Hi.

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

Currently / / September

Was August a long month for anyone else? Phoenix started school. I went to Gatlinburg with my wine club. Adult friend getaways are so satisfying. Organized grocery lists! Payments on-time! Early bedtimes! haha Jordan had a few big projects launch and we joined a gym! Jordan and I both felt the need to workout regularly (hello, early thirties), but we weren't quite sure how to fit it in. This gym is literally three minutes from our house, which makes it really convenient for an early morning run. 

On top of everything else, our car was stolen a little over a week ago! I'll share more once it's all settled, but just when we could have used a relaxing long weekend Phoenix catches Hand/Foot/Mouth (and we found a nail in our tire). He was miserable over the weekend and honestly, so were Jordan and I. But, my birthday (and Jordan's!) is on Friday so I'm calling for a do-over!  


starting | To organize our important paper work/documents. The thing with owning your own business (and by own I mean Jordan) is there's usually not time to accomplish administrative stuff. We have a lot of random paperwork in our house and the thought of it crammed in our filing cabinets was starting to stress me out. I'm taking moments here and there to purge and figure out a better system all together. 


buying | I had Everlane credit, so I ordered the black version of the wide leg crop pants I own in tan and their cheeky straight jean. I had tried a pair of their jeans last year and they did not work out at all, but I love the way the cheeky straights fit. I sized down because from experience I find their pants run large. The jeans are $68, which is a great deal for ethical pants! 

sharing | A car! It's like old times. Jordan and I shared a car for the first couple years of our marriage. 

reading | I'm still devouring The Outlander series. I recently finished book three. I also finished Call Me By Your Name last week and started The Luminaries.  

recording | Phoenix saying his name!! We finally got him to say his name. You want to know what he calls himself? Pheenie. Or Feeny. ;-)
