How Apple Watch Introduced Me to My Neighbor


So yesterday, I was laying in bed like a lazy chick. (Ok, not that lazy…I had a LONG day of filming and was on my feet all day.) But – I glance at my Apple Watch and notice I haven’t met my goal yet for my daily activity. So I say to myself,  “Self, let’s go on a walk with your activity App.” I strap on my shoes, start a new workout on my watch, and start my walk in my neighborhood.

After about 5 minutes of walking, I stumbled upon a neighbor playing basketball. I introduced myself being the extrovert that I am. He asked me – “you just on a stroll?”

“Why Yes” I told him – “I’m trying to get my steps in cuz: I’m 30, single, and working on my beach bod. Plus, my Apple Watch reminded me.”

Well, guess what?! He flicks his wrist and shows off….HIS NEW APPLE WATCH TOO!

We immediateLY became Best friends. soul sisters. Watch Warriors. Apple Aficionados. Whatever you want to call it – we made a watch match.

This led to an hour of playing basketball, conversations about life, and meeting his other (single!!!) guy roommates. Too much fun to say the least.

Just had to share my story with you. Thank you, Apple Watch, for introducing me to cool people. If I end up marrying the guy, you’ll get a part 2 of this letter. And an invite to the wedding.

But First, Coffee

Hi world. It’s been awhile since I’ve taken a moment to sit down and write a little something on my own blog. I’ve been busy writing for my adorable clients, working hard in my business Content Social Media Queen.

So today, I thought I’d start the morning off with a little post about nothing other than the cool, caffeinated beverage that makes the world go round: COFFEE.

As you can see, I’m already almost done with my first cup. 😉


One of my fave at-home drinks to make is a simple espresso. {I found this adorable espresso maker at a local salvation army for $5.}



When I visited The Simple Farm in Arizona, I learned the art of slowing down, savoring a cup of morning coffee, and just taking a moment to pause and thank God for a new day.

Things have been crazy lately. I wake up at 6am, rush off to my new office space in Fullerton, and sit down to work. I get stuck in these ruts of “work, work work” ~ and although working is wonderful, it’s important to find balance and infuse each day with a bit of rest too.

So this morning, I’m doing just that! I like to call it a little “beauty break.”

I hope you join me now {even if it’s for five minutes} to meditate on the things you’re thankful for today while sippin’ on a cup of joe. Even though life is messy, there’s still bits of beauty we can take time to focus on. ❤

P.S. If you don’t have time necessarily to slow down, check out some of The Best Espresso Makers for a quick cup of joe that totally satisfies!
