Contemporvant Growtivation.

September 24, 2014

We’re halfway through the week already, crazy! I’m kind of counting today as my Friday though, because tomorrow I leave for The Influence Conference in Indianapolis until Sunday!!!! (Yep, heading back to Indy, haha.) I’m SO excited. This is my very first blogger conference so I don’t really have any expectations other than meeting a lot of fabulous women, getting lots of great ideas for future posts, and everything and anything God wants me to hear and see – cannot…

Little Miss Sunshine

June 14, 2014

Last week I received the Sunshine Award from not one, but four other bloggers. UMMM, talk about making a gal’s week!! Thank you to Amanda Nicole, Kacie, Meagan and Anne for nominating me!!!  Being the rule-breaker that I am with these things, I’ve decided to take questions from each of you and let you all in on things that you may or may not be dying to know. At the end of this post, I’ve passed the Sunshine Award to one (of many!)…

Exciting News!

June 3, 2014

Well good morning! (Or afternoon, depending on where you are.) I did not have this post ready yesterday but had a very good reason for not writing and spending the entire day with this one guy I know šŸ˜‰  We had the best anniversary day/date/celebration. We both decided, while at dinner, that it was the best anniversary date so far (and that includes last year when we were in Maui)… it was that good. We took our time at dinner,…

Happy Friday, everybody! What’s on everyone’s agenda for the weekend? I’ll be finishing up a new DIY – I can’t wait to share this one with you all next week!

What’s your go-to method for the social media madness?

April 4, 2014

First and foremost – Happy Friday! Is it just me or was this week crazy busy and move at a snail’s pace? I know, usually busy weeks go super fast but I am pretty happy this week is now over and we have made it to the weekend.  You may have noticed a few (small) changes here at Ember Grey in the past week or so. I now have a  Facebook page, and also linked up my Pinterest account –…

CreativeMornings Chicago: You are beautiful

March 22, 2014

What an inspiring morning I had yesterday! This was my second time attending CreativeMornings Chicago and it most definitely went down in the books for being one of the best, most inspiring “lectures” I’ve ever heard. (source. Illustration by Jesse LeDoux) The theme for this month was “Hidden” and the speaker was Matthew Hoffman, Chicago-based creative genius (no, that’s not on his business cards but if I were making his business cards that’s what it would say) and founder of…

I’m talkin’ Kindles, Maui, and Conferences. (Please try and keep up)

March 18, 2014

When I first started this public blog, one thing was for certain (among many) – I would, at some point, attend a bloggers conference. It was really important to me to network and truly get to know other bloggers, but also to learn as much as I could about blogging – because really, this is such a weird thing we do, yes? Surely a conference would give me both networking opportunities and some great blogging tips… perhaps some encouragement I…

CreativeMornings Chicago

March 1, 2014

I had a fabulous day yesterday, I must say. Besides having to wake up at the crack of dawn (read: it was only 6am but after weeks of sleeping in, it sure felt like the crack of dawn), it was nice to take the train into the city again for CreativeMornings Chicago. CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Amazingly, there are now 71 cities around the world hosting CreativeMorning and I would highly encourage you to…

It was a slammin’ Presidents’ Day (& some other thoughts)

February 18, 2014

I had the very best Presidents’ Day, guys. And I mean, isn’t that all anyone asks for? The morning was spent with X and one of my dearest, oldest (he’s not old though) friends and his girlfriend. They were in town from San Francisco (why they chose to leave their paradise and come to this snowy mess makes no sense to me but it doesn’t matter because selfishly, I was so happy to see him- even if they were freezing…

Liebster Award?! I’d like to thank my stylist, and my trainer and-

February 5, 2014

Oh, hello! This is a post that is NOT about my birthday, are you shocked?! (Just wait though, I’ll be posting a birthday recap later tonight.) This has seriously been the longest birthday celebration of my life. X asked me this morning if I’d like to keep celebrating and I told him no. Please, no. I don’t even know what day it is anymore. (It’s Wednesday.) (WARNING. THIS IS THE LONGEST POST YOU’LL EVER READ EVER.) I was nominated!! For…
