Happy New Year!
Favorite Moments in 2022
Goodbye 2022, hello 2023!
What I Read in 2022
This year I am proud that I have read more than one book! Being in grad school, focusing on content creation for my blog and IG, working full-time, etc I did not prioritize my reading time like I used to. I finished up 2022 reading nine books of all different genres from personal finance to fictional summer reading.
Small Ways You Can Pay It Forward This Holiday Season
I feel like it goes without saying but kindness really does go a long way. We have the ability to change the course of someone’s day by just doing one simple act. This holiday (but really every day) challenge yourself to brighten someone’s day whether it is a stranger, coworker, or family member. Small acts can be the most meaningful gifts.
I can’t believe Christmas is already one week away! Here are some holiday cocktails that are easy and different to try with friends and family. I have my eye on the recipe for the Nooku Bulldog cocktail. Cheers!
Books to Gift This Holiday
I am a huge fan of gifting books for the holiday. They are a great way to provide a resource for a friend or family depending on the genre, or it can be a fun read that they can enjoy!

The Best & Easiest Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
All I have to say is that I am obsessed with these cookies and you will be too! I discovered this recipe on the back of the Kirkland Signature (Costco’s brand) chocolate chips over a year ago (which I beleive they discontinued), but I saved the recipe and it has been my go-to ever since.
