It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts! The past couple months have flown by and I’ve been working on a lot of exciting projects both on here and in my professional life. I’m excited to unveil them in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, let’s catch up!
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my Music Monday posts on IG Stories that I’ve been doing. Every Monday, I share some of my favorite songs, and I also have a playlist full of them, so feel free to follow along if you want.
As far as podcasts go, I’m addicted to Heaven’s Gate. It’s hosted by my favorite radio host, Glynn Washington (he also does Snap Judgment) and it’s about the Heaven’s Gate cult that ended in mass suicide. It’s so interesting, and Glynn also talks a lot about his own background growing up in a cult.
I just finished up Daring Greatly by Brené Brown this past weekend and I loved it so much. I’m definitely going to be grabbing her other books soon. I’m also listening to The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah on audiobook and I really like it so far, even though I just barely started it. It’s a WWII historical fiction and I’ve heard lots of good things about it, so I’ll keep you updated.
I’ve taken two trips to Zion National Park in the past month to work on a project, and both times were super fun and beautiful. You can never have enough Zion in your life. On the second trip, I did a lot of adventurous things (like four-wheeling) that I wouldn’t normally do, so that was exciting and scary.
For #OptOutside on Black Friday, my friend Ana and I went on a little hike to a waterfall and also participated in Impact Friday by cleaning up trash on the trail. The whole thing felt good and fulfilling in more ways than one!

Latest TV Binge:
This past weekend was spent catching up on This Is Us because I fell way behind. It’s seriously such a good show. I also noticed that there’s a new season of Catfish (my guilty pleasure) up on Hulu so you know what I’ll be watching next.
Latest Food Obsession:
I actually don’t know if I have one right now! I’ve been trying to eat healthier so I’ve been making lots of smoothies and fall meals. I will say I’m very addicted to these Rebbl elixirs – the Maca Mocha one and the Dark Chocolate Protein shake are the bomb. Also, so excited for holiday treats and to make my annual buche de Noël.
I didn’t do a ton of Black Friday shopping, but I did need a new ski coat to hit the slopes this year so I got this Columbia one on sale. I grabbed another Amazon Echo Dot too because I’m obsessed with ours and I want one in our bedroom so I can do some meditations with it.
