The Year of Content Week 1

The Year of Content Week 1

Friends! Happy 2015. I know we’re about a week into January already but I feel like I haven’t done a proper introduction to the new year. If you’re the kind of person who isn’t into goals, resolutions, making changes or reading about other people who get pumped up about the above mentioned, this post won’t […]

Friends, join me for a little recap of the most jam packed year of my life would ya? Here we go :) In January, I took a trip down to Atlanta to attend a styling and floral workshop hosted by the one and only Joy Thigpen. Not only was I able to spend a few […]

Stop the Scroll

If you’re reading this I suggest you block off the next ten minutes to soak it all in! Last summer, inspired by my good friend Nancy Ray’s Contentment Challenge, I decide to give up something I believe we all spend way too much time with. Social media. After feeling a bit weighed down by the […]

Making Things Happen Recap Fall 2014

This. This. This. A week ago today, I had the privilege and absolute honor of attending the Making Things Happen intensive as a speaker for the third time. Two years ago this month I sat in a small conference room in a Chicago area hotel where I first did some serious soul searching into what […]

On Growing Older and Getting Better

On Growing Older and Getting Better

Hi guys! I’ve missed you. I hope you didn’t think I forgot about you. Because truth is I didn’t. Funny enough when I made my list of New Year’s Resolutions last month not one of them included to blog more. I certainly didn’t plan on blogging less, which is how things have seemingly unfolded, but […]

Au Revoir 2013

2013. You were lovely. Truly. I loved you so much. See? You were the first full year I was able to get used to the new HGE brand. To truly define what the HGE experience is all about. To fall in love with every ounce of my career and business. And that I sure did. […]

My Story Part IV

My Story Part IV

Going away on our honeymoon as mentioned in Part III really gave me some time to find personal clarity and direction. Back home I had a full time coaching job I knew I had to follow through with until the middle of December, but other than my responsibilities there I was a free woman. I […]

My Story Part III

My Story Part III

Over the summer mentioned in Part II I had to decide what to do next. After only three months in Chicago with Andrew who was my fiance at this point, and unable to find a job in my field, I found myself back in my parent’s basement. I hadn’t been there since high school and had […]

My Story Part II

Like I mentioned in Part I of My Story as soon as I got hooked on blogging in February of 2009, I did everything I could to grow, learn, network and essentially make the most out of this little online endeavor I had discovered. When you start out with a first time blog, it’s literally […]

My Story Part I

My Story Part I

Next month will mark my four year blogging anniversary. I can hardly believe it’s been that long. And definitely find it hard to comprehend how much I’ve learned – and changed – since my first post went live in 2009. When Andrew and I both moved to Chicago in early January of that same year, […]

Au Revoir 2012

2012. Where do I even start with you? Just the other day I was telling a close friend that 2011 was simply put just a really happy year. You can read my recap from last December over here to see for yourself. But despite all of the happiness, new beginnings and fabulous trips, I felt […]
