Just Keep Swimming

Thursday, March 15, 2012

There's so much going on and I haven't had much time to blog. Ever have so much to do that you don't even know where to begin? That is my life right now and I expect that it will be that way for a while. The only reason this post is getting done is because I'm writing at 1:00 am and should be reading my book. Yes. A real book.

On The Everygirl...
My friend Sarah's Chicago apartment is being featured today
This feature on Amber Venz. That girl is such an inspiration.
Crystal + Taylor were photographed by Andi Hatch this week
Kimberly Genevieve photographed Candace Nelson yesterday

Things I'm loving...
Pansy + as gold as it gets. The perfect pink and a little sparkle.
I video chatted with my BFF + the kids. Got to "meet" sweet baby Harper.
Emails from girls thanking us for starting The Everygirl. These always make us smile.

Wasn't feeling well Mon + Tues. Buddy kept me company while I worked in bed. 

Working on another goal for 2012. I'm reading a book + loving it.  

It's been in the high 70s. The pup is enjoying every moment. Lots of walks + lounging on the balcony.

I went for a run through the city and read on my balcony. Lovely.
Let's not forget that it was in the 30s for a week in MAY last year! This is a miracle.

This happened. 

And also. I miss blogging. 


  1. Totally hear you on the so-much-to-do feelings... and that purse is amazing!

  2. Oh my goodness, The Hunger Games is AMAZING. There were literally times throughout the book when I had to pause for a little bit because everything was getting so intense and I was just getting overly worked up!

    Or maybe I just get too emotionally attached to fictional characters lmao.

    Anyway, I hope everything continues to go well :-)

  3. First of all, you are amazing. Secondly, I want that bag and a patio. The other night I tried to sit on our window ledge until my boyfriend called me an idiot and asked if I was trying to plummet 9 stories to my death. Um..no...I'm trying to enjoy the weather. Duh. Third, blogging misses you too.

  4. So glad you splurged on the bag. It's gorgeous. :)

  5. You have a lot on your plate, dear! I am glad you are reading and doing things for yourself off line, even if they are few and far between at this point. And that bag is divine! So glad you got it. :)

  6. You got the bag! It is so pretty! I have been meaning to sit down and read the hunger games too - hopefully this weekend! Hang in there - you are doing so great with The Everygirl - it is a great site!

  7. Ah you got it! Do you like the way it hold..on your arm and your belongings?

  8. Buddy is so cute! I wish I had a little pal like him. Hasn't this weather been amazing? It's making me so happy and I'm sure Buddy is the happiest of all with it! And that bag-love it so much!

  9. Good thing you scooped that gorgeous bag up because it's sold out online just since you posted about it! :)

  10. Buddy is too cute! I can't handle it. Seriously.

  11. Loving the 'Nemo' reference - the blog and Everygirl are both great - I don't know how you manage to keep up with both. Great work though - really inspiring!

  12. haven't read that book but everyone is raving about it... need to get on the bandwagon!

  13. Oh, you got the bag! How exciting! I'm definitely a little jealous right now! :x

  14. Jealous of that bag and the adorable Buddy love you've got going on :) He's just such a photogenic pup!

  15. I'm right there with you sista!! Starting my own company has seriously consumed my life. As soon as I get some free time, hunger games is on my list!

  16. I cannot express how much I am feeling you on this post :)

    I just took two days off to do my own thing and I finished The Hunger Games. HIGHLY addictive.

    I also posted on the craziness of my life with a similar theme - you just have to keep going. I know you have a million things going on but if you want to commiserate: http://cleanupnicely.blogspot.com/2012/02/2012.html

    Now go enjoy some Katniss... Can't wait until March 23rd - the movie!

  17. Your dog is too cute!! & I'm loving that handbag as much as the pouf it's sitting on!



  18. I wish that bag would have fit into my budget... I fell in love with it after you posted it previously! I've been quite busy as well, so I know how you feel. Love the pictures, and looking forward to the next post. Don't work TOO hard!

  19. Hey Danielle! I know you must be so busy, I can't imagine. But I'm loving the Everygirl, so thank you! And I LOVE that bag. Gorgeous.

  20. Sometimes I feel like I just can't get everything done. Reading? Hardly ever happens. Need. More. Time.



  21. umm, i have the same feeling everyday. i've just given up and do what i can. lists mean nothing when you can't check off anything!

    p.s. loving this weather! even had a little north ave beach time this week. lovely!

  22. I just started the series too--and am also loving it!!
