have no idea how but 2021 is already more than halfway over and per usual, I am barely keeping up with life! Since it’s been a while and I have been more out and about thanks to being vaccinated, I hope this edition of Monthly Mumbles is more exciting to read! I will share the top highlights from the last few months. 😉 April I went real camping for the first time! It was low-key since we went to Umstead State Park, which is not far from us at all but I am happy I got to cross it off…

    I am so thrilled to share my first blog post talking about money! Having grown up poor, I have somewhat of an unhealthy relationship with money. What has helped me in recent years is talking about money with friends and my sisters, and I have been wanting to bring those conversations onto the blog for quite some time.

With this month’s Mumbles, I tried something different and set it up more like a photo diary—let me know what you think!

    Monthly Mumbles #2

    Hi, friends! After approximately half a year, I am (re-) introducing Monthly Mumbles! I want to share more personal and random things on the blog this year so I plan to write these (hopefully) monthly posts to talk about my favorite things and highlights one each month. We’ll see if I stick with it.

    30 Before 30 Update

    Hi, friends! Almost exactly a year ago, I published 30 Before 30, talking about 30 things I wanted to do before I turn 30. I turned 28 a few months ago and still have a couple of years to tackle this list, but I thought it’d be fun to share a progress update and to see if there’s anything about the list I would change.
