Now & Then


Happy Monday! It’s been a crazy weekend of rearranging things and trying to recover (spoiler alert: I haven’t). However, today’s post is tons of fun because I was tagged by the lovely Kristyn of Milk & Crown to do a Now & Then feature.

I’m excited to take a part in this feature. Not only because I love 90’s nostalgia but I was blogging for most of the time in my “then” feature so although much has changed, nothing really has changed in terms of my career goals. Let’s share some things!






So as you can see I’m still pretty boring and basically the same in some ways. The picture above is from my 2008 Gravatar so I’ve been blogging for way too long. ย I am responsible for tagging so I tag: Kimberly, Hyemi, and Allyssa. If you’d love to do this yourself, feel free to! It was a fun blast from the past.

  1. loving reading these!! that’s so great that you’ve been blogging for that long and how awesome to see it grow and expand from that time!! i totally forgot about the hills, i LOVED that show! and laguna beach! oh dear hahaha

  2. 2008 seems like centuries ago! I only remember spending three years bouncing from name to name and never settling on a singular idea. I don’t think you’ve changed much over the years but I will say that I have loved watching you grow and become this woman you didn’t know you could be. And I thank you for introducing me to Fefe Dobson!

  3. I love how for attitude, you were determined and now your driven; similar words, but so much more powerful meaning in the latter! Kudos to you!

    p.s. Liking your dreams and life plans! I too wanted to become a doctor, but switched my mind during college when chemistry was so not for me. It’s wonderfully funny how time and the attitude within us seek our true passions. Wishing you a lovely day!

  4. I must say that I absolutely ADORE your 2008 photo. So cute!
    I had very similar life plans, except for the doctor part. Noooooooo. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hey, you’re not boring at all! I think it’s awesome that you’ve kept up blogging for so long – you should be proud of that. I have a feeling that “then” you & “then” me would have gotten along like a house on fire ๐Ÿ™‚
