About Us


We’re two best friend/roomies who met in the woods and currently live in the city. We both have finally embraced the fact that we are Hufflepuffs, and that’s cool. One time we spent a five hour car trip learning all the words to The Confrontation in Les Miserables.

We share a passion for writing our truths and celebrating the inspirational people around us. We love culture, hope and art. And that is why we created this blog: to celebrate life and you.


sarahFirst and foremost, I’m a huge bibliophile. I also love to write and watch movies. As of late, Parks & Recreation is my life. I am obsessed with pop culture, minus the Kardashians. I can barely keep up with myself. I’m in a love affair with Diet Coke and kittens. Not at the same time. At any time you can find my nose in a book or newspaper. I hope to one-day write (for) both. I recently graduated with a degree in journalism at Winona State University and I can’t wait to explore the infinite abyss.

kaitlynI grew up wanting to be a Disney Princess, Broadway star, and a Hogwarts-certified wizard. Things haven’t changed much. Now I am a high school English teacher, journalist and traveler. I think that people are beautiful and that everyone’s story deserves to be told. I want to tell those stories.

  1. Zooey Deschanel and Mumford and Sons…I’m in love with the page already ;-)

  2. You two are the cutest! I’m in love with you both. Yes to Hogwarts and kittens and Disney Princesses and Diet Coke and everything else you guys mentioned. Glad we found each other–following back! :D

    • Awww, why thank you! You are just the sweetest! Thank you for making our day brighter :)

    • I could not agree more. I haven’t met them, but how I wish I did. Being a Hogwarts certified wizard has been on my bucket list for over 12 years! My obsession with ice cream, kittens and all things colourful never really left me when I grew up.

      On a different note, I share the same thoughts, my blog is my outlet for events, lifestyle and talking about social issues. I hope to make the world a better place with my writing, and I do hope each of my posts somewhere connects with someone. To me, thats a reason worth writing for!

      Keep up the fantastic work! I will be sending you a private message now, with regards to collaborating on a post together – I do hope you’d be interested in doing so.

  3. And yes, you guys are as cute as your blog, which I completely adore! I’m new to WordPress, and I’m glad that I came across your blog while searching through many other blogs, I even showed your pretty blog to my friends! Love.

  16. Why hello there Sarah and Kaitlyn!

    Your blog is one of the warmest and most fun I’ve seen on here. As a Ron Swanson fanatic and Zooey Deschanel adorer, I couldn’t hit that follow button fast enough.

    Plus any about me section that makes me hum “Ghosts” by The Head and the Heart gets a big thumbs-up from me. Can’t wait to follow!

    Much success!

    • Hi, Andrew!

      Thank you so much! Ron Swanson and Zooey Deschanel are the greatest. Did you know Nick Offerman wrote a book that’s coming out in October?! We’re freaking out about it.

      Ahhhh The Head and The Heart <3 This is going to be the start of a great friendship, we think.

      Great to meet ya!

      • The pleasure is all mine!

        I did not know Nick Offerman is writing a book! Although, now I do know what I’ll be doing this October- thanks for giving me a heads-up. I wanted to share a picture on here of my Ron Swanson bobblehead to show you, but to no avail at the moment.

        A great friendship indeed! I’m happy as a clam that I found this blog you’re both running. Hope to keep in touch and can’t wait to read more of your posts!

        I apologize for the insane amount of exclamation points in this comment. I blame too much caffeine.
