Rescue Dogs and PAWS

Each year, I set goals for myself, and one is always to give back. I usually find some small way to do something, but it never feels like enough (for me). 2016 became the year I was finally going to take some action, so I signed up for …

The Everygirl Turns FOUR

Starting over in Chicago is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. It’s where I learned how to be on my own, met people who have changed my life, and launched a website with a fellow Chicago blogger that would change everything. And today, that website turns …

Starting Over

If I’ve learned anything the past few years, it’s that circumstances and expectations do not have to define you. I moved out of my mom’s house a month before my 28th birthday, a fear of flying kept me from traveling for almost 10 years, my grades were underwhelming at best, and …
