You are gonna turn out fine.

I was recently listening to Andy Grammer's song, "Keep Your Head Up" and I thought, oh my goodness this song is literally my life right now. It's nice when there is a song out there that perfectly describes how you're feeling. #Relatable as my sister would say. I've been waiting on the sunset Bills on... Continue Reading →


A Love Note

Nicolle, You are trying so hard to live a perfect life. You have been striving to protect yourself from things that you cannot protect yourself from. You are grasping at straws in the here and now. You're trying desperately to hang on to what you think you know because you're afraid of everything you don't... Continue Reading →

The Awkward Moments

I am back! A few things you should know about me. I am probably the most awkward person in the world. That's how it feels most of the time anyway. Although, I suppose that's a common characteristic among introverts. I never feel quite in the right place unless it's at home in my own space.... Continue Reading →

But, I am thankful for friends like Rebecca (shout out!) who seem to know when I am drowning without me even telling them. She texted me Sunday night after I... Continue Reading →

I am never not tired and I always look forward to my "introverting" moments when I can be alone in the apartment to process everything. But I honestly cannot... Continue Reading →

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

I have decided to title this post after Lorelai Gilmore's famous line, "Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!" Because I find myself saying this a lot more lately. Moving, living in a city, taking Grad School classes, working in a new's exhausting y'all! I am so thankful that there is good coffee out there to give my brain... Continue Reading →

They say it's best to have a focus when you're blogging. Something you're an expert on or passionate about. Honestly, I haven't quite figured... Continue Reading →
