Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

IMG_8080 Craving | Fresh fruit: watermelon, berries, peaches etc. I could live solely off of fruit in the summer months!

Grilling | Our apartment has a shared grill by the pool, but Jordan and I have yet to use it. Purchasing charcoal is on our to-do list!

Listening | Two new albums: Sugar & the Hi-Lows, High Roller; Joy Williams, Venus and Dear Sugar Radio, an advice column-turned-podcast from Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond (I clearly have a podcast addiction!).

Planning | My weeks, with the help of Jordan. The only way Jordan stays on top of his day is by scheduling: workouts, meetings and even leisure activities such as reading or sketching. I might have a rough idea of what I want to accomplish in a day, but I rarely write it down. Last week, Jordan and I sat down and scheduled blogging time, my workouts and lunch dates together!

Decorating | I'm not a continual home sprucer. Once a particular part of our house is decorated, it generally stays that way until we move and have to rearrange, which happens every 1-2 years. The ceilings are really high in our current apartment and we've been trying to find a way to fill the space above our bed since our September move-in.

This past weekend we spotted a canvas sign that we think we can recreate ourselves. I'll keep you posted!
