Many have asked me to start blogging again in the midst of our transition so I thought I'd start out by giving a brief life update. For those of you who don't know, Ricky and I are in the process of relocating to Romania. We have been given an opportunity to partner with an orphan care organization, which will give us the ability to continue developing Radiant Hope with the hands-on experience that we will gain. We have learned to be very open-minded and open-handed with our dreams and passions. We don't yet know what our day-to-day is going to look like nor do we know exactly how long we will be there, but we do know with great confidence that this is our next step! Not only will I get to love on the kids that are so near and dear to my heart, but this will give us the flexibility we need to spend more time in Mumbai as we continue to develop our network there. 

We left NYC last week and are spending the summer on the road. We're mainly taking this time to see family and friends, fundraise, and get our ducks in a row before we leave in August. While we are excited for this next chapter, it's also bittersweet leaving our home in NYC. It will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will visit every chance we get! 

Because so many of you have asked me to blog about our travels, life, and other things, I will do my best to stay more consistent so you can follow along with this journey we're on. Here's to a new season for this little slice of the internet! 


Just as the seasons change, so does my style. A few years ago, I became a huge fan of the minimal style because sticking to a very neutral color palette is great when you're trying to shop ethically and purchase pieces that will carry you for years to come. And while I'm still there and don't want a ton of color, I've also began to surrender to the natural side of me, which means less modern and more... I don't even know what the right term is. But what I do know is that I've been enjoying thrift shopping and want to give my home and my wardrobe some warmth. Dresses with clogs, persian rugs, wicker, and houseplants. It's happening. 

Here area a few things I've been inspired by. All of these can be found on my Pinterest
