I feel like I am sneaking in on conversations that don’t pertain to me but getting really good cliff notes for an upcoming test.

A Strategy for Anxiety

I sometimes struggle with anxiety. I can feel like everything is a priority 1 and it can keep me up at night. Recently a therapist friend told me something helpful to do before bed if you are feeling anxious. She said close your eyes. Now take everything you are thinking about and worried about and put it into a container.…

Shop Local – Talulah Jones

Shelby here, with love for a wonderful local business – Talulah Jones – on 17th and Park Avenue in Uptown. The minute you walk into this shop you feel at home.  The women who run it are friendly and helpful and there is often a little shop dog chilling in a cozy corner.  The interior design also makes it feel…
