Jet.

August 14, 2015

It’s Friday! Yay! I just got an email from jet.com offering 20 of my readers free one year memberships. So what is JET? A mix between Costco and Amazon. They sold me when I heard that–I love both of those. I first met them when I attended the BlogHer Conference in New York last month. […]

Why doesn’t the guy at the grocery store ask me out?

Why doesn’t the guy at the grocery store ask me out?

August 04, 2015

Custom Hand Lettered Helmet.

July 01, 2015

Last week, I was having a little jealousy towards my friend’s watermelon bicycle helmet. I thought I’d try to spruce up my helmet. I spray painted it navy blue and used acrylic paint to hand letter “bicycle” in different languages. I love how it turned out! I rode into the city last week to gather […]

Interrupt Anxiety with Gratitude.

June 30, 2015

(original artwork by Be A Heart Design) I’ve started a little thing on Instagram – Gratitude Tuesday. Gratitude has become my best medicine for anxiety. I use two main tactics when anxiety tries to creep in. 1) I have a discussion with the anxiety and tell it that “I don’t actually do anxiety any more.” My brother read […]

Overalls.

Last month I was in Phoenix after a family vacation to Mexico. Meredith Amadee and I were teaming together for a project for Leah Darrow (which will be released next week).  These days, I don’t really go anywhere without my overalls so I asked her if we could get a couple of shots of them […]

Photo by Marylouise McGraw I am honored to be published, again, over on I Believe in Love where I talk about one of the best lessons I’ve had this year on the subject of dating. And what I didn’t say there is that it translates to all parts of my life–not getting a job […]

Salvation Mountain.

May 25, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, my best gal pal asked me to go on an overnight adventure. She wouldn’t tell me to where, but of course I said sure. Surprises are a huge part of Marylouise’s love language. I struggle with them because I love to plan ahead and know where I’ll be and what […]
