“Unexpected intrusions of beauty. That’s what life is.” -Saul Bellows, from Herzog

Hi! I’m Natalie. I’m closer to 30 than 20, and am a social media-obsessed PR girl learning to lularoe clothing reviewnavigate the world of careers, health, and general “adulting”. Home is a little townhouse in Portland, OR, where I live with my fiance, Kevin, and three cats – Soxy, Detective Mittens, and Ali (also known as the Fearsome Smaug). I’ve lived in six states in six years and have an ongoing love affair with food, Disney everything, travel, and tea.

This blog is a lifestyle blog of sorts, along with chronicles of my attempts to learn to “adult.” I’m not an “expert” at cooking, photography, or crafting. But I love trying new things and hope to inspire you to do the same. Because every once in awhile, something goes better than expected. Through this blog, I hope to remind myself and others to always notice the little unexpected intrusions of beauty in life, and never stop pursuing adventure.
