Blue Apron Review

For the past two weeks I have been trying out Blue Apron! It's been honestly really fun. I get to try out new recipes and taste new things that I normally wouldn't try! Since the holidays are around the corner and I will be traveling very soon I thought what better time to try! Blue Apron is great for couples or for the whole family! they have options per how many people you will be feeding. I choose the three meals a week but you can also go two to two. Before each week’s meals are delivered you get to choose what meals sound best to you! They everything is prepackaged and delivered right to your door. It honestly, worked out really well. They only things you need to have is the tools, salt, pepper and olive oil which is all what most people have anyway.

Puppy Engagement Session

The first weekend in December I meet up with Natalia and Chris to be able to catch the last warm rays of fall before we headed into winter. That is so weird to say for me being a born and raised Wisconsinite, but I can’t complain about this amazing weather! Not to mention how we couldn’t have picked a better day for this session. This couple is SERIOUSLY couple goals….they even had matching jackets. How cute is that!??! Not to mention that their dog Ghost was so cute and played along for the pictures. Being only six months old, he was a natural! I couldn’t say enough good things about Natalia and Chris and how welcome they made me feel in this new city! I can’t wait to meet more couples to capture their love together. (Couples can be with out without puppies in tow ;))

The struggles of imposter syndrome

I don’t know about you, but there were sometimes this year where I struggled with imposter syndrome. Who am I to pursue this career in running my own business? What makes me good enough to do this? I’m sure I’m not the only one with those thoughts. In fact I have talked to other entrepreneurs that felt the same way. The world has a way of making you feel that what you are doing isn’t worth a dime sometimes, and in no way is this blog post a way for me to complain about how hard it is to run a business. Yes, it is hard, but if things were easy everyone would be doing it. Everyone tends to have those moments of self doubt, I mean we are only human! It’s natural to feel that way. But you need to remember why you started this journey to begin with. What can you bring to the table other can’t?
